Diesel Furious Workout!
Star of the multimillion dollar hit film series, The Fast and The Furious, Vin Diesel is an actor that commands the screen. In the vain of action stars like Arnold Schwarzengger and Sylvester Stallone, Vin Diesel has made a name for himself with not only his many film roles but his powerful physique as well.
In order to match the physical presence of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious series, Vin had to bulk up like never before. The Rock is a man built up to massive proportions, heavily muscled and larger than life himself. Vin had to bulk up to make their onscreen tussle believable. The trailer for Furious 7 was released on November 1 and as always Vin Diesel was in top form. Check out some of Vin’s workout routines that kept him ready for his most popular role.
