It’s the TV show that’s swept the nation – the incredible ever-changing obstacle course, its fearless contenders – Australian Ninja Warrior is one of the most entertaining shows on television at the moment!
But just what does it take to become a Ninja, and how do you even successfully apply to appear on the show?
Speaking to the Nine Coach Team, Crew Trainers have now revealed the four tests you need to pass if you want to compete in becoming Australia's first Ninja Warrior - so do you have what it takes?
Part 1: Five-minute plank.
Yep, you read that right people. People like you and me are lucky if we can hold a plank for 30 seconds, right? Well you need to hold a plank for FIVE MINUTES.
Part 2: Pull-ups, followed by push-ups for five minutes
So here, you need to pull your body up while hanging on a bar. Then, you need to drop down into a push up and repeat for five minutes. Did we mention that you only get a one minute break between all tests?
Meanwhile, us attempting to do this:
Part 3: Dead hang, for another five minutes
You literally have to hang from a bar without touching the ground. Five minutes. RIP.
Part 4: Skipping, which seems easy right? Wrong.
Guys you guessed it, you need to skip for 5 minutes. But keep in mind, you’ve literally only had one minute break between each of these challenges, so at this point, if you’re still alive, KUDOS.
For those of you still keen on entering Australian Ninja Warrior, go you good thing.
We’ll be right here, cheering you on from the couch.
