Red Hulk Workout


Red Hulk Workout

The workout we have come up with today to post is the Red Hulk Workout! This one is inspired by the physique that Red Hulk has in the Marvel Comics. 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.

Red Hulk Stats:

Height: Ross: 6’1, Hulk: 7’0-10
Weight: Ross: 245 lbs., Hulk: 1200-2000 lbs

Red Hulk Workout:

Training Volume:

3 days per week


For this one we’re going to be using Bill Starr, AKA Madcow’s 5×5 Program.  We’ll be training 3 days per week but hitting multiple compounds each day and then rounding it off with assistance work.  Please read the explanation on both the compounds and accessory lifts below.

Powerlifting Explanation:

Madcow’s 5×5 is a workout program that increases total body strength and begins with 4 sets of 5 reps with weight that gradually increases until the final heavy, 5th set.

Extra Notes:

1×5 denotes 1 heavy set of 5 reps, after using 4 sets to gradually increase to this heavy weight.

As seen on Wednesday’s Squat, 2×5 means 3 sets gradually increasing to a heavy weight and doing 5 reps of this weight for 2 sets.

Squat 1×3 (Friday) involves 4 sets of 5, gradually increasing weight until the last, heavy set of 3 for the final set of the exercise. However, on Friday, you also perform a light set of 8 reps.

Assistance Explanation:

These are the lifts you perform that will assist your primary lifts.  There is no need to max out on these or aim for continuous progression like you do on the main lifts.  Pick a weight you can do comfortably in the rep ranges suggested and make increases when you can.  Quality reps and resistance is what we’re going for with these.  These are also what Bill called “Beach Work”.  DO NOT DO MORE THAN THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT FOR ASSISTANCE WORK.
