When Thor hits the gym

By  |  0 Comments

Yes folks, it is time to shift the attention from our daily fitness routines and check out what the hotties of Hollywood are up to. Thor is definitely  Chrish Hemsworth aka Thor, is probably the hottest Aussie we have had the pleasure of seeing on screen. That too when someone that handsome enacts God himself, whilst falling in love with a mere mortal and fighting evil forces just out of the goodness of his heart. Yes, I know it is an extremely cliched thing to say, but I cannot get over the sexiness oozing from every pore of that man. Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth definitely have the charm in their blood, for both the brothers are equally alluring and so manly at the same time. However, as many of you have noticed on screen, making a physique worthy of the character of Thor must have been a mammoth task. I mean have you even noticed the size of the biceps and forearms of the Asgardian, when he wields Mjolnir (his hammer)??
It is quite obvious that the workout routine he had to follow for making such a bold physique required immense time at the gym, not to mention a proper diet plan as well; and under his trainer and former Navy SEAL Duffy Gaver, who mostly applied old school bodybuilding techniques to work his arms and shoulders, he finally managed to build the Thor body.

DIET:
So Hemsworth’s diet apparently included a lot of red meat and some amount of protein powder. According to his trainer, our beloved Thor was completely off Steroids, which is always the first impression people tend to make. And yes we would indeed like to belive that our favourite star pulled it off just by sweating it out.

So that alluring physique is essentially the product of intense workout schedule, that too on a regular basis. Well now we know for sure, why these actores get paid the insane amount they do, the truly are talented performers who can modify their body at a moment’s just to fit the character, and no matter what other’s might say, that is a really difficult task. So for all the guys out there, do you think you have it in you to pull off the Thor workout routine and that too without Steroids? I think it is a bit of a challenge for you all and something many of you should consider. I do not think it will be that difficult, because after all it is not Dwayne Johnson I am referring to. So, now if you want a body like Thor, here is your one chance at sweating it out to get those biceps.
