Welsh ultra-runner, Rhys Jenkins, took the Rokman 1,000 Squat Sickener challenge to a new level when he performed it in 55-degree heat!

The 1,000 Squat sickener is one of the infamous Rokman challenges, designed to test and build your mental resilience. Consisting of 1,000 bodyweight squats in under an hour, the challenge pushes the participant way beyond their perceived limits.

Last Saturday, Rokman endurance athlete, Rhys Jenkins turned the heat up on the challenge (pardon the pun) by taking on the challenge in 55-degree heat in a sauna!

Why the hell would he do that, we hear you ask! 

Rhys Jenkins Rokman Squat Challenge

On 6th July, Rhys will be returning to Death Valley, CA, to compete in the toughest footrace on the planet, Badwater 135. A 135-mile trek with over 4,000ft of elevation through the hottest place on planet Earth.

To aid Rhys in his preparations and heat training, we delivered him very own Rokman Sanctuary of Sweat sauna, but on one condition....he takes on the 1,000 Squat Sickener challenge inside it!

Rhys put in a big shift and ground out the 1,000 squats in 54-minutes. We hope it was worth it, Rhys!
