I Made The HYROX World Championships And This Is How I Trained

Earlier this year, I made it through to the HYROX World Championships in Manchester, and boy was it a test. If you haven’t heard of the indoor fitness competition before, let me fill you in. It involves running 1km before completing a functional fitness test (for example, 100 wall balls) and then doing this seven more times. Each exercise element is different and will test different areas of your fitness. 

I’d class myself as a HYROX fan. I’ve competed nine times now (I know—addict), completing solo, relay, and same-sex and mixed doubles races. It’s safe to say I know the workout pretty well.
