Captain America Barbell Plates: Super Soldier Serum Not included

The truth is, Captain America aka Steve Rogers is not any different from Tony Stark. While Tony Stark propels himself to superhero status with advanced exoskeleton suits, our dear patriotic Captain was no more than a scrawny kid who got pumped with experimental super solider serum that turns him into a person with superhuman strength. So in a way, he’s like Tony: a cheat. The only difference is, he can’t simply shed his ‘suit’. Anywho, that’s sci-fi fantasy and all fitness nuts know that there’s no super soldier serum, nor are there any shortcut to bulging muscles and super strength. It takes hard work, but as consolation, you can at least work your way, in a traditional manner, with the soon-to-be-released Hero Elite Series Captain America Barbell Plates by fitness equipment maker, Onnit Labs (officially, ‘The Onnit/Marvel Hero Elite Series of Fitness Equipment‘).
