Everyone desires to have arms like the Hulk, right?

If Mark Ruffalo portrays the Incredible Hulk today, back in the days, Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno Sr. took on the roles of Dr. David Banner and the Hulk in the popular TV series from 1977 to 1982. When Dr. David Banner, played by Bixby, got mad, he transformed into the formidable green giant embodied by Ferrigno. Even without the green paint, Ferrigno remains a muscular force in the bodybuilding world. To attain robust arms and a solid chest like the classic Hulk, consider adopting his workout regimen.

According to Ferrigno in an interview with Men’s Health, “I’ve witnessed individuals clumsily lifting 50-pound dumbbells, swinging them around, and dropping them just to impress. You wouldn’t want to provoke my anger — because when I’m angry, you wouldn’t want me to transform into the Incredible Hulk! So, ensure that you execute each move correctly.”

To kickstart the workout routine, Ferrigno recommends beginning with a ten-minute jog to warm up. If you lack a suitable outdoor area for jogging, a treadmill walk for the same duration will suffice. Following the warm-up, start with the Machine Chest Press for three sets of 12 repetitions. Move on to the Machine Preacher Curl, also in three sets of 12 reps. Next, incorporate the Alternating Dumbbell Curl for 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps per arm. Lastly, wrap things up with the Triceps Kickback, again aiming for 3 sets of 8 to 10 reps per arm.

Ferrigno emphasizes that he would never push anyone into body training against their will. However, for those who choose to engage, he expects full and proper commitment. He states, “I’m not at a bar or nightclub. I’m not strolling the boardwalk at the beach. I’m at the gym. The gym is where you enhance your physique, get fit, and take care of yourself.”
