As a HUGE comic book fan, I’m beyond pumped for the upcoming Avengers summer blockbuster movie. I’ve written various pieces on all of the avengers individual workouts since they’ve gotten in great shape for all the roles.
While this is not the original Avengers as it was in the comic book since there’s no Ant Man and Wasp, this version is pretty cool.
To breakdown the cast, here’s who’s assembling
Chris Evans As Captain America: A living legend that more than lives up to his legend, Steve Rogers is the only super solider from World War II
Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark: Billionaire playboy who made himself an invincible suit of armor.
Marc Ruffalo as The Incredible Hulk: A lab experiment gone wrong, gamma radiation has transformed Dr. Bruce Banner into the strongest being in the world.
Chris Hemsworth as Thor:The god of Thunder, Thor uses Mjolnir to avenge.
Scarleet Johannson as Black Widow: A spy for government agency S.H.I.E.L.D
Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye: Another S.H.I.E.L.D spy who was born in a circus with fantastic vision.
Samuel L Jackson As Nick Fury: The director of S.H.I.E.L.D who watches and monitors all super human activity.
The Avengers Workout?
While they all trained separately for their roles, there is some common training methods that they all used in their workouts
Chris Evans had to bulk up for Captain America. Body part splits emphasizes the shows muscles:biceps, triceps and chest and shoulders.
Followed by an intense circuit training to burn any additional fat.
Chris Hemwsworth’s workout also consists of some of the main bodybuilding exercises to build muscle but he also used various kettlebell movements to get used to handling the hammer.
Scarlett Johnanssons workout was more centered around her hamstrings and arms so that you had that toned look. Large amounts of circuit training were involved here.

The coolest thing about all of the different workouts is that it showed that you can use various training methods and still get an intense workout. It doesn’t matter how you organize your workout, the important part is that you train hard.
