Generation Iron Dave Bautista Leg Day

The Destroyer’s ultimate leg training.

These days it looks like Mister Bautista is on the upswing. He’s no longer just a popular wrestling figure, but has made the transition over to the mainstream. First it was Guardians of the Galaxy and now he will be co-starring in the upcoming James Bond film SPECTRE. Dave is getting things done on the Hollywood front but despite his success, the talented former wrestler still remembers what got him to this point.

It’s Bautista’s massive and shredded form that has garnered him much of the attention and praise he’s been showered with. In the film industry it’s easy to be typecast into a role, especially for athletic figures. Nevertheless, Bautista’s performance in Guardians opened quite a few eyes and it looks like the former wrestler is going nowhere.

Despite his constantly improving acting abilities, Bautista still recalls what got him to this stage in his career. With such a well built and massive form, Bautista is hard pressed to keep up appearances and stay in the impeccable shape that has garnered him fans the world over. We’ve already touched on how the actor keeps his upper body strong and defined. But building up the perfect body is all about having symmetry – whether it’s your left or right sides or if it’s your upper or lower body. Check out this list of exercises Bautista uses to thrash his legs into tremendous shape.


Standing Calf Raises 4 sets, 10-15 reps
Seated Calf Raises 4 sets, 10-15 reps
Standing Leg Curls 4 sets, 10-15 reps
Seated Leg Curls 4 sets, 10-15 reps
