We need all our Justice League members.
Now, I’m not saying that means we’re done yet, but we’re trying.
We’ve seen Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and now Green Lantern. We’re going to have to hit a couple more members to make me feel okay about this. Like the Flash, Martian Manhunter and even Hawkgirl.
Which one do you guys want to see first?
Oh, and just so you guys aren’t scared to continue: this is not Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern (that would be scary). This is Green Lantern as a character.
Green Lantern Stats:
Real Name: Hal Jordan
Green Lantern is right in range with most of our other heroes.
Although we have seen some that are huge…
We’ve had Superman at 6’3, and Captain America, Scorpion and Batman at 6’2, with Thor and Cyborg towering over them at 6’6, Thanos and King right there with them at 6’7, and Deathstroke right below at 6’5.
And, of course, Hulk is up there with Thor, Kratos, Thanos and Cyborg, and sometimes even portrayed much taller.
But, don’t worry if you’re not the same height or weight range.
We write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.

Green Lantern Diet and Nutrition
**Keep in mind: this section will be nearly identical for each hero, unless I mentioned differently (for example someone like The Hulk may get something specifically different**
Every hero needs to still have a good diet.
Unfortunately we can train like them, but I don’t think any of us are suddenly getting their powers, or the ability to magically stop caring about nutrition.
You can’t out train your diet, so I want to still give some pillars for nutrition.
You can start by checking out The Nutrition Pillars on the site, but I’ll break down some more information for you guys as well.
That being said, I also recommend tracking and paying attention to protein intake.
BUT, there are a thousand different ways to reach your goals, so finding the most sustainable way is what’s important.
Which is why our Academy utilizes multiple different Nutrition Classes (Greek Gods, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Monks, Samurais, Minimalists, Superhumans) to allow people to choose what is right for YOU!
And then we built The SHJ Legacy Program to help you achieve it!

Green Lantern Workout Routine Research
I’m going to say it again. So if you don’t want to hear it just skip a few lines.
We’re finally at “the fun part” of the article.
This is where I get to break down the “how” and “why” of the workout routine I’m going to be building.
AKA: I get to go through the powers, abilities and traits for the character, in this case Green Lantern (Hal Jordan’s).
Hal Jordan’s Wiki tells us this about his abilities:
- Trained aircraft pilot
Power ring grants:
- Generation of hard-light constructs
- Force fields
We don’t have a his power ring….
And I can’t get you one!
So, I figured this would be an awesome time to base a character around an Air Force Pilot!
How many chances do we have to do that!?
Here’s a Basic Training chart for The Air Force shared by Wikipedia:
The following chart shows physical fitness achievement levels as well as the minimum requirements for graduating Air Force Basic Military Training:
Males Run (1.5 mile) Push-ups Sit-ups Pull-ups Liberator (minimum graduation standard) 11:57 min. 33 42 0 Thunderbolt (honor graduate standard) 9:30 min. 55 60 5 Warhawk (extraordinary – highest standard) 8:55 min. 65 70 10 Females Run (1.5 mile) Push-ups Sit-ups Pull-ups Liberator (minimum graduation standard) 14:21 min. 27 50 0 Thunderbolt (honor graduate standard) 12:00 min. 37 60 0 Warhawk (extraordinary – highest standard) 10:23 min. 47 54 0
So now we’re ready to do this.
We want to hit Warhawk!

Green Lantern Workout Routine
5+ days per week
This routine is going to revolve heavily around bodyweight movements. I’m excited to be basing it off of Air Force Pilot achievements, but I also want to give you guys another bodyweight program (because so many of you guys ask for this)! I’m programming you 4 days. It’s your jog to take a day off after four and then start the cycle back up again! (If you can’t get in an MMA training day, which should be intense, sub it with an off-day and repeat a 3 day cycle early).

The Superhero Academy now comes with an Upgrade Your Workout Tool that allows Academy members to turn any SHJ workout into a 4-8 week fully planned regime detailing exact weights to lift and including reverse & tradition pyramid training, straight sets, super sets, progressive overload and more.
