Tarzan on American Ninja Warrior

Just watching this American Ninja Warrior Workout with Tarzan Ben Melick is enough to make most of us sweat!  If you've ever done a Crossfit WOD or HIIT (high intensity interval training) then you might have a glimpse into what it takes to compete, but do you have the skill level?

How To Audition for American Ninja Warrior

Pretty much anyone can apply to compete on the show, there are just a few eligibility requirements including being a resident of the United States and and at least 21 years of age or older.  In addition to that you need to submit a couple of pictures and a exercise video demo of about 2 to 3 minutes. 

Training For American Ninja Warrior

Weightlifting is just a small component of you workout routine for this kind of competition.  You have to have cardio endurance as well.  Most important of all is grip strength.  Almost every obstacle in the course involves using your upper body.  Grip strength requires training the smaller muscles of the hands, wrist and forearm. This is different that the grip you'd have on a dumbbell or climbing rope.  That has to do with the traction between your skin and the surface you're grasping.  Crossfit hand grips like GymPaws Leather weightlifting grips are ideal because they enhance your grip without sticking to the surface and compromising or inhibiting natural rotation.

This is only a small exercise demo showing merely seconds of what a typical daily workout might consist of.  It's going to require dedication to not only your weight lifting routine in the gym, but paying attention to your nutritional intake is possibly the most important.  Even the best Crossfit Hand Grips won't get you in shape to compete on the show as much as we'd love to believe so!
