Bring the Monster: 2 Avengers-Villain-Themed Workouts

I love the idea of a mixed-up workout of the day, but the ones I’m able to find are usually too hard. I’m pretty sure I would die doing one. So I started making up my own. These take about 1-1.5 hours to do each. If you’d like to try them, God help you. Consult a physician beforehand. And possibly during.

You may have noticed that there aren’t any weight amounts listed. I challenge myself, but probably not as much as I should. My pushups are from the knee, not the feet (“girly pushups”). Feel free to go easy, or go into monster mode.

Hope you have fun with these — or as much fun as your agonized body will allow.

The day after is a rest day. Refuel with shawarma.
