This one has been asked for more time than I can count.
The Legend of Zelda first came out on February 21, 1986.
Yesterday I was playing the newest Link and Zelda masterpiece on Nintendo Switch: Breath of the Wild.
It’s safe to say The Legend has lived on.
See what I did there?
Okay, enough jokes. It’s time to get into some Link awesomeness.
Adult Link Stats:
Weight: 155 lbs
Real Name: Link
(But he is Hylian so he is able to harness powers humans may otherwise not be able to)
Link is pretty short.
I mean he’s still got an inch or so on me but who’s counting?
And, of course, Hulk is up there with Thor, Kratos, Thanos and Cyborg, and sometimes even portrayed much taller.
Yeah, that means All Might is the tallest at 7’2, only sometimes surpassed by The Hulk!
But, don’t worry if you’re not the same height or weight range.
We write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.

Link Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like The Hulk may get something specifically different**
Every hero needs to still have a good diet.
Unfortunately we can train like them, but I don’t think any of us are suddenly getting their powers, or the ability to magically stop caring about nutrition.
You can’t out train your diet, so I want to still give some pillars for nutrition.
You can start by checking out The Nutrition Pillars on the site, but I’ll break down some more information for you guys as well.
That being said, I also recommend tracking and paying attention to protein intake.
BUT, there are a thousand different ways to reach your goals, so finding the most sustainable way is what’s important.
Which is why our Academy utilizes multiple different Nutrition Classes (Greek Gods, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Monks, Samurais, Minimalists, Superhumans) to allow people to choose what is right for YOU!

Link Workout Routine Research
Alright, alright, alright.
I’m saying it again, and I don’t care!
This is where we get into “the fun part” of the article.
The place I get to go over the “how” and “why” of the workout routine we’re going to build.
Basically I get to break down the powers and abilities of the specific character, in this case Link.
First and foremost let’s talk about the obvious: the sword fighting and hand-to-hand combat.
Link’s Wiki Page states:
Link is remarkably proficient with a wide variety of weapons, instruments, and other items, being able to use them immediately upon obtaining them. His preferred weapon of choice though, are swords. In each of his adventures, Link’s primary form of combat becomes sword fighting, usually with a shield unless the sword requires two hands to wield or times when he does not have a shield.
Insert some help from Coach Derek!
And another Wiki continues this by stating:
Additionally, Link is portrayed as having an excellent physical condition, performing backflips easily as well as being able to best others in sumo-wrestling, as seen in Twilight Princess.
Which is something I think we definitely need to keep in mind.
I can’t even perform backflips with ease….
But I think we’re ready.
We’re going to need some heavy duty conditioning for this one.
Link Workout Routine
7 days per week
Link doesn’t stop. He’s always moving and he’s always in incredible condition (with the proper training). I’m going to program you condition days, performance days, and a workout routine circuit, each of which you’ll perform two times per week, and on the final day it’s your off day which you’ll just be required to get active for!
HIIT Treadmill Training:
20 minutes of high intensity interval training
1 minute off: walk on 18.104.22.168 mph
1 minute on: run 5.5.-10 mph
Repeat on and off for 20 min
Jog 3 miles
This one you’re going to have to get a little creative.
You can choose to practice hand-to-hand combat programs from Coach Derek, you can take classes locally, or you can do it on your own.
You can even head out to a local gymnastics place and substitute that.
Either way, though, it’s your job to get moving and practice MMA and gymnastics style training.
