On the screen, 36-year-old Taylor Kitsch can defend himself no worse than the notorious Diesel. Remember how he famously dealt with Martian monsters in the Disney thriller John Carter?
A muscular body in a loincloth, fiery speeches, all other matters… And in the role of Alex Hopper from the Sea Battle he was a real hero – sharp as a razor, his look promised to the viewer that this time the aliens would not be able to get Earth.
In life, Taylor Kitsch doesn’t leg behind his characters. To begin with, let’s say that the actor does not train in expensive fitness clubs for Californian celebrities, but in the smelly boxing ones.
Along with the role in John Carter Kitsch got the task: to get to an ideal physical form, but at the same time not to lose the normal human form. Hypertrophy of his muscles was strictly forbidden, because according to the script the hero of the film is a veteran of the Civil War between the North and South of the USA, and these guys did not look like Schwarzenegger.
To achieve this goal, Kitsch trained in anaerobic regime with small weights, doing many repetitions and resting between the sets developing, first of all, strength and endurance.
He, in general, is a supporter of variability in the gym. Muscles need to be loaded in different ways, then the maximum number of muscle fibers is involved into the work.
Not everyone knows, but Taylor Kitsch is a certified fitness trainer. Training is training, but for gaining a normal body shape it is important to eat properly.
No problem – just do not laugh, but Kitsch is also a certified nutritionist.
Carbohydrates in the diet of the actor are present only in the morning and only useful – slow ones. Another principle of Kitsch: there can’t be too much protein in men’s diet – after all, it serves as a building material for muscles, and its surpluses, although they turn into calories, they are split at high energy costs.
However, Taylor Kitsch is not a bore if it comes to food. If for the sake of role he needs to sacrifice the rules that the professors punctured him, Taylor will do it without hesitation.
For the role in The Bangbang Club the actor had to lose 16 kg in just two months.
He almost completely ruled out all the protein from the diet, fruit for breakfast, chicken broth for lunch, broccoli for dinner.
In this case, Taylor Kitsch used to run from 8 to 23 km per day. Shortly before filming, he got to see a doctor, so he gave gave him a scandal – the actor had to promise to eat at least 2-3 eggs a day.
You, probably, already realized that our hero is a stubborn guy.
Taylor Kitsch starts training early in the morning – just after brushing his teeth. After completing the planned series of exercises, the actor eats a large apple to replenish carbohydrates, multivitamins and drinks a liter of water. After that, he starts his usual busy day.
