Supernatural Workout Inspiration

I thought I'd share a workout theme from one of my favorite shows. Also, I figured I'd start sharing some workouts inspired by movies, shows, and--if I can find them--comic/books! Trust me, this is going to be a thing ;)

I thought I'd start out with the show I currently am running behind on due to, well, running. Due to my increase in physical activity, I'm a few episodes behind on Supernatural on Hulu+. So I think that maybe I can incorporate some strength training using just my body weight and still, catch up on one of my shows.

In case you haven't seen it, Supernatural is a show about the two Winchester brothers, Dean and Sam who come from a line of slayers demon-hunters who travel all over Canada the US, hunting demons, helping ghost and poltergeists move on, salting and burning, and well, dealing with all the heeby jeebies! The writing is quite fun, and you can tell the cast really has a blast with the show. My fiance and I are pretty darn hooked!

So here's the first fandom work out!
First the workout:

But you know, what workout would be complete without out some great workout gear?
None! NONE I tell you!
And with that some gear:

And if its cold/raining in your neck of the woods (or you want to sweat some more):

And a flirtier cut:

And Some very necessary workout shorts (I also like these since they are red and black, and the design reminds me of classic rock band Van Halen a little):

If you're like me, I like to throw some leggings or "bike shorts" under these just to have a bit more fun, and also they can make these shorts more comfortable.

And of course some cool shoesies!

Or for you runners who may desire a "barefoot-sans-bruises" feel, try the ultra comfortable, if admittedly ugly Vibram Five Finger shoes!

PS: those toe shoes--like Izma--are hideous beyond all belief. But, unlike Izma, they are AMAZINGLY comfortable! I wear my one pair to comic con ALL the time, and my feet don't kill me! Also, if you cosplay a barefoot character, they're pretty great too!



Lastly, in case you'd rather be running, or doing cardio (or need some serious tunage), and still want some Supernatural influence, here's a "mix-tape":

Hope you enjoyed the Supernatural inspired gym/running post!

Would you be interested in doing this?
Is there a movie, or show you'd like to see me highlight?

  1. Oh my goodness. The hubs and I have just gotten into Supernatural and I have to say we are completely addicted. I love that it plays to the grey side of morality and I also love how clever and self-referential it can be. It's also filmed in my hometown, so pointing out the actual locations of things is a fun game for me. I really like that black hoodie & I LOVE your mixtape. Cheers!

    1. My hubby and I love it too!
      And I too LOVE self-referencing! Anything that plays with the fourth-wall, or makes fun of itself is great in my book!

      I need to visit Canada! For real! Glad you like the mix tape! I totally miss making them/mixed CDs! It often feels like a lost love.

    2. You should totally visit Canada, although not all parts of Canada are the same. I currently live in Montreal, which is RADICALLY different from my hometown of Vancouver, where Supernatural is filmed.
