Tough Mudder's 20 Most Badass Obstacles

Got the guts to enter? Presenting our Men's Fitness Survival Guide to Tough Mudder's most intense challenges — loaded with insider-approved strategies to get you through America's toughest obstacle course.

7. Electric Shock Therapy

This obstacle, by far Tough Mudder’s most infamous, contrary to gossip, won’t kill you. None of the obstacles will, because they’re designed and maintained by adventure-specialist engineers. But Electric Shock Therapy will sear you with a white-hot blinding live wire. Wires pulsing with as many as 10,000 electric volts dangle over a field of mud that you sprint through.

Hint: Watch out for the bales of hay scattered in various locations on the field. Trip over one of these and you’ll gag on a mouthful of electrifying mud.
