When you think of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, you most likely think of WWE, hard core workouts, and some kind of incredible, albeit ridiculous, action movie. So we’re not surprised to hear news out of the US today that the future Presidential candidate (allegedly) is launching his own Ninja Warrior-inspired fitness challenge show. What else would you expect from the athlete turned media mogul?!
Titled “The Titan Games”, Johnson’s new show is currently recruiting contestants who are “motivated, athletic, and willing to push themselves beyond their limits”. The show’s application site promises challenges of epic proportions, testing physical, mental and emotion endurance. Sign us up.
“Titans aren’t born, they’re made,” says Mr Rock in the promo video. And how exactly do you make a Titan? While the challenges in the show are yet to be outlined, contestants will be required to pass the following set of standards as part of their application:
- Hold a plank for as long as possible
- Skipping for two minutes unbroken
- A descending ladder of pull-ups and push-ups, starting with five reps of each, then dropping by one each set.
