The Incredible Hulk Lou Ferrigno

Lou Ferrigno portrayed the Incredible Hulk on television every week in the late 1970s, and TV movies in the 1980s.  He's a big inspiration to me as he crosses the lines between two of my favorite hobbies, weightlifting and comic books. He started weight lifting at age 13. His role model was body builder and Hercules star Steve Reeves. He's won IFBB Mr. America, IFBB Mr. Universe, came second and third in the Mr. Olympia competition, and second in the Masters Olympia. His favorite superheroes as a child were Spider-man and the Hulk of course. Lou Ferrigno Weightlifting Tips

The Thing Michael Chiklis

In the comics the Thing is often the Hulk's sparring mate. In the movies Michael Chiklis played the orange monster on the big screen. How hard was it for Michael Chiklis to train for the Thing, well his problem was not building his muscles to look like the Thing as much as building his endurance to wear the Thing costume.  In an interview in the July 2005 issue of Muscle & Fitness. He describes the training he's done for the Fantastic Four movie and the kind of workout he did before his popular TV show the Shield. He says he ran 6 to 7 miles a day trying to build up his endurance for the the part of the Thing to build up his endurance. He says he wished he had trained with a weighted vest so his legs would have been prepared to deal with the weight. The suit weighed 60 pounds and was 5 inches thick in some places.
