Having played a major role in the film Hercules: The beginning of a legend, Kellan Lutz finally entered the ranks of Hollywood actors of “A” category.
We can not say anything distinct about the actor Kellan’s talent, but the body he has like the ancient demigod. Let’s see what efforts such body cost to the Twilight actor .
These 185 cm of pure protein may be familiar to you also by the series Generation Kill (2008).
If you over train with the weight in the gym, says Kellan, the punishment will be memorable.
Such state is known to every man who at least once in his life was climbing the stairs on all fours, because his legs after the exercises did not obey.
Lutz gained form for Hercules as follows: a small load, but a lot of repetition.
Before, he used to compete at 55 kg on biceps three times and thought that this was enough. The next day, back hurt badly. Training with weights up to 30% of your maximum for one repetition gives more muscle growth than using a weight of 90%and it’s proved fact.
So, the actor just made repetitions until the muscles had a sense of the incredible pump and total oppression. Because of this, Kellan immediately feel larger, and the next day, the muscles didn’t hurt so much.
On the set of War of the Gods, each actor had a personal nutritionist. These people ran after the actors with pots: eat some almond nuts now, and an hour later – spinach.
All this is true in Hollywood. However, preparing for the Hercules, Lutz took the decision himself.
And he chose the simplified paleodiet – a lot of protein and no grain. This diet helps to stabilize blood sugar level and reduces the percentage of fat in the body without turing one into an irritable teenager.
And in restaurants Lutz pointedly ignored the menu to not to succumb to temptation: he just asked if they could cook salmon with avocado and lettuce.
On set, Lutz did not worry about the cubes on his belly.
Adversity that demigod experienced making his way through the ranks of the mythical enemies was enough to maintain the shape.
Jumping on a horse standing in the stirrups – it is a good load for the press, but still, the actor needed to brandish a sword that strengthened the muscles of the arms and corpus.
In your gym there is hardly any horses, but you realized that unreal cubes are produced when your body is unstable and active.
Do the bar with your feet in the straps TRX (this will be your “horse”) to deny support of the lower part of the body. Also,the actor tried the swings with weights (this is his “sword”) instead of the usual bench – press with dumbbells.
The costume is not required, but it helps.
Kellan went through a total body scan, and it turned out that he has massive bones. The actor adores swimming, but his bones always tend him to the bottom. Because of this, Lutz made a conclusion that to achieve good results one should find the activity that appeals to him.
If he doesn’t feel like running – he doesn’t run. Instead, he does any other activity that is more productive and effective.
