Method Man Training Routine

Method Man used working out as an escape from gaming and other activities that were not progressing him forward. As a coping tool to deal with his insomnia, he took this as an opportunity to change his life, be productive, and get fit in the process.

Method Man just goes to show us that it’s never too late to get serious about the gym. After rapping and producing for Wu Tang for over a decade, he got serious about acting and had regular roles on HBO’s The Wire and The Deuce. If a man that busy can find time for the gym, so can you. There’s no such time as no time for the gym — there are only people who can’t make time.

Leg Day

For leg day, Method Man will start with stretching on the hip abductor machine. It is about 3 sets of a light warm-up to get his muscles primed and blood flowing. Later in the workout, there are two supersets, with increasing weight each set for the last superset (leg extensions and leg curls)

Method Man follows a certain number of macros consisting of his daily intake of protein, carbs, and fat with plenty of fiber as well. There are no food restrictions and no set time restrictions on when he can eat as well. A nice part of this plan for Method Man is that he can eat anything he likes as long as it fits into his macro count, including things like salt and sugar. He counts and weighs every gram to stay on track and loves to indulge in his favorite meal of Chik-Fil-A nuggets.


Method Man has been taking spirulina for about 5 years now and cell food for about 3 years. He has also taken creatine glycerol phosphate on and off which is the best creatine for him since it doesn’t cause bloating and keeps the least amount of water weight on, giving off a shredded appearance.

Spirulina is extremely high in nutrients and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well. It may improve strength and endurance since this fights oxidative stress and can push through fatigue (1,2).
