Being a superhero isn’t easy.

And we don’t mean the moral quandaries they face. We mean the grueling, physical exhaustion that comes with kicking butt on a daily basis.

To get a feel for exactly how tough the life of a superhero is, TVGuide.com visited the Vancouver set of CW’s Arrow, where stunt coordinator James Bamford showed us a few moves.

Fortunately, Bamford didn’t subject us to the salmon ladder, which star Stephen Amell famously does himself. Instead, he showed us how he trains Amell using the Wing Chun dummy, which helps prepare you for the unpredictability of an opponent.

Arrow returns Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 8/7c on The CW.
