Jason Statham Workout – How They Got THAT Body: Navy Seal Workout!

In the second installment of this new Motivating Max series, we’ll be looking at the exercise and nutrition practices of some of the world’s most prominent celebrities. This one is dedicated to the Jason Statham workout. Being plastered over a 100 foot celluloid screen is enough to make anyone work hard on their physique, so using information from celebrity personal trainers we have pieced together a revealing insight into “how they got that body!” We also ask what we can all gain from following in the celebrity example. To find out more about the exercises use the Exercise Inventory on the site with links to tutorials for each exercise . The focus on this occasion is movie tough guy Jason Statham, who is famed for performing his own stunts in high-octane flicks such as Crank, Death Race, and Snatch. Jason used this plan to sculpt off 17lb of fat in just 6 weeks! This programme was devised by former Navy Seal Logan Hood who beasted Statham for the entire course of the 6 weeks. Get ready for some pain. When a gritty bad-ass like Statham describes the sessions as “nauseating” and “nightmarish” you know it’s going to take some guts to follow in his footsteps- and some pretty big feet. Maybe the best way to get psyched up is to … yes you’ve guessed it … watch a Jason Statham movie. The schedule for this programme was 6 days per week 35 minutes per session. The philosophy: Statham appeared to adhere to two main principles: Never to embark on exactly the same workout twice. Record everything in meticulous detail. This is an approach we can all learn from, if we have proper measures of our performance then we can set valid goals and that is hugely motivating. Things like the recovery in between sets and even the way we...

Jessica Alba Workout – How They Got THAT Body: 40-minute Blitz!

Jessica Alba Workout – 40-minute blitz! In this new series, we’ll be looking at the exercise and nutrition practices of some of the world’s most prominent celebrities. Being plastered over a 100 foot celluloid screen is enough to make anyone work hard on their physique, so using information from celebrity personal trainers we have pieced together a revealing insight into “how they got that body!” We also ask what we can all gain from following in the celebrity example. To find out more about the exercises use the exercise inventory on the site with links to tutorials for each exercise. This workout was used by Alba as she recovered from pregnancy and returned quickly to her former weight and physique. She starts with a 10-minute cardio blast which includes a 2-minute warm up and finally a 2 minute warm down. This could take the form of a jog, then a hard mile’s run with a jog to finish. This initial burst will truly kick-start your metabolism and ensures that you reap full benefit from the remainder of the workout. A study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning showed that a brief blast of cardio improved subsequent weight-lifting performance. It’s a secret that many bodybuilders understand as well, often in “meathead” gyms the members won’t simply warm up gently on a piece of cardio equipment, they will blast away for 2-3 minutes to raise their pulse. For example rowing a power-packed 500m on the ergometer in less than two-minutes. This practice also puts you in the mood to attack the resistance part of the session. The next phase of the workout is a standard resistance training circuit. Jessica performs 3 sets of 20 repetitions with 3-lb dumbbells on each of the following exercises: Lateral raises (shoulders) Reverse flyes (rear shoulders) Alternating forward lunges combined with biceps curls (quads, hamstrings,...

Megan Fox Workout

If you want to have a super looking body without the beefy muscles, then look no further than Megan Fox.  I am intrigued at the methods other personal trainers use to assist their clients in getting the shape they desire.  What exactly entails a Megan Fox Workout?  A bit of research will show you that the main reason for her slim but feminine physique is down to a particular way of exercising, so that the muscles remain toned, not bulky.   Megan’s diet was Paleo, no surprises there, a diet of lean meat, fish, eggs, nuts and vegetables is very healthy and is based on the principles that we have a similar genetic structure as our ancestors from Paleolithic times. By leaving out the grains, starches and refined sugars, the body has more even insulin levels, which helps the body in utilising fats when working out. So the diet is Paleo, what other nuggets can we glean from her day to day routine?  If I were you, do not listen to her claims that apple cider vinegar cleans out the sugar from your system.  She may gain some benefit mentally by thinking she is cleansing her body internally, but it shouldn’t make a spot of difference to the effects of her sugar intake.  So what about the workout? This is were it gets interesting. She was reported to use Body Weight Interval training – check out one of my favourite Zuzana Body Weight Interval workouts, where she demonstrates her own take on this technique.  Using your own body weight lessens the effect of adding bulky muscle to areas that you want to look slim. Techniques include: Dynamic Push Ups Jump Squats Half Burpees One leg side jump lunge Pull Ups Step Jumps Butt Lift and Toe Touch Megan was supposed to avoid crunches to give her those perfect abs,...
