Have you seen the recent pictures of Chris Hemsworth playing Thor? I , for one, was a very open critic. After all, I grew up in the 80′s where all the actors were real life action heros. Chris Hemsworth did some serious work for Thor.
Recent pictures show a muscled up Chris Hemsworth trying to lift the hammer that no one could. I was vocal because as a comic book fan, no one could lift the hammer. So how was Hemsworth, who was never a big guy, going to do something that the Incredible Huk couldn’t do?
Well Chris Hemsworth added some muscle for Thor. How did he do it? You know I honestly don’t know.
My guess is that he was a newbie, someone that never really lifted weights or trained hard before. Obviously, anyone that starts training hard after not training seriously can make some big results. I’d imagine that he did some of the more Hollywood based workouts to build muscle and lose fat.
You know TRX straps and all but good for him. Sure the picture makes him look bigger then he is, it’s the combination of the lighting and camera angle.
The plan is simple actually:
Chris Hemsworth did a lot of strongman training including sledgehammer tiring smashing which is a lot more then you expect. The cardio workout that it gives you is amazing.
He ate a lot of protein. While I’m not convinced that more protein is always better, when you’re been following a lwoer protein diet and need to bulk up it works wonders in the short term.
Thor was strong right? So to be strong Chris had to focus on big movement exercises such as deadlifts and chin ups. These movements work multiple muscles which causes more overload.
At the end of the day you can build as much muscle as Chris has built if your willing to committ to a 12 week intense workout program. Focus on your diet and training and hit it hard!
