What do Superman, Thor, Batman, and Captain America all have in common?
Now, it’s not clear if their genetic mutations make them that way naturally (do they even lift, bro?). But one thing is certain:
If you want a body like a superhero, you’re going to have to get your butt to the gym and lift some heavy weights.
Luckily, Greg O’Gallagher from Kinobody has come up with a perfect weight training program designed to get you that superhero body.
It’s called the Superhero Bulking Program.
I’m about to tell you everything you could possibly want to know about this program, so let’s dive in to the basics first.
Overall, the Superhero Bulking Program is a crazy effective muscle and strength building course. It’s probably the most fun I’ve ever had following a workout program, and I’ve tried them all!
You’ll get a ton of advanced ideas for busting strength plateaus, and advice on how to strategically gain muscle as a more advanced lifter. However, the video quality is poor and it’d be great if there were a little more detail in the nutrition guide.
|What I Liked||What I Didn’t Like|
|The program works! (Scroll down for transformations)||Video quality is poor|
|Only 3 workouts per week!||A little bit pricey for a workout program|
|An absolute ton of advanced plateau-busting strategies|
Does the Superhero Bulking Program work?
Abso-friggin-lutely it does.
I want to mention here that I’ve not personally followed the program (yet), but I’ve been on the other Kinobody programs for almost a year and have seen great results.
Just take a look at this Superhero transformation:
One year on my Greek God and Superhero Bulking Program by @andrespres Nice work man. He just killed it!!! Link in my bio to use my physique quiz to transform your body. On the left Andres was two years into training and was stuck, not seeing any further results. So he joined my program and hasn’t looked back
How hard is it?
Can you get to the gym three days per week and eat lots of great food?
If you can do that, you can get a Superhero Physique. It’s not easy, but it’s simple and it works.
Is the program a good value?
As I’ll mention later, there is a LOT of content included here. You get multiple different workout variations and bonuses to keep your physique improving for a long time to come.
What do you get with the Superhero Bulking Program?
Inside this program, you’ll find:
- Intro and philosophy of the course (and why it’s different from traditional bodybuilding)
- Access to a private members’ support forum
- In-depth explanations of two key training styles: Reverse Pyramid and Rest Pause
- The full workout routine: Four different three-day splits that rotate to focus on different muscle groups.
- Video demonstrations
- Nutrition and diet plan
- Tons of bonus content
How do you get it?
All of the Kinobody programs come delivered via an interface called Teachable, which lists different modules you then work your way through.
It’s set up much like an online educational class would be. It’s interactive and works fairly well, though it’s not particularly flashy.
It’s nice to have the program written out though, as opposed to programs that come only on DVD or digital video.
(And yes, that means there is no Superhero Bulking Program pdf)
9 months on my superhero program took Juan from a disenfranchised emo to a complete fucking beast. From 190 lbs to 200 lbs while dropping from 13% body fat to 8-9% body fat. This equates to about 20 lbs of muscle gain and 10 lbs of fat loss over the course of the 9 months. With the fasting and nutrition strategy in my superhero program this is very possible. Using strategic daily fasts and weekly low calorie and high calorie days, you can support fat loss and muscle growth to the tune of 1 lbs of fat loss and 2 lbs of muscle gain each month. Fuck yah.

Pros and Cons of the Kinobody Superhero Bulking Program
Let’s dive in to what I liked and didn’t like about the program.
Multiple specialization phases.
This isn’t a program where you’ll be banging your head against a wall with the same exercises for 12-16 weeks at a time. It’s set up so that every 8 weeks, you switch up the routine:
First, targeting your chest and back hard. Then building out your shoulders. Then bringing up your arms. And finally returning to a somewhat even split for a few more weeks. The Superhero Bulking Program definitely keeps things interesting and attacks lagging muscle groups.
By far the most leg work of any Kinobody program.
Greg’s programs come under fire a lot for not including many leg exercises, but Superhero would be the exception. On the lower body day you’ll be doing at least 3-4 great leg moves to put on just the right amount of size.
By no means is cardio necessary on the Superhero Bulking Program, but after all… shouldn’t a hero have excellent athleticism and endurance? Greg has put together a pretty cool and unique guide to bringing up your overall conditioning without sabotaging your muscle gains.
Tons of bonus material.
If you really want massive and powerful legs, there’s a bonus workout just for that.
If you’d like a spreadsheet to help you track your progress, there’s one included. And there’s yet another workout modification based on the “Thor” physique, which is all about upper chest and shoulders. There’s just a ton of content here.
I mention this in all my reviews of the Kinobody programs, but Greg’s videos could really use an update.
The two videos included in the Superhero program are pretty low quality and don’t really match up with the workout program. In the videos he only demonstrates a few exercises, and in a different order from how they appear in the split.
(Greg recently mentioned on Instagram that he would be re-filming and adding content for his programs, so stay tuned.)
Nutrition plan is sparse.
The diet plan here is pretty simple: Small calorie surplus with an adequate mix of macronutrients and adequate protein. That’s pretty much it. Greg does give some information on how to use Intermittent Fasting during a lean bulk, but this is pretty straightforward. It might be nice to have some information on troubleshooting the diet if you’re gaining weight too fast or having trouble putting on muscle.
And that’s pretty much it!
I definitely recommend the Superhero Bulking Program for anyone who’s ready to pack on SERIOUS muscle and get the body they never even dreamed of having.
You’ll have to look past the outdated and amateurish videos, but the content inside is absolute gold. There’s a ton of knowledge and muscle-building hacks included, and if you follow the program to a tee, I have no doubt your physique will reach new heights.
