Ryan Reynolds abs workout for X Men Origins Wolverine was the result of consistent training and a superb diet. Playing the character of Hannibal King in Blade Trinity was the last time that Reynolds played a quasi comic book character. His trainer for that film was Darren Chapman but for Wolverine Origins, celebrity trainer Bobby Strom got the thumbs-up.
Chances are that Strom will use a very different training program for Reynolds than the one used in blade Trinity. Marvel comic’s fans know the physical attributes of Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds will have to do more than have a set of six pack abs to show on screen. Deadpool in the comics is portrayed as a well muscled mercenary/superhero. Reynolds will have to put on some serious muscle size in order to do this character justice.
How to Get Six Pack Abs like Ryan Reynolds
Strom is an old-school bodybuilder and recently has become a firm believer in “Functional Fitness.” He likes to include weightlifting, isometrics and core body strengthening exercises.
Developing a set of six pack abs for some people can be difficult. It is not just about exercising; diet plays a very important role as well. Some fitness experts will tell you that to have a ripped, flat stomach your diet has to be clean.
In developing your abs, you need to bear in mind that the lower abs are the hardest muscle to develop. (Most males store their fat in the lower abdomen.)
3 Strategies to Use in Getting Your Own Ryan Reynolds Abs
I listed diet first because it is probably responsible for 80 to 90% of the success of any six pack abs training program. The first thing you must do is to begin eating 5 to 6 meals per day. If you eat the traditional three square meals, your body’s metabolism will be much slower and will not aid you in losing body fat.
By the way when I mentioned 5 to 6 meals per day I am not talking about a smorgasbord. Most bodybuilders and fitness experts recommend that you use a high protein shake for 2 to 3 of the six meals. They do this mostly for convenience.
2. Abs Workout
Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to an effective abs workout. In Trinity, he performed between 500 to 1000 situps before he began his weight training sessions. Although situps can be an effective stomach exercise, I firmly believe that doing stomach isometrics is much more effective.
You see any exercise that increases the size of the stomach muscles will just lead to a bigger belt size! Steve Reeves the bodybuilder and actor featured in many of the Hercules sells never performed any oblique stomach exercises. The oblique muscles are the muscles on the side of the stomach.
The last strategy can be just as important as diet. Although, one snickers bar can cost you one hour of cardio to burn off the equivalent amount of calories. The major benefit of doing cardio workouts is that it elevates your metabolism. Your body will continue to burn fat even after you are through with your cardio session.
Apply these three strategies just like Ryan Reynolds did for his abs and you to a very short time can have ripped six pack abs.
