Hey Savages! We know you’re busy and that finding the time to train for your next Savage Race can be tough. We want to help you out, so here are five more mud run training workouts that you can do on your lunch break – no equipment needed.

(Check out the first five workouts we shared with you here.)

Remember, although you probably can jump off the couch without any training and complete a Savage Race (with the support of everyone around you, of course), we don’t actually recommend it! Training properly will allow you to get out there and conquer the world’s best obstacles at Savage Race and have a ton of fun while you’re doing it.


Try to tackle these intense workouts at least three times a week leading up to your mud run. Remember to spend a few minutes warming up before you begin the workouts, stay hydrated, and take time to cool down and stretch when you’re done. Most of all, have fun!

(To increase the difficulty of this workout, find a pull-up bar and do a burpee followed by a pull-up. If you can’t do that many pull-ups yet, just do one burpee pull-up for every 5 or 10 regular burpees you complete.)
