If you were to be given a chance to be Superman, would you accept it? Or just a hero that would save a girl from a speeding ten-wheeler truck or the ones that chase a bad guys from rooftop to rooftop? It’ll be nice to have these really cool abilities that we see in televisions. Now, of course you would want that ability right? So we’re going to talk about these special workouts that would help you build not just your strength but your flexibility, speed and power or in four words, The hero training workouts.
The hero training that would touch all the areas of training like cardio, muscle strengthening and endurance. We will focus on the lower part of body with the structure of this routine since most of the power that we will exert is coming from our legs.
We will do a couple of challenge workouts to train you like crazy. Challenge workouts will be a series of routine similar to other non-hero workouts but the thing is, this workout will not be giving you anytime to rest and will be slashing your breaks to the minimum.

You are also expected to improve with that exercise, failing less and getting your reps higher with a fewer time.
Plyometrics is also important in our hero training. We have to know how to jump and not be exhausted while doing so. Plyometrics is simply jump training. It aims to exert maximum force in shorter interval times to increase power and speed. High jumpers and street runners use this to navigate from roof top to roof top.
There are minute workouts that would need proper training and attention too. Our grip is very important in doing heroic tasks like holding on to the ledge while carrying a girl below you who’s about to fall off from a building or saving a lady in distress who’s about to be crush by a car. Lifting heavy things matters too. By improving our arms strength and its muscle endurance, we can carry heavy things for longer time. We can do quads or hack squat, military press that would focus on your shoulder and kettle bell swings using your hips. Continue reading
