Legolas-Ultimate-Workout

The workout we have come up with today to post is the Legolas Workout! This one is inspired by the physique that Legolas has in the The Lord Of The Rings. Don’t forget that nutrition plays an important role when striving to achieve various fitness and strength goals!

Research process for celebrities/characters/etc:

When we are researching workouts for different anime characters, celebrities, cartoon characters, athletes, politicians, etc… We go through a fairly large deep dive into the data we can find available through books, movies, comic books, interviews, articles that have been written, and we often even reach out to contact the individuals to gather data if at all possible. Then using our education and knowledge we formulate workout information based on what the research and outreach information obtained.

Legolas Stats:

Height: (Fan Guesstimate) 6′-6’5
Weight: (Fan Guesstimate) 140-180 lbs

Legolas Workout:

Training Volume:

6 days per week

Explanation:

I could program 7 days a week, but we’re mere humans, so we will need at least one day off. I’m going to program you 2 days for strength and agility, 2 days for calisthenics and 2 days for stamina.  You’ll go through this cycle twice per week.  It will also be your job to work on your archery and overall weaponry training if you want to really be anything like Legolas.

Legolas Workout: Calisthenics Training

I’m a huge fanboy of Aubrey Marcus and Onnit.com.

And for this one we’ll be utilizing calisthenics programming directly from his site for this one.

I’ll be providing you the routine, which gives you multiple options to choose from, depending on your fitness level.

Workout #1: Beginner Calisthenics Circuit Workout

Do all the exercises in the order shown, resting 30 seconds between exercises and 3 minutes afterward. Repeat for 3 rounds.

1. 10 pullups
Do these with your palms facing away from you, hands just outside shoulder-width apart.

2. 10 chinups
Palms face toward you, hands shoulder-width apart.

3. 20 dips
Use parallel bars and lower your body until your upper arms are parallel to the floor.

4 . 25 jump squats
Squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor and jump as high as you can.

5. 20 pushups
Lower your body until your chest is about an inch above the floor. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your heels. Actively pull your ribs and pelvis toward each other, engaging your core—don’t let your lower back sag.

6. 50 crunches
Curl your torso up until your shoulder blades are off the floor.

7. 10 burpees
Stand with feet shoulder width and squat down to place your hands on the floor. Now shoot your legs behind you fast so you end up in the top position of a pushup. Jump your legs back up so they land between your hands and then stand up quickly.

8. 30 seconds jumping rope

Workout #2: Intermediate Calisthenics Circuit Workout

Rest 5 seconds between exercises and 8 minutes at the end of one round. Repeat for 2 rounds.

1. 5 muscle ups
Hang from a pullup bar with hands outside shoulder width and legs straight. Draw your shoulder blades back and together and arch your back to swing your body forward a bit. Then quickly try to bring your shoulders and hips together so that your body swings back and rises up until your hips touch the bar. Press your body straight up over the bar to lock out your elbows.

2. 50 pushups

3. 25 jump squats

4. 15 burpees

5. 15 pullups

6. 60 seconds leg flutters
Lie on your back on the floor and tuck your tailbone to flatten your lower back into the floor. Brace your core. Extend your legs overhead and then lower them as far as you can before you feel your lower back is about to buckle up from the floor. Begin raising and lowering both legs, alternately, a few inches (as if swimming). Keep your core braced so your lower back stays against the floor.

7. 10 pullups

8. 30-second sprint, nonstop
Run up a hill if you can, or run in place.

Workout #3: Advanced Calisthenics Circuit Routine

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds straight. Do NOT rest between exercises. Complete 1 round.

1. Hold a handstand for 30 seconds
You can do the handstand using a wall for support. Place your hands about six inches back from the wall and get into a downward dog pose. Step one foot toward the wall and then kick your back leg up while focusing your eyes on the floor in front of you. Press into your hands and straighten your body with your heels against the wall.

2. Jump squats

3. Wall push ups
Get into pushup position in front of a wall and walk your feet up the wall behind you. Press your feet into the wall to create tension throughout your body, and perform pushups.

4. Kick up push ups
Sit on the floor and roll backward, as if doing a reverse somersault. Stop when your feet face the ceiling and reverse the direction quickly, performing a kickup—kick your feet up and forward so you launch off the floor and land in a deep squat. From there, drop into a pushup.

5. Squat position move side to side
Get into a low squat and step side to side. Take two steps one direction and then switch directions.

6. X’s and O’s core workout
Lie on your back on the floor and extend your arms and legs to form an X-shape. Crunch and draw your knees to your chest, hugging them with your arms.

7. Dips

8. Jumping lunges
Get into a lunge position—rear knee just above the floor and front knee bent 90 degrees. Jump and switch legs in mid air, landing with the opposite leg forward.

9. Hops
Hop side to side, staying on the balls of your feet.

10. Pullups

Legolas Workout: Endurance Training

Legolas didn’t have an elliptical, bike, rower, and treadmill to choose from, but he did have the open land and water to utilize.

For that reason your two endurance training days will either be rowing or running.

On either day it’s your job to complete either:

One 5-10k run

OR

One 5-10k row

I give varying distances for you guys to scale and also choose based on your skill level for each type of cardio.
