Jason Statham's Secrets to Getting Ripped! By Jonas Forsberg
I had a Jason Statham marathon the other day, watching movies such as Transporter 1-2, Crank, and War.
And I mean you cannot ignore thinking about how the hell he got that ripped? The guy is the definition of rock-solid. I do not know about you, but I would not want to meet him in a dark alley in the middle of the night!
After I went through the movies, I did a search to find out what his secrets to becoming lean were. I found several different sources, while some were a bit different from the other, but there were some common factors in all of the sources.
1. Never Repeat!
Jason Statham never did the exact same workout twice, meaning the structure of his workouts was all created differently. Of course, he will do the same exercises several times through the program, but never in the same order and with the same combination as a previous workout.
2. Record Everything!
This one refers to not only his workouts, but also his nutrition. Everything he put in his mouth and every single detail about his workouts where written down in his notebook.
No matter if you are a hardcore athlete, power lifter or looking to lose fat, taking notes and recording everything is essential!
3. Circuit and Interval Training.
He used some different phases and types of training in his schedule. Except for his maximum strength type of training, he did loads of circuit training variations and interval training.
That way, he kept all of his workouts intense and short. Jason never worked out in the gym for longer than 35 min per session.
4. Compound Movements
Jason did lots of squats, dead lifts, and bench presses. Except for these compound movements, he did exercises such as Pullups, Hanging Knee Raises, and Burpees!
Basically, he mixed a lot of barbell, kettlebell, dumbbell type of exercises together with lots of bodyweight training. With this being said, no matter what your goal is, to truly get the body of your dreams, you really should incorporate both free weight training together with bodyweight training into your schedule! Focusing on just one of these will not get you truly strong and ripped!
5. No refined sugar
Jason stayed away from food such as pasta, bread, fruit juice, sweets, candy, and definitely booze.
He aimed for food sources such as chicken, fish, beef, egg, vegetables, protein shakes, nuts, etc.
Follow all of these 5 steps and you will be on your way to a more ripped and well-defined body!
