Did you know Mockingbird and Hawkeye once eloped in the Poconos?
I know. Crazy.
But, kind of cool…
We just recently saw one of our most unique superheroes, Nightrunner, and we’ve also been on an Agents of SHIELD kick with our celebrities (Chloe Bennet and Brett Dalton, with more to come); so I thought it would be cool to have a mixture of uniqueness and SHIELD for the woman character workout this week.
Mockingbird is a highly trained agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as a Ph.D in biology.
Superheroes always tend to have both the physical AND mental training, if you haven’t noticed.
Real Name: Barbara Morse
Mockingbird is technically pretty tall.
Although we have had some “super” tall characters.
But don’t worry, either way.
Not only are these routines for all shapes and sizes – they also work for both men and women – regardless of the gender of the hero!
Mockingbird 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!
Mockingbird Workout Routine Research
We’ve officially made it to “the fun part”.
I know, I say that every time.
You should be used to it.
This is where I get to tell you guys the “how” and “why” of the routine we’re about to build by discussing the characters (in this case Mockingbird’s) powers and abilities.
Starting with her Marvel Wiki we find out some information about her origin:
Human mutated by a functional combination of the Infinity Formula and the Super Soldier Serum
I mean, I’ll take some of that if they’re offering…
We have seen Super Soldier Serum alternatives (that aren’t steroids) on the site before, but man, a mix of that AND Infinity Formula sounds pretty good.
Swapping over to her Wikipedia page we find out what they have listed as her abilities:
Proficient in armed combat, espionage, gymnastics, and martial arts
Enhanced strength, agility, healing, and halted aging
Well, I kind of figured we’d be seeing some enhanced strength.
I know, shameless plug. And it wasn’t even good.
It was worth a shot.
But, back on track. It seems we have some pretty useful information, and I’m excited to pair a few things to this routine.
