SAS and Tough Mudder Training


SAS & Tough Mudder Training Blog 2

So, the first week of training complete, and wow what a week that was.

The training side of things open my eyes a little to where my conditioning level is, for example the video attached, pull ups I’ve never been great with any way, but can grind out 10, but this workout was 5 reps at the end of every round of these powerbag burpees rounds being 21reps first round then 18-15-12-9 till eventually 5 reps. Safe to say my arms were useless after that.

Still feeling my way through it, all sessions should start with a bit of mobility work, stop me feeling too bad the following day. As well as including 2 runs a week and a couple of extra full body conditioning sessions.

Fortunately, my brother is doing the SAS event with me so we’ve already had a couple of awesome outdoor training sessions together.




It has certainly been a change of styles for me, my strength work I have kept it simple otherwise my energy is drained when doing the conditioning after. I do look at upping the conditioning a lot over time, but I must ensure my body is happy with this 5 – 6 days a week.

Next step is to get my food intake on point…
