The workout begins with cable flyes and Ritchson does not stop after. He goes right into shoulder presses using cables.

“Go right into shoulder press (with some Arnold’s mixed in).

I was squeezing this in before work. Clothes had to come off so I wanted to hit the whole body.”

The quick session continued with arms before squeezing in legs.

“Pretty gassed by this point but can’t leave before hitting the legs.”

Alan Ritchson Talks Diet & Exercise Plan

Alan Ritchson got up to 235 pounds for this role. He previously discussed how he went above and beyond with weight training and that is something he does not usually do because he “gets big so quick”, if only we had that same problem! Outside of the gym, it was all about making sure his diet plan was strict.

“THE REAL REQUIREMENT IS YOU NEED TO GET THE CALORIES, PROTEINS, AND MACROS, SO IT WAS A CONVEYER BELT OF FOOD. IT’S A FULL-TIME JOB TO GET 4,500 CARLOEIS AND 300 GRAMS OF PROTEIN IN YOUR BODY. I WAS LUCKY THAT I HAD HELP WITH THAT.”

Wrap Up
