Tough Mudder’s new 2019 obstacles have been revealed—and now there's just one question: Do you have what it takes to tackle them?

Let's take a look at the new and improved Augustus Gloop 2.0: a claustrophobia-inducing climb through high-pressure jets of water that you’ll find on every Tough Mudder Classic course this year.

You’ll need grip strength—not to mention the ability to put any fear of heights aside—to conquer this updated obstacle.

Check out the video below, featuring Coach and US Chief Obstacle Tester, Jimmy, for a little taste of what you’ll be facing:


We’ve created a three-exercise, 21-15-9 workout that’ll help you develop the strength you need to scale Augustus Gloop 2.0.
