Lattice simulations of Yang-Mills theories coupled with $N_f$ flavours of fermions in the adjoint representation provide a way to probe the non-perturbative regime of a plethora of different physical scenarios, such as Supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory to BSM models. Although the large-$N_c$ limit of these theories can give important insight into the strongly coupled regime of these models, the computational cost of standard lattice simulations involving dynamical adjoint fermions forces one to small-$N_c$ gauge groups. In this talk I am going to present how this large-$N_c$ limit is tackled on the lattice by exploiting volume reduction through twisted boundary conditions, which allows one to simulate these theories at high values of $N_c$ such as 289,361. I will emphasise our most recent results on Yang-Mills theory coupled with one Majorana adjoint fermions ($N_f=\frac{1}{2}$), which corresponds to $\mathcal{N}=1$ SUSY Yang-Mills.
