MEN IN BLACK WORKOUT: YOU CAN DO IT! THE VIDEO DEMONSTRATION OF THIS 30-MINUTE WORKOUT PROMISED to be just another totally ridiculous session that only really, really tough GUYS would want to attempt, requiring a good amount of coordination. My mind was already set against Luke Zocchi's routine, Tweeted by @Mens HealthMag, because Chris Hemsworth’s stunt double Bobby Hanton was being asked to run through the moves. There would be lots of movement with heavy weights that would increase the risk of injury, I predicted.
However, because the first warm-up moves seemed reasonable, I did not stop the video and watched to the end. It was great! I want to do it.
Dumbbell weights are utilized that are heavier than I would attempt, but mostly the moves appear customizable. So, plan to pick the weight that allows you to maintain good form and progress as strength is built. Except for the burpee (no jump at the end) the exercises that comprise this session do not require abrupt movements. Most are common components of routines I’ve been prescribed after age 50!
Warm up (10 minutes):
Body weight squats
Curl and press
Standing triceps extensions
Reverse lunge curl
Shoulder combo: lateral raise- front raise-upright row
This is the workout CH trainer says was used on the road while filming MEN IN BLACK, to give the star a trimmer, “more athletic, less bulky look than Thor”. It’s portable, and can be used by men and women!
