Workout Like Your Favorite Superheroes, Spies, and Slayers!

We know it can be rough to get our exercise on regularly, and we’re not going to be those Type-A people who try to convince you that it’s totally easy once you get the hang of it. But we stumbled across these awesome workout guides from Neila Rey—all for free, and most of them named for familiar characters that we know and love. There’s a legion of sets named for the spadex-clad, the super bad, and the secret sass-masters we would all like to emulate on certain days of the week.

What we’re saying is, exercising is way more fun if you can pretend to be Peter Parker while doing some weirdly modified push-ups.

Keep you back safe from Bane with this useful sheet:

And there are so. many. more. Like, every Avenger, and a Portal one, and one if you want to run like the Doctor. These are golden. Everything on the site is free and awesome and printable to hang on the wall for inspiration. It actually makes us excited at the prospect of sit-ups. (Just kidding. Only a monster would be excited by that.)

Hear that, gym teachers of yesteryear? This was literally all it took to get us interested in burpees.
