The Marvel Cinematic Universe changed Chris Hemsworth’s fortunes. Gone are the days when the Aussie idol was considered your regular chocolate boy. Since taking over the thor mantle, Hemsworth’s transformation as an actor has been immense.
But something even more amazing was Chris’ physical transformation. Naturally endowed with a tall and broad physique, the Thor the star was much leaner before lifting Mjolnir.
In fact, he left people so impressed with his physique that the God of Thunder inadvertently turned into the God of Fitness as well. Chris Hemsworth has legions of fans who adore his fitness tips and tricks to enhance their personal fitness regimes.
For Thor: Love and Thunder Hemsworth is at his best, leaving his fans to collect their jaws on their floor. But how does he do it? What is her fitness routine?
Let’s find out.
Cardio for definition
You might think it’s a joke, but cardio actually helps Chris’ muscles look more impressive, which is why the actor does it as part of his fitness routine. He alternates between a quick dash on a treadmill or an intense assault bike session, though he is reported to be a fan of the latter.
Weightlifting for Serious Gains
Chris Hemsworth’s trainer, Luke Zocchi, has shared that strength training is obviously an integral part of the Marvel star’s fitness routine, often hitting the gym five times a week. He divides his workouts into pushing and pulling days, while also including the different parts of the body, namely the arms, chest, shoulders, legs and core. According to Zocchi, bodyweight circuits and iron circuits are also included in Hemsworth’s fitness routine.
Combat sports and martial arts
Hemsworth is noted to have added combat sports and martial arts to his fitness regimen, while mixing things up and keeping things tough for the star. His favorite martial art is Muay Thai, a form of martial art and combat sport originating in Thailand.
Fueled by a high protein diet
As we all know, diet is probably the most crucial part of fitness routine. No matter how many hours you put in the gym if your diet is lacking, you won’t get the results you hope for. Aware of this, Hemsworth is particularly careful about what he puts into his body, making sure he eats protein-rich meals six to eight times a day. Although he relies primarily on animal-based protein, such as chicken breast, eggs, steak, and fish, Hemsworth also adds green vegetables, brown rice, and cheese to his diet.
More importantly, he allows himself cheat days from time to time, where he eats pizza, and even ice cream and chocolates. So, don’t forget to let yourself go, it’s advised by the god of thunder.
That doesn’t mean Chris doesn’t have cheat days. He does and that includes some ice cream and chocolate!
