In the manner strength is meassured in tonns in Comics, i have a question.

Can a 2-tonner, by going to gym as a normal dude, and work out so that he maybe can Reach 2.200 tonns, or are their strenght fixed, can Blade if he just decided to do some Rocky balboa exersices, or just go to the gym, that he could go from 1 or 2 tonner to -2500 tonns or 3 tonns, will their muscle mass work similar to a non-superpowered being.

a human in real life in a year can reasnobly go from 50 kgs to 100kgs, a non fit person who goes to gym regularly 4 times a week in a year can probably gain 50 kgs in muscle strength (or more), in various exercieses. Like say Blade or Wolverine, did the normal squats, dead lifting, benchpress, shoulderpress, flyes, pull-ups, in one year, could they lift their category, from 1 tonn (or 2 tonn) to higher, 3-5 tonner.

hope the question is understood, im just questioning physicality and posiblitiys.

It's actually something that has happened. She Hulk, though by doing the same thing in her human form, was able to surpass her strength limit to a point she could compete with Hercules. It's a shame that detail seem to have been glossed over in recent times.

They would need weights heavy enough to necessitate their strength gains. They couldn't go to a normal gym and improve their strength, since the facilities wouldn't have the proper equipment for someone like Blade.

2 tonnes (for example) is a rough estimation, characters usually don't have hard limits and often lift more than they're supposedly capable of. As far as working out, some characters are assumed to be working out on a regular basis.

But how would someone like Peter Parker for example go about pushing his limits? Go to a construction yard and start lifting machinery. :P

Funnily enough, that's exactly what Eddie Brock did in the animated series to beat Spider-Man. Even after getting the symbiote, before ever confronting Peter, he spent a few weeks hitting the weights, and afterwards he was able to completely kick the crap out of Spider-Man.

I don't see why not. Surely there are exceptions, but so long as a characters biology follows the same basic structure as a normal human, then there's nothing stopping them from tearing apart their muscles and having them grow back stronger. I think the problem would be coming up with a workout routine that would actually be effective for characters that can lift several tons with ease. She-Hulk is the exception, as she was able to work out in her human form to increase the strength of her Hulk form, which was rather clever.

Seriously though, in a gym, no there aren't anything that heavy. Now, outside the gym there are things you can do if you are creative enough.

Spider-Man should bench press the gym.

He did that in the comics to. In the second scan he even comments that the symbiote enhances him geometrically.
