So I just watched I Am Legend and bravissimo to Will Smith for looking phenomenal. The movie is about the last man alive in a city overrun with mutants, but enough about the movie.
Funny, but it seems like when Will Smith does a movie it’s more like he is getting ready to step into the ring of the Best Bodied Actor Competition. I mean if I were a betting man, Smith would be my number #1 competitor.
Ever since the movie, Independence Day, Will Smith’s body has definitely changed and with Legend he’s coming in at his best look. Muscular, Ripped and the guy is 39 years old.
From the movies Ali to IRobot and the recent I Am Legend, I have to admire his effort for getting in shape.
Will Smith dropped twenty pounds for this film. He went from about 210 to 190 pounds.
Surprisingly, during an interview, he said that, “I have a much easier time losing weight than putting weight on. Ali was fifty times harder trying to put weight on than to drop.”
Will Smith’s Diet and Exercise routine keeps this actor in great shape. Will eats a very healthy diet and works out regularly. He takes good care of his body and isn’t afraid to work up a good sweat in the gym. His usual diet is restricted and he eats low carbohydrate and No Junk Food.
Will worked out five days a week. Each workout session he would focus on one or two body parts until failure. He ran at least 5 miles 6 days a week, and he boxed twice a week. Typically when not filming he works out everyday.
Will says “just stay ready.’ Stay in shape and then you don’t have to rush to train before the movie starts. But that idea, if you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready. “
The bottom line is resistance train 3-4 times per week to near failure each set and do cardio at least 3 times per week. Don’t be afraid to sweat.
You never know when you might be the last person on earth.
Don’t Rush the Beat
