The 75 Hard Challenge is nothing less than “Ironman for your brain
About 75 Hard Challenge?
The 75 Hard Challenge is a “mental toughness program” and a 75-day plan created by author, speaker, supplement company owner, and podcaster Andy Frisella. He has dubbed this as a mental toughness program — not a fitness challenge in order to reach his own personal goal of getting his life back on track.
5 rules of 75 HARD
- Follow a healthy diet of your choosing… strictly. No slip-ups, “cheat meals” or alcohol allowed.
- Aim to work out twice a day every day, for at least 45 minutes per day. One workout must be outdoors.
- Drink 1 gallon of water per day.
- Take progress pictures every single day.
- Read 10 pages of a self-help book each day.
- Take a five-minute cold shower.
Is 75 HARD safe?
There is nothing inherently unsafe about 75 HARD.
After all, many of the pillars of the program — 90 minutes of daily movement, eating with your health in mind, prioritizing hydration — are all in adherence to common recommendations by governing bodies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization.
One element of the program that can either work for or against an individual’s safety is customization.
Sure, that means people can morph the program to fit their current fitness level, training age, and recovery practices. But it also means someone can fail to adequately adapt the program to their abilities and wind up burning out, overreaching, risking injury, or under-eating. For instance, the program requires that an individual do two 45-minute workouts each day.
Well, it’s all about sticking to your plan.
According to Women Fitness experts,The best element of a good fitness and nutrition plan is something that is sustainable for you individually. The changes you make should be changes that you are able to continue with long-term and that direct you towards your goals.
