Super Hero workout
The answer is both simple and complicated, and it comes down to periodization - which is the KEY to unlocking body re-composition. Periodization is the only way to program that allows for simultaneous fat loss and muscle gain - the ONLY way to program that will allow you to build a SUPER HERO body.
This is a term that refers to setting up your training into specific blocks of time (or periods), with each period focusing on a specific facet of the overall fitness spectrum.
The goal is to periodize in a way which allows the qualities you develop to build upon one another, creating a system where each period is more effective because of the ones that came before-this is known as "progressive programming."
It is that very approach to programming that makes the Super Hero Workout stand out: every phase builds on the phase that came before it, allowing you to make progress each and every week.
And even though each phase focuses on specific goals, the fact is that the overall design on the program allows for you to chip away at secondary goals while you're making direct strides towards the primary goal of that phase.
Here's a rundown. As I said, SHW has four phases, and each phase focuses on developing one specific quality.
Strength and power are two of the hallmarks of many, many super heroes. And that's reflected in their physiques.
Just look at this summer's big super hero blockbuster movies, if you need proof.
Chris Hemsworth, the lucky man who got to take on the role of Thor has always been blessed with good looks, but he wasn't always as buff and defined as what you saw in the movie. Same thing goes for Chris Evans, the guy who scored the gig of Captain America.
Both guys were pretty nicely cut going into the contract signing....but the catch was they needed to get BUFF...and by the time they showed up on the set for the first day of shooting, they looked every bit the part.
Heroes like The Punisher and Catwoman score big time "bad-ass points" with most comic book fans - and with good reason.
The Punisher's pretty darn tough and so is Catwoman in her own right, but let's face it, they ain't the Hulk. Even Spiderman - who DID have some enhancements to his strength - is known more for his dexterity and quickness than brute force.
This is the Phase of the system that will show you EXACTLY how to build the essential "springboard" strength your body needs to rise to that next level of muscle building.
If your goal is to stack on some heavy-duty muscle (minus the green flesh), this is what all the work you put into the first two phases has prepared you for and you'll definitely be caught off guard by how quickly you advance.
Phase three arms you with a very unique combination of split-training integrated with fitness routines that go against many of the "norms" of the fitness community, but that’s what makes this phase such a break-through program.
WARNING: Do Not skip to this phase without completing the first two phases. The exercises in this phase are so intensely advanced, they're guaranteed to tear you apart if you aren’t fully prepared.
This is the finish line where - all the hard work you've done in the previous three phases gets sharply refined and polished up...
By the end of phase 4, you're as fit as any fighter of evil and you'll see firsthand just how specifically engineered The Super Hero Workout system is for fast-paced conditioning.
Here's how all of this comes together to help you lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, developing the ultimate super hero body...
