Underwater Tunnels

Get ready to hold your breath and prepare for the rush. Underwater Tunnels challenges Mudders to repeatedly plunge under a series of barrels dispersed throughout a cold body of water. Submerge, emerge, repeat is the name of this game.

Suggested Training

Fill your bathtub with cold water. Lower yourself into the icy tub and submerge your head for 10 seconds. Come up for 5 seconds, then submerge again for 10 seconds. Repeat 10 times.

Swimming – Swim 50 yards at medium pace. Rest 90 seconds and repeat 4 times.
Jump Rope – Perform 100 singles or 50 doubles. Rest for 1 minute. Perform 4 rounds.
Thrusters- Complete 15 reps. Rest for 3 minutes. Repeat 3 times.

Tough Mudder Tips

Take a deep breath, duck under the barrels and surface on the other side. Repeat. Tough Mudder suggests using the buddy system. Pick a partner to help guide you through the obstacle.

As a Legionnaire, you earn the right to bypass Electroshock Therapy at the end of a Tough Mudder Course. Unlike the walk of shame you did this morning, this obstacle takes you to higher ground to watch first timers dodge a field of wires. After your exit to a crash pad below, what comes next is up to you - go straight for a Cold Shock Top or go back for a dose of Electroshock.
