Feeling pumped about Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World,” which premiers today? Here’s another way you can get into the spirit: the Thor workout routine.
While you can’t get into an actual battle with Loki or the shadowy enemy that threatens to destroy Earth, you can get into fighting shape with the new Thor workout designed by New York Sports Club trainer Eli Ingram, who worked with Marvel to create an authentically Thor-inspired, total body exercise routine. Expect to slam a (granted, fake) hammer into the floor, spar with partners and break a serious sweat, all while adrenaline-boosting, superhero-themed music plays on.
The class is offered at select club locations in New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia from now through December (details here). Best of all, it’s free to both members and non-members—yep, free. If you can’t make it to the class, try these four body-toning exercises from the workout at home. Don’t have a spare Thor hammer? No problem. Just swap in a 2-pound dumbbell and start swinging away like the evil-conquering badass that you are.
