Tough Mudder prep workout

tough mudder plan

All right, let’s do this. Another Tough Mudder, another training plan! I got this one off the internet, and it looks, horrible brutal challenging. I confess that I have never done plyometrics, which sounds like a branch of physics to be honest, and I have no idea what Tabata training is, but I guess I’m going to find out!

Here is the upper body workout I have planned:

  1. Push-ups
  2. Bent-over rows
  3. Tricep extensions
  4. Bicep curls
  5. Shoulder press
  6. Pull ups (once I get a bar)
  7. Bench dips (to failure)
  8. Under the fence push-ups
  9. Shoulder flys

Do 1-4, rest for 1 minute then repeat x 2. Do 5-7, rest for 1 minute then repeat x 2. Do 8-9, rest for 1 minute then repeat x 2. Each set, aim for 15-20 before increasing the weight, if I’m using any.

Here is the lower body workout:

  1. Squats
  2. Lunges
  3. Standing leg curls
  4. Bridges
  5. Wide-leg jump squats
  6. Calf raises (work up to doing on a stepstool)
  7. Long-arm Swiss ball crunch
  8. Jackknives

Do 1-4, rest for 1 minute then repeat x 2. Do 5-6, rest for 1 minute then repeat x 2. Do 7-8, rest for 1 minute the repeat x 2.

Once I get to doing the total body workouts, I’ll make up some combination of the two and post it here. I’ll also post the plyometric and Tabata workouts, once I find ones that don’t make me want to weep.
