Jason Statham’s workout or training regimen


jason-statham-suit-fightWith the movies that he played in such as Transporter 1, 2, 3 , Death Race, Crank 1, 2, Jason needed to look strong and pumped up.
He`s lucky for the fact that his swimming is a good cardio 🙂 (His passion was diving — in particular, he finished 12th in the World Championships in 1992. He was also a member of Britain’s National Diving Squad for twelve years.)

Day 1

First he`s warming up rowing10 minutes on the rowing machine at a pace that’s less than 20 strokes per minute.
But you can do this:Use a “pyramid repetition structure” to the workout.In your first round through the circuit, do one repetition of each movement. In each subsequent round, perform an additional rep. So you’ll do two reps of each exercise in round two, three reps in round three, and so on. Once you’ve completed five rounds, continue on, but reduce the reps you complete each round by one. So you’ll do four reps in round six, three reps in round seven, and so on, until you’ve worked your way back down to one rep. At this point, your warm-up is complete.
1. Push ups
2. Ring chin ups
These are classic chin ups, but Jason uses gymnastic rings instead of the bar, and performs each rep as quickly as possible while maintaining control and a full range of motion.
3. Bodyweight Squats
His Workout involves just one exercise, the deadlift. Jason starts with a light weight – about 35 per cent of the amount of his 1RM – and then slowly starts adding weight and reducing reps. As the weight becomes closer to his 1RM – which, for Jason, is more than twice his bodyweight – his rest between sets increases to three minutes. This allows for almost complete recovery between lifts. Remember, these are the weights that Jason Statham uses. They should be determined based on individual ability.

Reps x weight x rest
10 x 60kg – 1 minute
5 x 85kg – 2 minutes
3 x100kg – 3 minutes
2 x 130kg – 3 minutes
1 x 150kg – 3 minutes
1 x 155kg – 3 minutes
1 x 160kg – 3 minutes
1 x 162.5kg – 3 minutes
1 x 165kg – 3 minutes

Cool down: 10 minutes on the trampoline. Jason Statham uses a full-size gymnastic trampoline for 10 minutes of freestyle aerial work. Jason has an Olympic diving background, so he’s doing fairly advanced movements here. In addition to fine tuning motor skills, the trampoline is supposed to be good for your lymphatic system and flushing toxins from your cells.

Day 2
Functional Circuit
This workout is designed to be metabolically demanding to increase lean muscle gaining without the using of steroids, training the entire body with exercises that work multiple muscle groups.

Do your warm up with these four exercises as a circuit. For each exercise, you’ll hold a specific position for 30 seconds, then have 10 seconds to change stations, before starting the next exercise. Do four rounds, do you understand??!!!.
1. Ring Dip Hold
Hold yourself in the top position of a dip for the prescribed amount of time. Like the ring chin up, Jason performs this using gymnast rings instead of a dip station with parallel bars.
2. Kettlebell Farmer Hold
Grab a pair of heavy kettlebells (dumbbells will work in a pinch) and let them hang at arm’s length at your sides.
3. L-sit on Parallettes or Dip Bars
Jason Statham uses parallettes to perform this exercise, but the L-sit can also be done on a dip station that has parallel bars.
4. Bodyweight Squat Hold
Lower yourself to the bottom position of a squat with your thighs parallel to the ground and hold that position till you feel a rush through your whole body.

His workout is called “Big Five 55 Workout”.Here, Jason performs a circuit of five exercises, which he does a total of 10 times.
There is no prescribed rest and ideally you move continuously from one exercise to the next while keeping the sets unbroken. Focus on going as fast as possible while maintaining form, full range of motion and control. The weights should be light enough to allow this.You can run the stopwatch and race through this workout, but for better results and quality movement you should simply try to keep the momentum and flow through the exercises continuous. Jason starts with 10 reps of each movement, and each time through, reduces the reps by one. So he does 10 reps of all exercises in the first round, nine in the second, eight in the third, and so on, until he’s doing just one rep in each set. The result is that he completes a total of 55 reps of each exercise. Again, the weights below are the amount Jason Statham used in this particular week.

1. Front Squat (45kg)
2. Chin ups
3. Decline Parrallette Push ups
4. Power Cleans
5. Knees to Elbows
Hanging from a chin up bar or from the rings at the half-cocked positon (elbows at a right angle), raise your knees until they touch your elbows. Lower them back down in one controlled movement so you don’t swing.

Day 3
Warm up as you like, to mimic Jason’s interval workout, you’ll do six intervals of 500m.

Between each 500m sprint engage in active rest for three minutes.For this, you can get off the rower and grab a drink of water, but you must continue moving around.
Here’s a look at Jason’s times for reference:
Sprint 1: 1:40.1
Sprint 2: 1:39.7
Sprint 3: 1:43.9
Sprint 4: 1:41.6
Sprint 5: 1:38.7
Sprint 6: 1:50.3

Day 4

Set Work

Here, Jason focuses on front squats, one of the best strengthening and total body conditioning exercises there is. For warming up Jason does 20 reps of bodyweight squats before moving on to the primary portion of the workout.
He does five sets of five reps of the front squat. In this workout, Jason used a load that was 105 per cent of his bodyweight.
Jason Statham’s Front Squat Workout (Reps x weight x rest)
5 x 80kg – 90 seconds
5 x 80kg – 90 seconds
5 x 80kg – 90 seconds
5 x 80kg – 90 seconds
5 x 80kg – 90 seconds
For his cool down Jason does 200 reps of the push up, but he performs this workout using a ladder routine. “We do this as partnered ladders of 1-5, so 13 ladders plus an extra 5 reps at the end. I do a push-up, he does a push-up, I do two, he does two, I do three, he does three, I do four, he does four, I do five, he does five. We’ve now each done 15 push-ups and we immediately repeat the process starting at one again.”jason-statham-workout

Day 5
Cumulative Movements
This workout is designed to be metabolically demanding, training the entire body with exercises that work multiple muscle groups. The Cumulative Movement workout consists of only one trip through, as opposed to a circuit workout in which you repeatedly cycle back through the same movements.
The warm out consists in The Bear Crawl and Crab Walk.
Alternate between the bear crawl for a distance of 15m and the crab walk for 15m. Repeat until you’ve done five 15m increments of each.
The workout consists in one round through a series of exercises.Do one set of each movement, completing all of the prescribed number of reps before moving on to the next exercise. Perform each exercise as quickly as possible while maintaining proper form and full range of motion. The stopwatch is running on this one, so try to get through it as quickly as possible by minimising rest.

Jason Statham’s Circuit Workout (Exercise x Reps x Weight)
7m Fat Rope Climbs x 5 x Body
Front Squats x 5 x 85kg
Ball Slams x 5 x 12.5kg
15m Rope Pulls x 10 x 40kg
Bench Press x 10 x 80kg
Ball Slams x 10 x 12.5kg
Chin ups x 15 x Body
Dips x 15 x Body
Ball Slams x 15 x 10kg
Resisted Fat Rope Pulls x 20 (no weights)
Smashes x 20 (no weights)

Jason’s Time: 23:53

Day 6
Contextual Effort

This can be any activity or sport that you enjoy doing. If this is of significant duration and intensity it should be considered as part of your training. I know you will like Killer Elite where Jason Statham is in tip top shape with his sculpted physique resulted from a great workout!
