The Shadowhunters Guide to Training

Shadowhunters. They have to be in great shape. It's just a job requirement. And the cast has really embraced this and gone to town. And fortunately for all of us, they're documenting pretty much all of it on social media.

Start with a bit of intense cardio. Basketball is always a winner.


Work on your upper body strength.


And learn how to throw a punch or two.


Master the art of parkour.


But try not to get hurt.

Good job Dom!

And help you lift the equivalent of two small mundies.
