Being a superhero isn’t easy. In between performing your normal day job and catching villains at night, trying to find sleep, love and maintaining a sense of mystery, you have to find time to stay in shape. After all, aside from needing to be fit and agile to catch The Joker, Lex Luther, Loki, Professor Zoom and all the other villains, nobody wants to look bad in lycra… it shows everything!
But, with the rise in social media, everyone wanting to take selfies with you and so on, it can make getting to the gym (and being left alone when you’re there!) really difficult. Think… how often do you see a superhero in your local gym? They can be pretty shy.
Superhero’s alter egos aren’t too different from you and I so chances are you have the same problem, which is why home training is a lifesaver. Here’s a great bodyweight endurance circuit to boost your fitness. It can be done at home, in the park, anywhere you like at any time you like. Plus it doesn’t require any apparatus, just you, so no excuses!
1. Bodyweight Squats
2. Squat Thrusts
3. Bodyweight Lunges
4. Mountain Climbers
Sets & Reps Numbers: Determine the number of reps and sets according to your own fitness. Set yourself goals and break them. As you improve, increase the sets and rep ranges to ensure your fitness continues to improve.
