How To Get Superhero Strong
It worked for Deadpool. Now it’ll work for you.

Celebrity Trainer Don Saladino, NASM, specializes in rapid transformations. The brains behind the new Men’s Health workout-video program, Superhero Shred, he’s spent his career packing muscle onto the likes of Ryan Reynolds and Zachary Levi. “A four-week transformation is possible,” Saladino says. “But it’s not easy.” The workout that’ll get you started on the road to a superhero body is here. Cape not included.

Directions: Do this workout 4 days a week, lifting heavy while maintaining good form. In week 1, do 3 sets of 10 to 12 reps for each move. In week 2, do 4 sets of 6 to 8 reps. In week 3, do 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps. In week 4, do each move for 40 seconds, then rest 20 seconds; do 3 rounds of each move. On non training days, aim to spend a half-hour jogging, walking, or playing a sport.


Side Plank Knee-to-elbow Lie on your left side, left forearm on the floor, legs extended and stacked. Raise your hips off the floor, forming a straight line from torso through feet. Extend your right hand straight over your head. This is the start (a). Tuck your right knee to your chest; tuck your right elbow toward your knee as you do this (b). Squeeze your abs, then return to the start. That’s 1 rep.
