Happy National Superhero Day! We all like to feel strong, capable, invincible even...a superhero in our daily work and personal lives. When we think of heroic acts, daring rescues from burning buildings and tales of battlefield bravery often spring to mind. But heroism on a smaller, individual scale is also worthy of acknowledgement and celebration.
When do you feel the most heroic and empowered? Maybe it’s after teaching your son or daughter an important life lesson, or nailing your new self-care routine, or successfully completing that major work project. Maybe it’s after hitting a new mile mark on your run, or adding weight to those deadlift reps!
At TruFit, we’re all about that superhero attitude and feeling (and t-shirts, as you might already know from our Instagram!). So before you see Avengers: Infinity War this weekend, or clean out your garage, or sit down to finalize that white paper, etc., get fully pumped and in that superhero zone with these 3 Superhero-Worthy Workout Moves!

Here, Mary demonstrates a mover we're calling the "Wonderlift": The one-legged deadlift (also known as the non-surgical butt lift, if you'd like to know). Here are a few things to keep in mind:
3) The Spiderman
Climbing around like Spiderman is a total-body exercise that not only works your arms and your legs but also works your core and connects the opposite sides of your body together and allows both sides of your brain to fire! So when we say it's total-body we include your mind! Here's what to look for when performing Spiderman crawls:
