Captain Barbell (Mon 6/21/10)

no images were found

I find some downright goofy stuff on Google Images. Last night I discovered this photo of “Captain Barbell”, the name of a superhero on television (and movies) in the Philippines. You’d think it would be someone like Louie Simmons or something, but apparently they have a different idea of barbell strength in the Philippines since they chose this kid. At first I thought this was a joke, but he’s a real hero over there. Check him out at My guess is that Captain Barbell isn’t all that successful, since their domain name uses the suffix (.org) designated for non-profit organizations…


Using 75% of your 1RM Shoulder Press, complete 3 rounds of the following sequence:

4 Shoulder Presses
3 Push Presses
2 Push Jerks

Rest as needed between rounds, but do not put the bar down during a round.


10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of:

2 x Situp
150 meter run

You only run one 150 m run per round. So round one looks like 10 pullups, 10 pushups, 20 situps, 150 meter run. Round two is 9 pullups, 9 pushups, 18 situps, 150 meter run, etc…

    Captain Barbell is a TV show. It’s not a real person
