Like Liam Neeson in Taken, to compete on American Ninja Warrior you’ll need a certain set of skills. Push around all the weights you want, if you don’t train right, you probably won’t conquer one obstacle. We spoke with Aaron Himelright, a competitive rock climber and parkour enthusiast who made it to the finals in Vegas on the show this year, to help create a workout that could prepare you for the competition. He stressed the importance of focusing on your grip, core, and overall endurance when training. With Himelright’s help, we’ve come up with a workout that will prepare you for the Rumbling Dice, Salmon Ladder, and other obstacles.
