The 10 Funniest Exercises From Marvel Comics’ Weird Fitness Book

This extremely rare book features everybody’s favorite Marvel characters demonstrating some slightly ridiculous exercises. But it does beg the question: Do superheroes really need to workout?

Published in 1976, the Strength and Fitness Book is a fitness guide that showed off the iconic Marvel superheroes’ own fitness routines. Unfortunately, the exercises recommend in this book do very little for getting non-superheroes into shape.

1. I hope Medusa didn’t exert herself with that eye-rolling exercise…

Also note that this exercise is for blue-eyed people/superheroes only!

2. …or her hair pulling exercise (?!).

3. For anyone needing help on learning how to jump, Silver Surfer is here.

4. Why do sit-ups, when you can just roll back and forth until you get sick!

5. I doubt that’s all Thor did to get those biceps.

Also, is Thor talking about what I think he is talking about when he said this:

“Not even Hercules, son of Zeus, can abuse his body with impunity.”

6. It’s nice that Sue Storm’s self-esteem is tied into what Dr. Reed thinks about her.

7. Luke Cage proves there is never a bad time to throw shade:

8. Spidey likes to show off his muffet…

9. …and how flexible he is.

10. Finally we have the most challenging exercise: roaring. You might need to build up to this one, so it might be best to start slow, like just yawning.
