How to transform your body to look like a Marvel Superhero: Days 2-4
Yesterday was our first day in week one of a workout plan on how to transform your body to look like a Marvel Superhero. If you missed it, click here.
You can help complete the look by purchasing one of the special edition NRL Marvel Jerseys, but if your goal is to really look like the Incredible Hulk, then you’re going to need to put the hard yards in.
Day two consists of more weights. Don’t forget as discussed previously, you need to go a little heavier with the weights because you will be doing less reps. Put in 100 per cent effort, because tomorrow is a recovery day. It doesn’t mean you can rest on your laurels, it simply means have a break from weight lifting. There’s no reason why you can’t go for a bushwalk or bike ride with friends.
Don’t forget between each set, take a two minute rest so your workout is more effective.
Always have a five minute warm up on the treadmill or cross trainer. Then you can get started pumping iron (just like Iron man). Before you launch into your weight sets, do a weight warm up with a 10 to 15 bench presses, bench presses, seated calf raises and a deadlift. Add 30 squats with a 60 second rest at the half way mark and then you’re ready to begin the hard work. Repeat the exercises you did throughout the warm up with three sets of between 7-10 reps with the addition of three sets of leg presses, weighted squats and incline crunches.
Days three and four are repeats of your first two days of your programme.
Just remember the results you get will reflect the effort you put in and this programme should be done in conjunction with a well-balanced diet.
