Actor Jason Statham is lean and cut. His muscles literally pop off the screen when he does fight scenes in movies like Transporter and Crank.
Will Smith went from 175 pounds to 220 for the movies “Ali”, “Hancock” and “I Am Legend”. These movie stars have different workouts but one thing their trainers all agree on is when it comes to packing on muscle, compound exercises give them the edge.
These guys prepare for their action roles with intense workouts that include muscle building routines like squats, dips, pull-ups and dead lifts. Compound exercises work the primary muscle to peak contraction but also work adjacent muscles as well. This allows you to work more weight and safely handle the workload.
For the ultimate in muscle blasting, work with compound exercises in supersets to blast two opposing body parts. For instance, work the shoulders, neck, trapezius, and anterior deltoids with a superset including upright rows. Combine it with split lunges to work the quadriceps, rectus femoris, thighs glutes, and hamstrings.
There are a wide variety of compound exercises that will make your body into a fat burning muscle factory. Work with opposing body parts when doing supersets. Supersets are advanced workouts in which you complete two intense exercises without benefit of rest in between.
Actors Vin Diesel, Matthew McConaughey and others swear by supersets and compound exercises to build muscle fast. Sure, they all have their favorites and have the time to work out; after all, that’s part of their job. They get to claim their gym membership as a business expense.
You can adopt many of their techniques to your lifestyle and build a superstar hard body in six to twelve weeks. It takes a lot of dedication and self discipline but it is possible. Are you up to the challenge?
