Ryan Phillippe is ripped!
Not sure if you’ve noticed. But you’re about to.
This one is an SHJ Army member request, and I’m glad I’ve been getting them more frequently, because they’ve been great ones!
Similar to my most recent character workout being Kratos (God of War), which I think I may have overlooked!
But, this routine is going to be less going for the big and burley look, and more-so going for the lean and shredded physique that we see Phillippe sporting.
Ryan Phillippe Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 172 lbs
Age: 43 years old
Ryan Phillippe is listed as being anywhere between 5’8 and 5’9, but I found more sources saying 5’9.
But, don’t worry either way.
I write these routines to be utilized by anyone and everyone.
Ryan Phillippe Diet and Nutrition
There’s a bunch of sources out there for the Ryan Phillippe workout routine that are going to be vital to creating this routine (and by that I mean the big name interviews like Men’s Health, Men’s Journal, and Muscle and Fitness) – BUT, there’s not much about his diet and nutrition.
But, don’t think that means you can out-train your diet and eat whatever you want.
Because you can’t.
I’m still going to layout guidelines and dietary tips for you to get shredded like Phillippe. We’re going to cut the fat and shred to muscles for the best toned physique we can get.
Let’s not forget about sustainability though.
That’s one of the most important parts.
That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Vikings, Hunter Gatherers, Spartans, Samurais, SuperHumans, Minimalists) are all based around finding the most sustainable nutrition regime for YOU!
But, that’s just one of the many options. You can also check out the Nutrition Pillars on the site and read about more of the ways you can pair things together to get shredded like Phillippe.
Or, even check out our new programs that are revolved around specific goals (Bulking or Cutting), that form to your specific criteria.
Ryan Phillippe Workout Routine Research
So for this workout routine we’re going to be mainly focusing around Phillippe’s routine he utilized for Shooter, and how he got his ripped physique portrayed in that role.
I’ll also be adding some information about his other routines (through other sources and quotes), but they’re actually pretty similar so it won’t be hard to mold them if you’d like to.
Starting with Muscle and Fitness, which I believe is going to be our best source for this one, they tell us how Phillippe utilizes a “prison-style” workout routine.
If you don’t remember what that’s like, I’ll give you a quote from M&F:
Ryan Phillippe and his his longtime personal trainer, Happy Hill, refer to the actor’s training regimen as a “prison-style workout” for both its simplicity and reliance on basic equipment: barbells, dumbbells, and bodyweight moves.
Phillippe’s “Happy Hour Grind,” a five-times-weekly, 90-minute workout—which encompasses old-school calisthenics, free weights, and a half-hour warmup of sprints on a treadmill or an elliptical—tests both his muscular endurance and trains his entire body.
That breaks it down for us pretty dang well.
In an interview with Men’s Journal, Phillippe states:
“Whether I’m doing a movie or TV show or not, I’ve worked out five days a week, 1 1/2 hours a day, for the past 20 years,” he says.
Which goes right in line with what M&F has him doing still for his role.
And, Men’s Health had one of Phillippe’s older routines, which they describe by saying:
Phillippe blends cardio work with heavy weights and adds plyometrics for a comprehensive challenge.
Which isn’t that far off what we’re going to see out of his “prison-style” routine.
Let’s get to it.
