Fitness blogger Neila Rey has crafted a series of “visual” workouts meant to get the attention of the (often overweight) geek community. He’s gone through and made a huge number of workouts based on various staples of geek pop culture, from superheroes to video games to movies. Often they don’t seem like they make all that much sense, but on his site he has more detailed descriptions about each one, and explains the tie-ins.
For example, the “Aquaman” workout works muscles that have to do with swimming (which is like, all of them). The Hunger Games workout focuses on agility, being able to bound through a forest in fear of your life. 300’s is pretty ab-centric, obvious to anyone who has seen the film.
It’s a neat idea, and if you do any of this shit enough, it’s going to be pretty hard. Check out the HUGE number of workouts below, and head to his site if you want to actually understand the “lore” behind them.
