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.
Shelve your pride and call on your inner ballerina for this one. Combining all elements of balance, agility and muscular control, launch yourself over four-foot wide mud pits. If you miss the other side, you’ll plunge face-first into a pit of mud and you’ll be at the mercy of your teammates to haul you out.
Hint: Engage your core and don’t over shoot your jump because some of the mud pits are spaced close together. Breathe deeply once, take a running leap and reach for the other side by bicycle-kicking your legs.
