When you’re the world’s snarkiest superhero you know you have to be able to do more than just talk the talk. The Deadpool workout puts some substance behind your claims by forging an instrument you can really play, out of your body. All you have to do then is learn how to play it right.
Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 5 or 7 times depending on your fitness level.
Works: glutes, hamstrings, quads, triceps, biceps, lats and shoulders, abs and core.
Tips: Elbow lifts: lie on the floor, preferably on something soft, and push off using your elbows (not your arms) – you should feel the tension in your back. The exercise hits lats the same way pull-ups do so it’s perfectly normal if you find it hard to do. Try to lift your whole body off the floor – your torso and glutes, but if you can’t, just lifting your torso will suffice.
Seagull: while in elbow plank stretch your arm forward, then turn it 90 degrees to the side.
