3 A Letter From Dennis... First and foremost, welcome. If you are reading this, it means you have completed all 8 Phases on the Superhero Body: Bodyweight Edition. I want to thank you for taking action and completing those first 8 phases. You should be VERY proud of that accomplishment. For those of you who do not know me that well yet, my name is Dennis Heenan and I am a Master Certified Turbulence Trainer, Certified Personal Trainer, and Online Health and Nutrition Coach. I am also known as The Clark Kent of Fitness or Superman because of my Superhero-Inspired workout programs. Plus, people say I look like Clark Kent... ======> For the last 8-years, I've had the pleasure of working with thousands of people helping them transform their bodies through my workout programs. I am honestly humbled by each story I get to hear about how one of the programs I put together was able to help someone move closer to their goals... Always makes my day. Anyway, that's enough about me. These Superhero Bodyweight Extra's are about YOU! Because you've just completed Phases 1-8, it's time to take a bit of a turn with your workouts, which is exactly what we are going to do in this program. We are going to focus a lot on getting stronger in this phase as well as increasing our metabolic conditioning. We'll be doing this by focusing on these separately. This program will include weights because we want to make sure you continue progressing forward. These workouts are really as challenging as you make them. If you get after them and go hard, you'll love the results. So stay focused and push hard! Pumped to see what you do in these next few weeks, Dennis Heenan, MCTT Master Certified Turbulence Trainer

4 Tips Before Starting If you are unsure of how to do an exercise, be sure to get instruction from a certified trainer. 2. If something hurts or feels off, don t do that exercise. There are plenty of alternates that you can add in. Please feel free to dennis (at) hiitburn (dot) com for ideas or see the Exercise Library manual for alternative exercises. 3. Because this is a new program, be sure to start slow to avoid injury. Pushing too hard after not working out for a while will only lead to injury or being overly sore. 4. If you find you need more rest in between exercises, take it. Over the course of the program, you should work on shortening your rest periods. 5. This program is demanding so if going five days per week is too much, start by going 3 days a week with your others days being active rest days (walking, hiking, etc.). 6. Always warm up properly. Be sure you are fully warmed up before starting your workouts. 7. Use a foam roll and stretch consistently. This will greatly help with eliminating soreness throughout the program. 8. Get good rest. You must allow your body to recover from your workouts so be sure you are getting good sleep. 9. Drink lots of water. This will keep you hydrated and allow you to lose fat more easily. 10. Have a cool down period at the end of each workout that includes stretching and foam rolling.

5 WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROGRESSION In this program, your ultimate goal is to progress forward with every workout, just like you did in the first 8 phases. However, we'll be doing that a bit differently. (Note: It is very important that you track all the workouts that you do. This includes number of reps, amount of seconds you did an exercise, amount of rest you took, etc.) There are a few different ways to progress in your workouts as you go through this phase: 1) Do more weight than you did the previous time on the strength portion. The first 15 minutes of each workout below will be focused on strength. Your goal here is simple: GET STRONGER. It's that simple. As you go through the next few weeks, your goal is to continue going up in weight on certain exercises. We will really be focusing on deadlifts, squats, presses, and pulls in this section. So in these first 15-minutes, don't worry about getting out of breathe or doing as much as possible. Complete what is outlined, with the goal in mind of getting stronger. 2) Beat your previous score. The second part of these workouts will be focused on metabolic conditioning. These workouts are INTENSE. So push yourself hard in these minutes. This is where you are going to focus on increasing your conditioning, muscular endurance, and cardio-strength.

6 The Superhero Body Overview The Superhero Body: Bodyweight Edition EXTRA'S is outlined to be done for the next 4-weeks. Simply follow what is outlined below and get it done. Strength Progressions On each and every workout that you do, you MUST make sure that you are getting stronger as we discussed on the previous page. Make sure you are progressing as you go through the entire program. This is what will allow you to continue to see incredible results. Warm-Up For All Workouts Before you start all of the workouts on the program, no matter what phase, be sure to start with the general warm-up below: Prisoner Squats: 12 reps Pushups: 12 reps Alternating Lunges: 10 reps each side Jog in Place: 30 seconds Rest 20 seconds and repeat 2 total times When you advance into the more challenging workouts that require you to lift weights, it will be important that you warm up even more. For example, if you are doing barbell squats that day, go through 2-3 rounds with a lighter weight before starting. Interval Timer For some of the workouts below, you will need an interval timer. To set it up, be sure to set a 5-7 second transition period. For example, if you have 3 exercises in a row for 30 seconds each with no rest between exercises, you should set the interval at 30 seconds on, 5 second transition. You can download an interval timer on your smart phone or find one at GymBoss.com Have Fun! This is the biggest piece of advice that I can give you on the program... HAVE FUN! Remember, that you are only working out 3 days per week for minutes per session. You can't beat that if you ask me.
