Have you ever wondered how celebrities and actors get in shape and stay in shape? How did Chris Pratt transform from “chubby sidekick” Andy Dwyer on NBC's hit sitcom Parks and Recreation to lean and mean Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy? What did Superman Henry Cavill eat, and how did he train to fill out his tights and cape? How did actor Christian Bale gain 100 pounds of superhero mass and muscle for his first Batman appearance in 2005?
Do these celebrities have advantages that you and I don’t?
What motivates them to hit the gym and stick to their diets? While they may have a few advantages like extra time and expensive personal trainers, they still use the same barbells, dumbbells, and equipment you and I use at the gym. They eat the same healthy and nutritious food that you and I can purchase in the local market. If you train and eat like a superhero, you too can build a superhero physique.
Here are just a few examples of how your favorite celebrities eat and train:
Henry Cavill started training for Superman in 2011 and trained 2.5 hours a day, 5-6 days per week for 10 long months adding 20 pounds of solid muscle. Cavill’s “super” workout includes massive amounts of protein combined with Crossfit style workouts using kettlebells, dumbbells, plyometrics, and bodyweight training.
Christian Bale added nearly 100 pounds of mass and muscle by following a high-calorie, high-protein diet combined with heavy-duty resistance training. Eggs provided most of his protein by the half dozen, cottage cheese, and protein shakes, which he ate every three hours. Bale focused on multijoint, compound movements combined with heavy Olympic-style power exercises, including cleans, snatches, and squat jumps.
Chris Hemsworth has portrayed Thor in eight Marvel Universe films dating back to 2011. Focus at first was on building his arms and shoulders as Thor always appears sleeveless. He quickly gained 20 pounds of solid muscle and began building the foundation for Thor’s now-famous physique. Hemsworth follows a two-part workout. The first part is a bodybuilding approach focused on heavyweights and low-rep movements designed to pack on mass. The second part involves full-body circuits designed to burn body fat while maintaining muscle.
Chris Pratt lost 60 pounds in six months while working out 5 days a week, 4 hours a day, and eating 4,000 low carb calories daily. Also, Pratt’s workout started with a traditional bodybuilding approach. Then after 8 weeks, the workout was adjusted to include serious cardio training to burn excess fat. Consequently, the goal was to pack on muscle while becoming lean and fit.
