It’s shameless marketing, I know, connecting search trends to a geeky topic like the launch of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Live Rugby Tickets.co.uk have done just that, and I’m suckered in. Are sports ticket sites less dodgy than music ticket reseller markets? Golly, I hope so, as I’m posting this in the Geek Native spirit of “gamers don’t just care about their Level 13 Fighter”.
Geeks can and do, look good. More importantly, it’s about health, not appearance, and health doesn’t happen by magic. We do have to work at it, and lots of geeks do.
Firstly, here’s BuzzFeed from half-a-decade a go recognising just how hard the actors who play superheroes have to train. Hats off to cosplayers who train hard to have bodies like superheroes!
Using Live Rugby Tickets.co.uk‘s search trends mining, we see that Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Tom Holland as Spider-Man and Chris Evans as Captain America top the list.
As a result, weight lighting is the most common form of workout suggested. Needless to say, this is pretty closely related to muscle building.
|Rank||Actor||Avenger||Monthly Searches||Workout type|
|1||Scarlett Johansson||Black Widow||14,500,000||Gymnastics, Yoga, Olympic Weightlifting|
|2||Tom Holland||Spider-Man||12,900,000||Weightlifting, bodyweight movements|
|3||Chris Evans||Captain America||6,100,000||Weightlifting|
|4||Chris Hemsworth||Thor||6,100,000||Old School Bodybuilding|
|5||Robert Downey Jr||Iron Man||4,700,000||Weightlifting|
|6||Elizabeth Olsen||Scarlet Witch||4,400,000||Running, Dancing, Yoga|
|7||Jeremy Renner||Hawkeye||3,500,000||Weightlifting, High intensity Cardio, bodyweight movements|

Stefan Balkenende from the sports site noted;
In striving to keep fit, it is great that we can take inspiration, and feel motivated, from watching the characters that we all know and love. From what we’ve learnt here, the important takeaway is that there is no cheat to getting fit quickly, as all of the stars we’ve investigated stick to strict regimes fueled by good food, and that most importantly, consistency is key.”
Geek Native wants to know why Stefan just had to mention takeaway in his quote!
