I’m not sure if you know this or not, but one of the most
anticipated movies of the summer is due to open at
And they’re projecting it to be one of the hottest movies
of the summer, if not THE hottest.
If you don’t know what it is I’ll give you a hint –
– there’s a big green angry guy in it
– there’s also a Viking god
– a guy made of “iron”
– and a WWII veteran
Of course I’m talking about “The Avengers” which has
already taken in over $250 Million worldwide. (Yikes!)
Me personally, I like the Hulk – “Smash!”
Fits my temper. Get it? LOL.
Anyway, these guys are all Superheros and they’re
know for having super strength and stamina.
(Except Ironman – he’s got a super-brain and a metal
Which is why we like them – because they’re all archetypes
of who we really want to be.
(Archetypes – that’s a big word…)
And the cool thing is, kettlebells are arguably one of the
best tools to forge a Superhero’s body.
All you gotta do is lift heavy and cut your rest time down.
That’ll strip off some fat and put on muscle in all the right
So here’s a workout fit for a Superhero – you. (You’re a
hero to somebody you know.)
It’s called “The Olympic”.
Here’s the program –
You’ll need a KB that’s a 7 rep max on your Press for this.
Day 1: Clean + Front Squat
Day 2: Clean + Press
Day 3: Clean + Front Squat + Press
Here are the guidelines:
– Use ladders of 1,2,3,4,5 for the first 4 weeks
– Perform as a complex (all the reps of one exercise before
the reps of the next)
– Set your timer for 20 minutes
– Do as many sets as possible in 20 minutes
– Rest as necessary
– Perform on alternating days – like M-W-F
This will put muscle on in all the right Superhero places and
simultaneously trim off any unwanted flab and really drive
up your conditioning levels.
To get the other 8 weeks of this program and 48 other
time-efficient kettlebell programs – cause hey – Superheros
can’t be wasting all day working out and they gotta save
their energy to fight the bad guys – get your copy of “Kettlebell
Time to go save my world.
P.S. In case you’re wondering, S.H.I.E.L.D. stands for “Strategic
Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division.”
And it’s headed by Nick Fury, leader of The Avengers.
P.P.S. If you had a superhero name, what would it be?
