Superhero workouts

We're breaking out a sweat just watching.

Sky Movies have produced a series of Superhero workouts to promote their Comic Book Heroes season and kindly sent us over some work out routines. We want to look like Wolverine (wearing the Wonder Woman outfit) so here's their handy guide, written in gym code.

Stand facing a raised platform while holding two barbell directly below your shoulders and keeping your torso upright
Place one foot onto the platform. Stand-up by extending hip and knee of the raised leg, placing both feet onto the platform.

The Comic Book Heroes Season is on Sky Movies HD from Monday, 22 –28 August.
