Jason Statham – Workout Regime

496
Having a background of British Olympic diving makes Jason Statham, a huge fan of Gymnastics and Plyometrics. With an exciting mix and match of these with little weights, he is able to make his workout regime fun and functional the same time.He believes in having a practical strength rather than just bulking up. To do that he works to add size, increase definition and improve his overall physical ability with UFC style Mixed Martial Arts and Shadow Boxing. And we as fans, know it works wonders from his shredded look in movies like The Expendables and Transporter series.

Jason Stathom’s fitness mantra :

Train less, but train HARD !!

Key Takeaways: 

  • Journal everything that you gulp in, including water
  • Never repeat a  workout in a week
  • Eat intelligent (no sugar, no refined flour)
  • Hone a skill to add to workout and fun
  • Always take an ‘active’ rest between sets
  • Skip circuit training if what you want is a body like him (you’re not gonna fight 10 men at once or chase fast cars like him)

Day 6 : Contextual Effort

Any activity or sport you enjoy doing and can continuously do for more than an hour. For example, Jason Statham chose trail running in Hollywood mountains for about 73 minutes.

Day 7 : Rest

Diet of the Transporter

He has a typical diet of zero sugars, lean meat, fish and fruits but completely devoid of breads and pasta. He even avoids fruit juices and alcohol, for the fear of consuming empty calories. Although like a typical British, he finds staying away from beer on weekends difficult. So, indulges sometimes only to make up for it later through workout.

The only sweet he takes in is through his evening dessert made of yogurt and fresh fruits. However, he makes it a point to limit his food to 2000 calories each day.

My Advice : You can choose to skip the circuit training and interval exercises if all that you want is a lean and strong look like him. I am suggesting that because the actor needs to perform dangerous stunts, not an average Joe has to. What fans want is just the Badass look.
