A few of my friends on facebook have posted a question like this: “How can I get an action hero body?”
Now, Hollywood action stars have a few advantages: they all have a personal trainer, they can get someone to cook healthy meals for them, and they have lighting technicians making sure they always look their best.
But you can totally steal their workout and do it on your own.
Have you seen “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” on TV? I’ve caught a few episodes – pretty cool.
And the stars definitely have that “action hero” look:
Here’s a video of the Spartacus stars working out:
(Don’t copy their kettlebell form! Everything else is all good )
The Spartacus workout above was written by Rachel Cosgrove, owner of Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, CA.
Here’s the complete program:
60 seconds work / 15 seconds rest
1. Goblet Squat
2. Mountain Climber
3. One Arm Dumbbell Swing
5. Jump Lunges
6. Dumbbell Bent Over Row
7. Dumbbell Side Lunge and Touch
8. Dumbbell Renegade Row
9. Dumbbell Lunge with Rotation
10. Dumbbell Push Press
Total Time: 12:30.
Rest 2 minutes and repeat.
Total Work Time: 27 minutes!
After trying one of my bootcamp workouts, you’ll know that a circuit like this are no joke.
By working every muscle in your body, you not only strengthen and shape, you get a whole body cardiovascular workout… at the same time!
If your idea of “cardio” is running on a treadmill or playing on an elliptical machine, you’ll find that a workout like this is really fun, really intense, and more effective at building an Action Hero Body than anything else.
Talk to you soon,
