We’ve already seen our full Chris Evans’ workout routine and diet plan research that actually has this workout listed on top of two others, and research into his nutrition – but I wanted to make sure you guys have a bit more.
I like posting the different routines we see these celebrities (and their trainers) share as individual articles, as well as updating their main article so you guys can choose how you’d like to get the information.
This workout is actually research that’s dating back to Evans’ initial Captain America training, but it’s nice to have insight into the fact that these celebrities are constantly switching up their training – even when it’s during the same training for a specific role!
I wrote all about the fact that these celebs adapt constantly for roles within my book Superhuman Secrets, but the fact that some of them even switch it up during a 3-6 month span with the same goal is another great note to make.
For this addition to the research we already have we’re using Men’s Health as a source that did an interview with Chris Evans’ trainer/coach Simon Waterson.
Here’s what he said regarding his leg workout:
“When I first started working with Chris for the original Captain America film, the studio had a very specific idea about how they wanted him to look,” Waterson said. “My brief was to build Chris a strong, big and lean body that was realistic, functional and in proper proportion. In the movie, his character is physically transformed into the perfect soldier specimen so he had to look the part.”
Most people make note of Chris Evans’ chest and even biceps, but Evans also put a lot of work into building up his legs as well.
Never skip leg day, right?
Waterson went on to say:
“Chris had done some weight training before, but as with a lot of guys it had been focused on the vanity muscles – chest, arms and abs,” he said. “He understood the importance of a balanced physique. I had to work him hard but at a sensible pace – I couldn’t afford to have him sidelined for four weeks with an injury.” Inevitably, building this “balanced physique” would involve a lot of lower-body work for Evans, who went from 77kg to 82kg for the role.
And, to top if off he also shared a lower body/leg workout that him and Evans would utilize during their training together.
I’m going to break it down in detail below!
