Sometimes, its hard to get motivated to get into the gym. It is so easy to become complacent and lazy… that is, until you see Oliver Queen with his shirt off! Nothing is more persuasive than a bare-chested super hero. Men and women can agree, this guy has one hell of a 6-pack! But there is no supernatural power at work here, the Green Arrow works hard to look that good. He works so hard, in fact, that Men’s Fitness Magazine created a workout inspired by Arrow, himself. The magazine breaks the workout down into 3 intense training days.

If you’re anything like me, you are currently YouTubing more than half of these exercises because you have no idea what they are… whatever at least we’re trying.
As you know, weeks are 7 days long, but there are only 3 days of training. Not to worry, Men’s Fitness dedicates the days in between as days of recovery AND skill development. These are the days when Arrow would practice a skill like jiu jitsu, archery and parkour. Fweh… I’m sweating already!
With the help of Men’s Fitness, we are all one step closer to that Oliver Queen 6-pack and deep V. For the full training guide, check out the Men’s Fitness article here.
