What Is 75 HARD? What Is The Live Hard Program?

“What Is 75 HARD? What is the Live Hard Program? What Is Phase 1? What is Phase 2? What is Phase 3?”

What is the Live Hard Program?

The Live Hard Program is a four part program. 

The first step is 75 HARD. The next step is Phase 1, followed by Phase 2, and, finally, Phase 3. The Live Hard program is to be completed in one calendar year.

What is 75 HARD?

75 HARD is simple.

Do the following 75 straight days:

  • Take a progress photo
  • Two 45 minute workouts – one outside. Workouts do not have to be back-to-back.
  • Drink one gallon of water
  • Read 10 pages – non-fiction/self-help book. No audiobooks.
  • Choose a diet – ZERO alcohol/soft drinks/cheat meals

If you don’t complete all five in a day, you go back to Day 1.

75 HARD is the first part of the Live Hard Program.

After 75 HARD is complete, you can move on to Phase 1.

What Is Phase 1?

Phase 1 is to be completed after you’ve completed 75HARD.

In Phase 1, you do all the tasks you did during 75HARD plus three more for 30 days. So here’s what you is expected of you in Phase 1:

  • Take a progress photo
  • Workout twice/day (once outside)
  • Drink one gallon of water
  • Read 10 pages (of a non-fiction/self-help book)
  • Choose a diet (no alcohol/soft drinks/cheat meals)
  • Add three items to your Power List (eight total)
  • Take a five minute cold shower
  • Do ten minutes of visualization

You do not need to do Phase 1 the day after completing 75HARD.

What is Phase 2?

You must wait 30 days after completing Phase 1 in order to do Phase 2. 

Phase 2 is made up of the same components of 75HARD:

  • Take a progress photo
  • Workout twice/day (once outside)
  • Drink one gallon of water
  • Read 10 pages (of a non-fiction/self-help book)
  • Choose a diet (no alcohol/soft drinks/cheat meals)

What is Phase 3?

Phase 3 is to be started on the final 30 days of the year you started 75HARD. 

For example, if you started 75HARD on September 18, 2019, you have to start your Phase 3 on August 18, 2019.

  • Take a progress photo
  • Workout twice/day (once outside)
  • Drink one gallon of water
  • Read 10 pages (of a non-fiction/self-help book)
  • Choose a diet (no alcohol/soft drinks/cheat meals)
  • Add three items to your Power List (to have a total of eight)
  • Take a five minute cold shower (really cold)
  • Do ten minutes of visualization
  • One random act of kindness (must be journaled)
  • Talk to a stranger

“Random acts of kindness” include donating, volunteering, paying for a stranger’s meal, picking up groceries for someone in need. Each random act of kindness must be journaled.

“Talk to a stranger” means it must be done in person and it must be more than just a greeting. The following do not count: a compliment, a hello, or a head nod. Interacting with someone on social media does not count. The goal is to at least be able to learn something small from a stranger.

FAQ

Who created the Live Hard Program?

Andy Frisella is the owner of 1st Phorm, a nine-figure supplement company. He’s the host of two popular podcasts – the MFCEO Project and Real AF. 

He created the Live Hard Program (and 75 HARD, specifically) when he had 75 days left on a weight loss bet. His goal was not to make money with the program, but to help people change their life and cultivate mental toughness/discipline.

Andy created the program and all of the rules.

One thing Andy notes is not to change anything. Everything is intentional. Just follow the program exactly as it is outlined.

This seems like it would be really hard and unnecessary. Why bother?

In order to get into excellent shape, you don’t need to work out twice a day. You don’t need to eat a perfect diet. But this isn’t about getting into excellent shape. This is about challenging yourself mentally. This is about winning a war with yourself. (I learned more about myself from 75 HARD than anything else in my entire life.)

Who will know if I completed the tasks?

Nobody. But you will and that’s all that counts.

I’m looking for an accountability partner?

Excellent! Streaks is here for that reason.

Are audiobooks allowed for reading?

No.

What if you finish all the tasks after midnight?

That’s okay. You have until you go to bed to complete the activities.
