I’ve decided to ride the Tough Mudder high all week. If you’ve ever done a big race, you know what I mean–you want the feeling to last forever.
One of the first challenging obstacles I hit was called Balls Out (still wondering about that name!). This obstacle required participants to horizontally traverse an inclined wall using ropes spread out along the way. My biggest challenges were reaching the ropes and holding my body weight–especially with one arm while I was reaching for the next rope.
This was a consistent area of weakness for me so this workout is meant to put emphasis on single arm strength. I also added explosive lower body power to balance out this workout to mirror movements required for obstacles like Everest.
Go through the cycle one time for a 6 minute quick HIIT, or more depending on your individual needs.
Tough Mudder or not, this workout will challenge your single arm strength and get your heart racing.
How often do you incorporate HIIT into your routine?
