Are you waiting to see the new movie “Thor”? Cause i sure am and i can barely wait… from the trailer it seems that “Thor” will be a blockbuster but now let`s get back to our main subject today: Chris Hemsworth, his muscle workout and his diet plan!
Chris Hemsworth`s Workout for “Thor”
For playing the role of Thor, Chris Hemsworth required an amazing transformation with his physique at least (we can`t doubt his talent in acting) and for that transformation Chris really gave all his energy and dedication as you can see in the photos from the short gallery that i included in this article. You really have to be real focused on your workout routine and diet plan in order to get so much muscle mass as Chris Hemsworth did.
After working out, Chris had to repair his small tears from the muscles resulted from intense training and the only way you can repair them is by sleeping because when you sleep the body`s HGH (human growth hormone) spikes. If you didn`t know, HGH helps people with burning fat and gaining muscles. By the way at his height 6′ 3″ (1.91 m) it`s really hard to get that kind of muscle mass. Just look at the “Thor” movie trailer, it rocks !
With the help of Mike Knight lead trainer from art of strength, Chris Hemsworth was on his way for a buffed and hardcore body that you will see in the new movie “Thor”.. yeah yeah it`s hard to gain muscles but you only need dedication!
Chris Hemsworth was used to work out using machines like you see in the gym but Mike Knight made him train like an animal for brute force and pure strength in the muscles with.. can you guess? Well with logs, kettlebells, ropes, hammers and other alternative methods which train the core with intensity.
Chris trained with Knight for a period of 6 months and Knight made him train even on set making Chris Hemsworth to lift and even carry cast members to keep him in a pumped up shape.
Chris Hemsworth`s Diet Plan for “Thor”
The main element for Chris Hemsworth`s muscle mass was his diet and he said in an interview that he used a lot of protein shakes, ate lots of chicken breasts and overall a lot of calories and food for those muscles. Chris Hemsworth also got rid of refined sugar and saturated fats in order to gain that muscle mass that we like.
