Get a long handle wrench with the correct socket size (hex vs 12 point if possible). Get some heavy duty gloves and a 2x4. The bolt or nut should be standard right-hand thread. You need to wedge the 2x4 in such a way as to prevent the blade from turning. Use some Liquid wrench to soak the bolt. You might need to put a cheater bar on that wrench handle. It would help if had someone else to help hold the mower or blade while you apply torque to the bolt or nut.

PS...Disconnect the spark plug before doing any work.

Impact wrench and correct fit 6 point socket.

I agree with RR, an impact makes the job a lot easier! If that's not an option then a socket/breaker bar [cheater pipe if needed] along with a 2x4 [or whatever] is the way to go.

Unless we have several reason to have one I doubt most people will have an impact wrench. The casual DIY will need to innovate. The 2 x 4 and cheater bar is a typical method to remove mower blades.

I hope that all of this discussion about the blades is predicated upon the deck being OFF the machine first. That makes it so much easier to inspect, remove, and re-install the blades.

On a typical walk behind unit the deck does not come off. You tip the mower to one side.
Although the OP is refering to a riding mower, my remarks refer to any mower, riding or walk behind.
