If you’ve seen movie trailers recently, it’ll come as no surprise that there are a ton of action and superhero movies coming out this Summer. Here are the stars that put in the most work to look good on the silver screen in 2016.
Yes, that John Krasinski. He’s come a long way from Jim Halpert on “The Office.” For his role in the film “13 Hours” about the events in Benghazi, he enlisted the help of his trainer Jason Walsh, the owner of Rise Health in West Hollywood. Over the course of four months, he went from “boy next door” to “guy you wouldn’t want to mess with.”
He even appeared on the cover of the January 2016 issue of Men’s Health showing off his new look.
There’s a reason this British actor was a strong contender for the next James Bond. Even though he’s not getting the part, he’s got the physique. He regularly does boxing exercises and cross-fit to maintain his ripped look. Elba says that his ultimate goal is to always feel “fight ready,” like he could always step into the ring and go for five rounds.
After the success of the Avengers movies and with the release of Captain America: Civil War this Summer, Evans had to maintain his already ripped physique to continue his most popular role.
“The preparation for Captain America was really about me bulking up looks wise,” said Evans. He added that it involved a lot of intense weight training to pack on mass. Like most bulking plans, his regimen was based on heavy weight/low-rep sets of compound lifts like squats, shoulder presses, deadlifts, incline bench presses, chin-ups, and weighted dips.
While he was no slouch in movies like “Van Wilder,” Ryan Reynolds’s role in Deadpool required this hard-working actor/dad to train like never before. Over the course of three months, six workouts a week, and a 3,200 calorie-a-day diet, Reynolds was able to put on 25 pounds of muscle.
