If you have ever been amazed at the kind of transformation that Hollywood actors are able to put their bodies through (packing on pounds and pounds of lean muscle mass and then shredding faster than anyone would have thought possible) and wondered how they do it, you’re going to want to pay close attention to all of the inside information we are able to share with you below.
You see, Hollywood’s greatest actors aren’t exactly following the same kind of programs that most of us are when we visit the gym and knock around a little bit of weight.
No, they are on an entirely different level!
They let the professionals do all of the heavy lifting when it comes to nutrition and programming…
For starters, you have to remember that Hollywood actors have quite a bit banking on the way they look for in the upcoming film – and we don’t just mean as far as pressure is concerned.
The movie studios that employ them are literally banking on their body looking the way that the character is supposed to, and they spend millions and millions of dollars hiring these actors to get things right.
These studios almost always supply their actors with nutritionists, fitness trainers, and sports scientists that are responsible for doing all of the heavy lifting when it comes to the planning behind these transformations.
… But they aren’t shy about doing all of the heavy lifting when it comes to training!
At the same time, Hollywood’s actors aren’t at all shy about doing the heavy lifting when it comes to training – putting in a lot more effort than most “normal” people would ever be able to.
Because their entire career depends upon them looking like a superhero, these actors are going to spend hours and hours at the gym (sometimes eight or more hours a day) going through training protocols that people with more traditional jobs would never be able to pull off and still survive. Some even have to allot time to exercise on their rowing machines at home to ensure they’ll be able to achieve their desired physique in time.
This extra time in the gym translates to incredible results, and because they know EXACTLY what they need to do to get results (thanks to the professionals we mentioned above), things are a lot easier for them than they would be for most of us.
A lot of Hollywood’s leading men turn to chemical help when they need to bulk up or cut down in a hurry
At the end of the day, though, Hollywood is a bit of a superficial place – and actors aren’t at all above getting their hands on a little bit of chemical help in the form of steroids, human growth hormone, and other supplements to really put their bodies over the top.
Tom Hardy is one of the most recent leading men in Hollywood to talk about the transformation he went through during the Warrior and Batman filming sessions and how he came to rely on HGH and steroids to bulk up faster than he would have been able to naturally.
This may not be a direction that you’re interested in or willing to pursue, but it’s important to know that when there’s millions and millions of dollars on the line, many actors are willing to take the plunge.
