I’m a Superman guy. There are Batman guys, Wolverine guys, but Superman has always been my favorite superhero. What’s discerning is, there’s never been a man befitting of the title, Man of Steel, who’s played Mr. Kent on the silver screen. That is, until now. Henry Cavill is the first guy to play Superman who’s taken his craft seriously enough to add muscle. He not only acts like the Man of Steel, he actually looks like him. It’s refreshing. And this commitment looks like it’s going to revive a franchise that needs a solid shot in the arm.
We’ve done other superhero workouts on this site including the Bane Workout, to the Avengers Workout. Both have been a success, and were fun to give to you guys, but this one takes the cake. The focus of these workouts is always to build a body like the superhero. We take their strongest attributes, and create a program around them. For past programs we focused on things like the Hulk’s incredible strength, or Thor’s power, but Superman is different.
He possesses speed, power, strength, endurance, and agility. There’s no single attribute we can focus on that will suffice, we need to focus on them all. And not only that, as Cavill did, we have to build muscle to have the “show” along with the “go”.
To create a program that has every characteristic mentioned is no small order. But that’s exactly what we’ll do.
The Man of Steel Workout
For the Man of Steel Workout we’ll use a 5 day split to cover everything we need to cover. We’ll have muscle building cadences (tempos), as well as cadences and exercises that will improve your power and athleticism. We’ll also add finishers to the end of every workout to improve agility and endurance. Read the rest of this entry »
