I’ve never liked going to the gym. And it’s not that I’m a couch potato. Far from it – I used to sprint for all my schools and I’ve been a dedicated martial artist for over 13 years (and counting), learning various martial arts including full contact Karate and Kickboxing. I never liked going to the gym because I simply never wanted to look or be like the guys there.
Yes, they were huge. Yes, they were strong. But they were also grossly disproportionate and painfully slow. As a martial artist, I didn’t want biceps the size of my own head, and I didn’t need to be able to bench a rhino’s weight. I didn’t want to be huge if I was gonna be clumsy and not be able to fit into a suit, so I stayed away from lifting too much weight. It was all severely overrated to me. Until I discovered Boyka, that is.
Yuri Boyka. How’s that for a perfect physique. Scott Adkins’ workout routine had to be pretty impressive for him to have the combination of size, strength, speed, power, flexibility and agility, not to mention martial arts skill. You noticed him doing flying kicks and flips right? I don’t know of a single conventional bodybuilder who has such a perfect combination.
Put the fancy kicks, tricks and flips aside; those are feats which you can probably learn at your local martial arts class (with tonnes of practice, of course). What I really wanted to know was how he was able to build his muscle proportionally, without hindering his martial ability and/or speed at all. In fact, it seems like his training made him even faster and more powerful. He built what I like to refer to as “The Superhero Body”. Perfectly balanced, powerful, yet practical and not over-muscled. Did I mention supremely attractive? Let’s face it – Even women these days aren’t attracted by those ‘body-builder/meat head” types. They wouldn’t be able to control themselves with a Boyka/Scott Adkins around though. Heck, I wouldn’t be able to control myself, either. So I did some digging, and here’s what I found:
