Before his role in Daredevil Charlie Cox couldn’t impress the women’s audience with any kind of lean physique. Nevertheless, it had changed after he joined the cast of the movie.
To get into a great shape and to fit the role, the actor had to undergo a serious training process along with sticking to specific nutrition. So, let’s have a look on what steps helped Charlie change his body.
Firstly, gym made a great contribution. To gain Superhero look, the actor put on 15 pounds of pure muscle mass. It’s about 7 kilos. He confessed that it was not that easy, but to achieve the result he had to train each body part twice a week along with overall body training. Besides, Charlie could not forget about cardio training. Running made his body lean and dried it a bit. Due to cardio load his pumped muscles became visible through the skin.
The aim was not to become a superhero consisting exclusively of muscles, but to get lean and toned body. That’s why the first month or two were the hardest, as it was time when the hardest load was put. After that, when some result was already achieved, the point was to maintain it.
In the first season we saw that Charlie Cox looked skinnier than he had to. Still, he admits he had enough food. Mostly, it consisted of proteins and “good” carbohydrates. Of course, vegetables and fruit that played great role, especially in the period of intensive training.
During the second season the actor didn’t quit training, but at that period it was important to maintain the shape and not to lose weight and muscles. The nutrition was pretty balanced, so Charlie didn’t feel hungry or exhausted. Now, he realizes that proper eating influences not only health, but also appearance, so he tries his best to not to waste the profit he gained from filming.
