Uncanny Strength Training


Superheroes need to have physical strength!

It doesn't mean we have to turn green and lift a house, but we should have at the very minimum, a modest level of strength that allows us to do all the things we want to do.

Strength becomes even more important as we age. A study has shown that a person's life span is reduced if they have trouble getting up and down from the ground. Ultimately, the research proves that a lack of strength and flexibility has detrimental affects to our lives.

In an online article titled, "Maximizing Functional Abilities in the Older Adult" by Jeff Janot, Ph.D. and Len Kravitz, Ph.D. a shocking study was cited which revealed that 28% of men and 66% of women above the age of 74 couldn't lift more than 10 pounds. This extreme lack of strength can make even simple everyday tasks difficult, thus making it hard to stay independent into old age

It's important to get strong and stay strong for our entire lives!

Strength training can provide the following benefits:

  • Stronger bones

  • Longer life span

  • Better sleep

  • Reduced anxiety and depression

  • Increased metabolism

  • Improved cardiovascular function

  • Injury prevention

That's why I recommend that every aspiring superhero follow a strength training program.

There are many different ways to structure a strength training program, but I chose a specific template for Superhero training because it covers all fundamental movements and is extremely time efficient.

The following areas are addressed in the Superhero Strength Training Program and they will be covered in detail in my upcoming blog posts:

  • Warm-Up (mobility, corrective exercise, and movement prep)

  • Power (when applicable)

  • Strength training exercises based on fundamental movements (organized in supersets and mini-circuits)

  • Workout Finishers (if time and energy allows)
