YouTube duo the Buff Dudes, a.k.a. brothers Hudson and Brandon White, are back with another action superhero-inspired workout video. They previously channeled the power of Grayskull in a He-Man inspried workout, an anime-inspired ‘One Man Punch’ workout, and even a Jackie Chan martial arts montage workout. Now, they’re emulating G.I. Joe’s Snake Eyes workout in the run up to the character’s origin story film, Snake Eyes, which releases in theaters on July 23.

“You want to know what it’s like to be a ninja? We’ll show you how,” says Hudson, before the brothers run through the strength and conditioning session.

Exercise 1: Banded Kettlebell Swings
3 sets of 15 reps

“Ninjas need a lot of power in their glutes and a lot of power in their legs. They run fast and they jump high, and they do a lot of kicking,” says Hudson. “We’re primarily working on the extension of your hips/glutes, really powering your glutes and hamstrings. And with the added resistance of the band, it makes it a little bit harder.”

Exercise 2: Single-Arm Landmine Shoulder Press
3 sets of 15 reps

The staggered stance works the core, and is very explosive in the shoulder.

“This is for the scene when the government agent is just about to be assassinated, and right when you think the sword is about to get him… Snake Eyes comes in with his,” says Hudson.

Exercise 3: Med Ball Slam
3 sets of 15 reps

“This creates a lot of power and strength in your hips, not only creating endurance, power and strength, it’s also going to improve your cardiovascular system because it’s a constant movement that uses a lot of energy,” says Brandon.

Brandon notes this move is for the end of the movie when Snake Eyes is bloody and battered, but he ends his enemy.

“This is the get your godd*mn aggression out exercise,” says Hudson. “You’re not going to have a lot of breath after this one.”

Exercise 4: Landmine 180s
3 sets of 15 reps

Besides your abs, this move engages the glutes and shoulders as well, twisting the torso back and forth with a wide stance.

“Push through the hips, keep the core tight,” says Hudson. “Now we’re just ragdolling Cobra Commander from side to side.”

Exercise 5: Reciprocal Incline Press
3 sets of 15 reps (each side)

This exercise focuses on the chest, as well as the anterior deltoid of the shoulder.

“It’s also a lot in the core. As you’re pushing, your abdominals has to contract to keep your torso flat against the bench,” says Brandon.

“You gotta look good in the costume, and Snake Eyes looks pretty damn good in his. So we’re just trying to catch up with him,” says Hudson.

Exercise 6: Banded Ninja Star Throws
3 sets of 15 reps (each side)

“This move is working on the triceps for throwing the ninja star at Cobra Commander,” says Hudson. “It’s a 90’s slow-mo rep.”
