Hulk Hogan workout set

Matt over at X-Entertainment has done an article on the Hulk Hogan “Hulkamania workout set.

And here is a video clip of the commercial itself.

Hey; who better to sell the Hulk Hogan workout set than Paul Orndorff? Erm, wait…

Now that you know what it is and what’s in it, I have something really interesting to show you!

This is the audio from the motivational cassette that came with the workout set! Doesn’t it make you just want to hit the gym and start pumping iron?

    I actually got this for Christmas in 1987. I had started watching wrestling earlier that year after I turned 11. It was within a month or so before the MegaPowers formed. Anyway, I never really got into the workout thing too much but I wore the headband everywhere and I memorized the music. Years later, when The Wrestling Album was released on CD (I never was able to find it on cassette). I was happily amused to find the music again–as Hogan’s original theme before he jacked “real American” from Windham and Rotundo.

    I had this! I lost everything in short order, except the dumbells, which stuck around for a while.

    Interestingly enough (to me), I believe the voice announcing Hulk on the tape, is none other than Gary Michael Cappetta.

  3. Paul says:

    I listened to bits and pieces of that workout tape, and at times the music sounds like a musak rendition of Gilmour-led Pink Floyd.

    Also, I admit that I feel like hanging and banging and calling my spot partner daddy now.

    LJN…truly the mark of quality. (Least most of their non-video game stuff didn’t suck the big one.)

    Poor Children who got this… Were the hell did they find this Music? Anyone remember the Movie Perfect?

  6. Morondo the Incredible says:

    I imediatley looked on Ebay to see if there was complete Huk Workout set. There was! 160.00 for the full set.

    Cool that Orndorff got to be in a commercial, though, instead of Hogan taking the spot, even if it was his workout set.

    23:32 lol

  9. Drew says:

    I don’t notice a syringe in the picture. Or is that only in the advanced set?

  10. Andy says:

    I had it….still have one dumbell….i searched for years to find this audio, it’s mint. I finally got it last year, and now it’s on my Ipod. A great combination of 80’s styles!

  11. Mortuary Matt says:

    So that is where the headband that I got in a bagful of happy meal toys at a yard sale came from. Always wondered. To this day it still is on a talking ET doll I have.

  12. Christopher Allan says:

    That’s some high quality 80’s porno music right there. Wait, what? That’s not what this is? Could’ve fooled me.

  13. Alexandru says:

    Steroid pills and/or syringe not included.

  14. Terrence says:

    That music has Frank Stallone written all over it. That man is musical genius!
