Earlier this week, we met Jonathan Codd, one of our readers who's taking on the challenge of Tough Mudder event later this month. 

In partnership with Under Armour and the folks at Metabolic Fitness on Drury Street, Jonathan is going to undertake a demanding new fitness routine put together by Dave Peelo, and if you want to get some training tips for the event or just shake up your regular gym routine, we've got some top tips from Dave on what exercises you should be doing. In this first video, there are two exercises highlighted that will help you to get past specific obstacles on the course, but will also really help you to feel the burn at your next session if you add them into your workout. 

If you want to win tickets to take part in Tough Mudder, as well as some amazing Under Amour workout gear, then you can get involved by joining the conversation on social media. All you have to do is tell us about your workout, whether you're training for Tough Mudder or not, and tag @UnderArmourIRL and the hashtag #IWILL. If you're up early to get a gym session in or making sure that you run a few miles after work, we want to hear about it!

Stay tuned over the next few weeks too as we get more training tips from Dave and the crew at Metabolic Fitness as well as keep up to date with how Jonathan is getting on as he trains for one of the most intense obstacle courses out there.
