X-Men Workout: Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past has arrived so it’s time to develop the strength of Wolverine, the agility of Beast, and the mental brawn of Professor Charles Xavier with our quick, 20-minute workout. You’ll feel like one of your favorite X-Men – and don’t forget to take our poll below!

Directions: This workout will have different “timelines” – and each will honor one of our favorite X-Men. It’ll be tabata-style (20 seconds of exercise, 10 seconds rest; for a total of 8 times through) with a 1-2 minute break in between sets.

X-Men Workout



3 x 15 BOSU Squats

Professor X Timeline
Pretend you are in the chair with these squat holds and work those arms with some battle ropes!

Beast Timeline
Get those legs toned and crawl like a beast!

Wolverine Timeline
Get that chest and shoulders jacked like Logan!  Go heavy on the upright rows, even if it means more weight!

Magneto Timeline
Harness your anger for some ball slams and shoulder presses.  If you are using a 20lb medicine ball, there may not be a need to go too heavy for the shoulder presses.

Poll: Who is your favorite mutant?
