I don’t know what I love more…Thor or Westworld!
Okay, probably Thor, but Westworld was damn good!
Thompson has also been in other awesome roles like Heroes, War on Everyone, Dear White People, and even Creed with Michael B. Jordan (to name just a few).
Now she faces what could potentially be Marvel’s best villain to date with Thor Ragnarok’s Hela.
But, we can take that debate to the comment section…
Tessa Thompson Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 121 lbs.
Age: 33 years old
Olivia Munn is right there at the same height, and the rest range from 5’5-5’6, which is right at that sweet sport average.
But, hey, like I say in every routine, this is just a fun comparison.
Don’t be scared to try it if you’re not the same size as Thompson, this routine will be for everyone and anyone to utilize!
Tessa Thompson Diet and Nutrition
Tessa Thompson is often shown off in magazines as a style wiz, so dressing for Valkyrie might have been a little different for her.
Being a style aficionado sometimes comes with having the physique to strut it. And, Thompson does that pretty dang well.
Her physique comes from an awesome diet, and some decent training as well!
Self Magazine shares this about her diet:
Thompson’s breakfast is packed with healthy foods. Almonds ward off stress, and a grapefruit a day may stave off heart disease. A study in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry reveals that antioxidant-rich red grapefruit is most effective at lowering levels of triglycerides, a type of fat associated with heart problems. Kombucha is also chock full of antioxidants, which also contribute to healthy skin and fight wrinkles, according to experts. While the fat content in avocado might be high, never fear: it’s mostly the good for you kind. Moreover, it’s that same fat that keeps you satiated, so you’ll be less inclined to go overboard on other eats throughout the day.
And, while we generally promote intermittent fasting here at SHJ, I will say this breakfast looks pretty awesome.
The ingredients shown include: avocado, olive oil, salt and pepper, sunflower rye toast, almonds, yerbe mate cranberry synergy kombusha, and half a grapefruit.
As we know, everyone has different goals and different needs in order to make their routines sustainable, so if this type of meal does the job for you, than get it in and make it work!
That’s at the heart of all the Nutritional Classes within The Academy (Vikings, Samurais, Monks, Hunter Gatherers, Spartans, Minimalists) – sustainability and fun!
So feel free to take this Tessa Thompson diet fun and incorporate it with any of the other nutrition pillars we utilize at SHJ!
Tessa Thompson Workout Routine Research
Thompson, as I’ve pointed out, has starred in some awesome roles.
Two of them, Thor Ragnarok and Creed, involve some badass fighting and toning!
Another thing I was able to find is the fact that Tessa Thompson loves Pop Physique (AKA Pop Fitness Classes) built into her routine!
Instyle magazine shares this with us in an article about her “11 Favorite Things” and Thompson states:
“If you do Pop Physique often, it dramatically changes your body.”
So, that’s definitely something we’ll be including!
Another things we’ll be utilizing within Tessa Thompson’s workout routine is some aspects of training we’ve seen from Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Ragnarok training.
We know Marvel stars share trainers and types of training regimes often, so Thompson was very likely to use some of the same styled workouts.
