Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Every week there seems to be a new fitness challenge trending online. But one that’s managed to remain popular over the last couple of years is the 75 Hard Challenge. On TikTok alone, the hashtag #75Hard has more than 1.2 billion views.

It’s easy to see why this particular challenge has remained so popular, with video after video of people showing off their staggering body transformations – which they claim are the result of the challenge.

The 75 Hard challenge is not for the faint of heart. In short, it involves doing each of the following daily for 75 days:

•Two 45-minute workouts
•Following a diet (whatever diet you choose)
•Reading ten pages of a non-fiction book
•Drinking 4.5 litres of water

If any component is failed, the challenge must start again from day one.
