#T5W TOP 5 WEDNESDAY: Characters' Fitness Routines Wanted

Hey guys! This is a new feature I joined from Goodreads' Top 5 Wednesdays, a weekly book group about our top five favorite things in the middle of the week.

Created by Lainey from GingerReadsLainey and now hosted by Samantha from ThoughtsonTomes, this week's entry describes the top 5 favorite characters' fitness routines I'd like to have.

August 16th: Characters' Fitness Routines You Want
-- This can be interpreted a bunch of different ways! Fitness comes in many different packages. This can be about characters who are super fast, strong, agile, good at dancing, good at climbing, athletes, or foodies! Whatever it means to you. This is inspired by those routines you see in magazines for actors, but with more of an open mind and less body shaming :)


Keep in mind that I am in no way, shape or form a gymnast, dancer, athlete or pursue in anything that isn't on the couch. I used to dance "professionally" when I was younger, but that consisted of beginner levels of ballet, tap, jazz, a teeny bit of jazz-hip-hop, lyrical/contemporary and modern. But I haven't practiced those dance forms since my sophomore year of college! So I'm basically a little out of shape haha! But these are some characters' routines I admire.


5. Katniss' Archery in "The Hunger Games"


I think of archery as a gun but with more depth and stability. You can't accidentally shoot someone with a bow and arrow the way you can with a gun. And Katniss does a lot of running, hunting and staying alive, which is always a plus! 


4. Josie and Reid's Anomaly Training in "Anomaly"


Josie and Reid's training is more mental than physical, but I remember that in the first book, Reid trained his girlfriend with physical tactics. Such as coming up with a burning building, holding on for dear life below a deep, dark ravines and things like that. No wonder their heads hurt after such a vigourous mental workout! 

3. Dauntless Training in "Divergent"


The Dauntless gang focus a lot on cardio, strength, karate, boxing, wrestling, running, all of the things I know I'd die from, but I'd still want to do it because...FOUR! ♥

2. Shadowhunter Training in "Mortal Instruments"


Another training situation where they do a lot of running, fighting, combat training, sword fighting, karate, and things like that. I know I'd die, but JACE, ALEC, LUKE, and IZZY! ♥ Oh and Clary too lol. They just know how to make everything look so effortless!

1. Korra from "Legend of Korra" (Avatar: the Last Airbender spinoff)



I haven't watched Korra in a minute, but I remembered her physique being really fit, quick and agile, more than Katara was. And it was beautiful to see because I could see her physique, not under baggy clothes like Katara had Seasons 1-3. Whatever Korra's workout routine was, I kinda want it.


So those are my top 5 favorite characters' fitness routines. I'd love to know your choices in the comments below!
