With Avengers: Endgame in cinemas the most epic superhero saga has come to an end. Since the first Avengers movie in 2012 the world has been buzzing about the star-studded band of superheroes fighting their epic battles. We all knew most of the Avengers already from their own movies (three times Iron Man, three times Thor, and many, MANY more), but there was never a movie about the biggest badass of them all: Thanos.
The purple titan didn’t get much screen time, and it wasn’t till Avengers: Infinity War that we really got to know Thanos for the ultimate supervillain he is. The massive titan set out to destroy half of the entire universe, but who you still grow to like. By the end of Infinity War, you almost feel sorry for the guy that he must kill everybody. He’s just trying to do the right thing.
Thanos is the shit; but did you know he’s a force to be reckoned with in real life as well?
Behind that purple exterior is actor Josh Brolin. Does that ring a bell? Maybe because that’s the same actor who plays another famous villain: Cable, the bad guy in another hero super movie: Deadpool 2.
To prepare for his roles the actor had to seriously step up his game in the gym and bulk the f*ck up; because you can’t try to kick Ryan Reynold’s annoying joking ass while simultaneously gathering infinity stones to wipe out entire planets, without being absolutely RIPPED. You have to be 100% committed.
It’s a tough job being Josh Brolin.
Train to be a Titan
To be the best villain he could possibly be, Brolin committed himself to a strict diet and he hired Justin Lovato as his personal trainer to get into shape before taking stage. We had a look at his routine so you can start exercising like a true Titan. You’ll be able to seriously increase your max rep after this workout.
One might say it’ll be as easy as snapping your fingers.
First, he seriously changed his diet. The guy didn’t just stop eating fast food, he completely transformed his food intake to make sure he is doing everything he can to get in shape. He hasn’t fully disclosed his diet, but he did say the following:
Totally clean: no sugar, no breads, no pastas, no drugs, none of it. Fish, rice, eggs, veggies, water.
What a BEAST! And no drugs involved bro; just good diet choices and a few natural supplements, that’s the way to go!
But what about the workout? Well, I can tell you, it’s not for the weak: he trained 6 days a week, 2 sessions per day!
Here’s an overview of an example week of his routine.
Session 1 – Mobility and Circuit Training
First, he starts with some mobility training exercises:
Next, it’s time for the conditioning circuit. Are you starting to sweat yet? This circuit you gotta do 5 times in a row, so be ready for some pain:
Session 2: The Bodybuilding Back Workout
Josh would do this workout session about 5 hours later than the first session, making sure his body has a bit of time to rest from the first session. Let’s go:
That’s one KILLER workout routine… I can imagine why the man doesn’t always like his personal trainer
