Is it possible for fat “Dad-Bod” guys to still be HILARIOUS when they get in better shape then most people?
Chris Pratt is putting that to the test as he continues to keep off the weight he lost when getting ready to become Starlord.
Chris Pratt aka Peter Quill aka the guy who drops more than 60 pounds for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy. Yes, I proofread that last sentence and the number 60 was correct. Call him what you’d like, but when Pratt (<–that’s what I’m calling him) found out he had the role of Peter Quill, he knew he had to do some serious toning up!
Thankfully for Pratt, he was paired up with some awesome coaches. Thankfully for us, we’re able to the inside scoop on what the workout was!
Pratt used a combination of nutrition and planned dieting given to him by nutritionist Phil Goglia and paired it with an amazing workout routine made for him by Duffy Gaver. Pratt was able to post of selfie after training for five months that took fire to the internet. [Shown below in his before and after pictures] His routine consisted of 4-6 training days a week.
Both his coaches told Mens Fitness in their interviews that Pratt was amazing to work with. He wasn’t one of the clients you’d have to push to keep going. He knew what he wanted and continued to work hard to get to it. A direct quote from Duffy is as follows:
He wanted more muscle, to be much leaner, and to be more fit. He wanted to do justice to the role.
Hopefully you can use that as motivation before going to the next page and seeing the full workout! If you want to get ripped like Peter Quill, it’s time to start acting like a Superhero!
Updated Content: Chris Pratts Diet and Nutrition
I was recently reading about Pratt in Entertainment Magazine when he was showing off his chiseled six pack prior to the Jurassic World release. The article was about him continuing on his low-carb/paleo diet. Then I began thinking…
How have I not talked more about his diet on one of the most awesome transformations I cover?…
Here’s what Pratt has to say to GQ about who he was before Starlord:
“My bones ached, I had cardiovascular issues [when I was fat],” Chris told GQ May 18. “I was unhealthy. I was feeling rotten. I didn’t feel too great about who I was.”
And another quote that answers my first question at the very beginning of the post! This one’s just for fun and in response to his wife thinking he was more fun when he was fat :
“Probably in many ways she preferred me that way,” said Chris. “I was more fun to be around, probably. Now I have less fun. I focus more. She doesn’t get to cook for me the way she used to. I was like a great pet fat guy.”
Thankfully having paleo as part of our nutrition pillars – we already know how awesome it is – BUT, for those of you who don’t know: Paleo is a low carb diet that revolves around higher fat, moderate protein and low carb intake. The lower carb and higher fat automatically begin helping you shred fat while the moderate protein allows you to get enough for muscle growth.
