Celebrity Workouts – If They Can Do It So Can We, Right?
I lost count how many times people have come to me saying they want to have a body like Courtney Reagan, Maria Menounos, Samantha Ponder, The Rock, Brad Pitt, etc. You get the idea. What most people don’t realize is most of the time these people don’t look that way all the time. And not just that, when they get hired to do a movie or a shoot they have set time and days for the gym, nutrition and they hire personal trainers. This is not meant to bring you down. I simply want you to understand that when you make that choice to have a healthy and fit lifestyle it’s for all the right reasons. You know what you up against and that’s time and your own mind!
Now with that being said, can you achieve a great looking body doing the type of workouts these actors do for the movie roll?
I really think YES you can. You just have to remember that money is no option with them. They hire and buy the best. So, keep that in mind when you decide to follow the workout plan you found in Muscle n Fitness by a Pro Body Builder!
What Did Aquaman Do For A Workout?
Bench Press Triset (5 rounds)
Incline bench press: Lie on an incline bench, with a barbell overhead, your arms about shoulder-width apart. The bar should be about 70% of your one-rep max. Lower the bar to your chest, then lift it back up. That’s 1 rep; do 6.
Standing dumbbell press: Stand holding two dumbbells at your shoulders. Tighten your core and press the dumbbells overhead, then lower them back to shoulder height. That’s 1 rep; do 12. Use a weight heavy enough to challenge you by the 8th rep.
Push-up: You know this one: Start in a high plank position, then keep your core tight as you bend your arms to lower your chest nearly to the ground. Return to high plank position. Do 24 reps. Too easy? Do the push-ups with your arms on rings instead.
Cable Crossover: 6-12-18 Chest Fly Drop Set
For each set, do 6 reps at a heavy weight, the immediately lower the weight and do 12 reps. Immediately lower the weight again, then do 18 reps. That’s 1 full drop set. Do two sets each of high-angle cable flies, mid-angle cable flies and low-angle cable flies. Rest as needed between sets.
THE LEG AQUA-PLAN
Sled/Quad Extension Triset
Do each move in this sequence back-to-back-to-back. Rest 2-3 minutes between each round. Do 5 rounds. Add one plate to the sled for each set.
20-meter sled push: Load a sled with two 45-pound plates. Position yourself behind the sled, grasping its tallest handles with your hands. Tighten your core, brace your shoulders and push the sled forward.
20-meter sled pull: Using rings or handles attached to the sled with a rope, drag the sled in reverse (your back faces the direction of travel). Keep your chest up, brace your core, sit back and focus on pushing with your quads.
Seated quad extension 6-12-18 drop set
Set up quad extension machine with a weight that will be challenging for 6 reps. Do all 6, then reduce the weight and do 12 reps. Reduce it one more time, then do 18 reps.
Lunge/Split Squat Superset (5 rounds)
Dumbbell walking lunge. Hold a pair of 40- or 50-pound dumbbells at your sides. Brace your core and, keeping your chest up, do walking lunges forward for 40 meters.
Bodyweight Bulgarian split squat: Stand with your dominant foot on a box or bench, shoelaces facing down on the bench, your non-dominant leg 3 or 4 feet in front of that. Bend with your non-dominant knee to lower your torso until your thigh is parallel with the ground. Return to a standing position. That’s 1 rep. Do 10, then lower into the bottom of a split squat and hold the position for 10 seconds. Return to starting position and repeat with your dominant leg in front.
