It’s hard to choose which roles to name when talking about Jude Law.
He is absolutely incredible.
And, if I didn’t already love him enough, now he’s not only going to be in Captain Marvel, but also Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts: Crimes Against Grindelwald.
I mean, come one!
There’s just so many to name, but as you guys know, I’m a full blown nerd and absolutely love Marvel, Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes. And now he’s joining all three.
We’ve seen Robert Downey Jr., Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Rachel McAdams all show up as both Sherlock characters AND Marvel characters, but Law will be the first to also star in the Harry Potter world.
I suppose we’ll need a Martin Freeman workout soon, eh?
And, if you’e interested, we also just saw Zoe Kravitz who will be starring as Leta Lestrange, and also have Ezra Miller on the site as well. Although, I suppose Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson deserve a shoutout as well.
Jude Law Stats:
Weight: (approximate) 190 lbs.
Age: 45 years old
Jude Law is actually shorter than the average male we see at SHJ.
But, he does fall into a category of men we have.
But, don’t worry either way.
We write these routines to be utilized by any shape and size.
Jude Law Diet and Nutrition
We’ve seen some extreme diets and weight gains and losses from celebs before. One that particularly stands out for me is Christian Bale’s transformation back and forth.
Well, Jude Law has gone through something similar.
Before I get started, I would like to point out that I do not, by any means, suggest bulking like Jude Law did.
BUT, I want to share it because it shows some of the extremes that celebrities use, and also is nice to recognize how his normal and sustainable diet was capable of allowing easy weight-loss to bring him back to his normal physique afterwards.
For his role is Don Hemingway, Jude Law put on 20-30 lbs.
And it wasn’t muscle.
Jude shares with Daily Mail:
‘It was a lot of everything, but two key ingredients – ice cream, two or three tubs a day, and a lot of fizzy drinks, 12 cans a day.’
It even is listed on Men’s Journal’s top weight losses and gains list among celeb transformations!
On a regular basis, Jude Law opts for a more sustainable approach. Simply eating intuitively and fairly clean.
And, this approach was easily able to bring him back to normal weight and physique.
We see a lot of celebs opt for a sustainable approach like this.
That’s why our Academy Nutrition Classes (Monks, Minimalists, SuperHumans, Vikings, Spartans, Hunter Gatherers, Greek Gods, Samurais) revolve around helping you find the specific diet that is right FOR YOU.
Of course, there are a lot of reasons to HAVE the strict guidelines.
We’ve seen a lot of celebs opt for specific restrictions.
For example: Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart incorporate 80/20 dieting with big weekly cheat meals, Hugh Jackman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Terry Crews utilize intermittent fasting(something I use daily as well), Mustafa Shakir and Madelaine Petsch are vegans, Brandon Routh and Frank Grillo opt for paleo, and tons of others utilize their own variations as well.
And, that’s just to name a few celebs from each, by the way.
You can check out our Nutrition Pillars for more information and articles on all of the above and more.
Jude Law Workout Routine Research
Female First has a great interview with one of Jude Law’s trainers, and it gives us some insight on his normal training (or rather, the lack thereof), and his work ethic.
They immediately start off by telling us this about Law’s level of fitness prior to the training for Repo Men:
– What sort of shape was Jude in before you started working with him – were you worried in any way?
Jude was not in good shape at all but I had no concerns about training him. Everyone has the ability to be ‘fit’. They just need to be shown the way. Jude was dedicated from day one.
It is easy to work with someone who has his level of dedication. Jude is a professional.
Lisa Twight, Jude Law’s trainer, and the trainer who famously programmed the 300 Workout, immediately touches upon Law’s hard work.
The conversation continues with:
– You worked with him for a good four months so can you talk about the regime that you put him through – the types of exercises or equipment and how they help build certain aspects of his fitness?
In my opinion the physical training is secondary to the psychological changes that occur when someone really trains for something and doesn’t simply show up and work out.
Working out is just picking stuff up and putting it down. It is simple. You can use Kettlebells, a rower or bodyweight exercises and it just doesn’t matter. What really matters is the effort and mindset that go into the program.
To be meaningful training must challenge a person’s self imposed limitations. Equipment and exercise selection is a secondary concern.
– And what was Jude like to work with? And how much input did Jude have to the type of work that you would do?
Jude was one of the most dedicated athletes I have ever worked with. I use the word athlete because he was trained as one. As I said before Jude is a professional.
He trusted the process. He trusted me implicitly and treated the training like a job. He did everything we asked of him without question.
And, lucky for us, CoachMag shares the majority of the programming with us!
