Comic Books vs. Working Out

As anyone like me found that comic book heroes are a great way to stay motivated in the gym? Ever since I saw the X-Men cartoon way back in the 90s, I've always wanted to be and look like a superhero. I even created superheros myself that mimic me and what I want. However, since a year or two ago, I finally got motivated to use the gym and now I keep using it. Anyone else workout everyday and read comic books at the same time?

I think wanting to stay healthy and get a date with a girl is enough motivation for me to go the gym..

I workout every day but not because of superheros and comics i just like to take care of my body.

Hmm, good strategy. I went out and bought 50 copies of Kingdom Come, and then put 25 on each end of the bar.

I can't workout and read comics at the same time. I'm at the gym 4-5 days a week, so I have to read all my comics on one of my off days.

I find it impossible to work out while simutaneously reading anything, but I do enjoy both comics and working out on an almost daily basis.

I was first inspired to get into martial arts by the Ninja Turtles, so yeah, I can see it.

Carry ONE graphic novel by 5 minutes is exhausting itself, at least for me and rise it from the floor is die
