My first activity in the 52 week had to be Tough Mudder training!
I decided to start training for this event with Kp Fitness Studio in Abbotsford, BC! I have yet to decide if I will actually do the real Tough Mudder Obstacle Course! Here are a few pictures from todays work out! Of course I am sport my Oakley Running pants and Yellow Oakley Tank!
Class Description: “It’s the toughest obstacle course around, and it’s coming to Whistler this June. Train to join a team, or just take this class to get into the best shape of your life. Full of cardio drills, push-ups and a variety of training obstacles, this class will push you to your limits! ” (Taken from the KP Fitness Website)
What we did: Lunges (LOTS) , jump squats (lots), squats, running, monkey Bars, sprints, Bell Bar lifts, squat Lifts, push ups, planks, mountain climbers and much more.
Difficulty: On the difficulty scale I would give it an 8.5. I would recommend training a bit before you decided to challenge yourself with Tough Mudder Training.
What I liked/disliked: I loved being pushed and a lot of these exercises were challenging for me. I loved working on my upper body strength because that is one of the weakest parts of my body. The only part of the class I didn’t like was push ups but that really has nothing do to with the class but my relationship with push ups (I am working on that.)
Would I do it again: HECK YES!
