In my personal opinion, Gerard Butler is a great scottish actor with charm and a funny person.. After filming the movie “300″, Gerard got famous i might say for his shredded body with well defined muscles (great physique), and now recently after filming “The Bounty Hunter” he also got a new girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston. I think they look nice together but Gerard Butler is picky with his girls and now he was seen with a french 29 year old lady named Laurie Chloewa.
All the muscles you see on Gerard Butler`s body are gained with hard work and dedication. As Gerard says in an interview for Men`s Health in the next video, it`s sad that he only trained for roles, for example in the movie “300″ he combined weights with circuit training and Gerard really likes the rowing machine.
Gerard Butler also said:” When you combine weights with circuit training it`s a great way of building muscles but in a leaner way and also burning fat because you`re doing a lot of cardio as well, because you`re moving so fast, you`re lifting weights and you`re sweating like a stuffed pig”
But enough about his personal life and let`s start talking about “Gerard Butler`s Workout And Diet Plan”.
Gerard Butler`s Workout Routine
Butler hired Mark Twight a former world-class mountain climber who, based on personal experience, believes in training as if your life depends on it.
Also 5 weeks before filming “300″ Gerard Butler took extra sessions with a venezuelan bodybuilder named Franco LiCastro in order to get a more well defined physique.
- Pullups – 25 reps
- Deadlifts with 135 lbs – 50 reps
- Pushups – 50 reps
- 24-inch Box jumps – 50 reps
- Floor wipers – 50 reps
- Single arm “Clean and Press” with 36 lbs Kettlebell – 50 reps
- Pullups – 25 reps
Gerard Butler has done these exercises without rest between the sets so it`s obviously an advanced workout that you shouldn`t try if you are a begginer. I almost forgot, he did a lot of cardio as well.
Gerard Butler`s Diet Plan
In order to keep those muscles growing Gerard had a strict diet plan because you know that nutrition will play a key role in determining your success or failure with changing the way your body looks.
Gerard ate 4-5-6 times a day because if you leave your body without food more then 4 hours.. it gets in starvation mode and after his hard workouts, if Butler didn`t eat his body metabolism would of shut off due to lack of consistent nutrients.
To maintain his muscles Gerard Butler ate something like:
- skinless chicken breast, turkey breast or lean ground turkey, fish and eggs for his proteins
- whole-grain bread, multigrain pasta, oats, potato/sweet potato, and brown rice for his complex carbohydrates
- canola or olive oil, avocado, almonds, flaxseed, and natural peanut butter for his healthy fats
- green vegetables and drank a lot of water
That kind of concludes Gerard Butler`s Workout and Diet Plan, hope you enjoyed reading this information, and Gerard keep those muscles pumping and Jennifer Aniston is cute !
