Recently I took it upon myself to create a routine that was more than just building bigger muscles and getting stronger. A routine that built functional real-world applicable strength, explosiveness, agility, speed, flexibility, endurance, and more. Essentially I wanted something that would turn someone into Batman. 6 days, 2 sessions a day with a prime focus on each, and all based around each of the Twelve Olympians, the ruling council of gods from Greek mythology. If you decide to give it a try, pace yourself.

Monday: Zeus and Hera – Upper Body and Power Yoga
Tuesday: Apollo and Aphrodite – Lower Body and Flexibility
Wednesday: Dionysus and Hermes – Core and HIIT
Thursday: Poseidon and Athena – Explosiveness and Agility

Saturday: Artemis and Hephaestus – Endurance Cardio and Corrective
Sunday: Rest
