Henry Cavill Workout Routine And Diet For Superman

TO have a toned ʙᴏᴅʏ, actor Henry Cavill drinks whey protein, exercises 4 to 6 times per week and gets 8 hours of sleep.

Dubbed the actor playing Superman with an appearance closest to the original, actor Henry Cavill has a healthy, balanced ʙᴏᴅʏ. The British male idol confided that he was bullied when he was young because he was too fat.

After receiving many insults about his appearance, the “man of steel” determined to change his appearance to become more confident. At the age of 40, he still maintains his form and is capable of playing many diverse action roles.

The actor once shared about his exercise and eating regimen. He said he trains 6 days a week, has different exercises at each time, supporting each muscle group. He started with training his legs, then his chest muscles, followed by his triceps and calves. The following days he trained his back and biceps.

To control weight and burn fat, Cavill shared that he likes to do fasted cardio. He usually wakes up in the morning, drinks coffee and practices for half an hour.

Research published in the British Journal of Nutrition shows that fasted cardio leads to higher fat oxidation than postprandial exercise. This is the stage of breaking down fatty acids to reduce ʙᴏᴅʏ fat.

For muscle exercises, Cavill has the support of personal trainer Dave Rienzi, who has worked with actor Dwayne Johnson. Rienzi said that the right ʙᴏᴅʏbuilding equipment for Cavill and people with his ʙᴏᴅʏ type is dumbbells. Weight training helps build and maintain muscle, while stabilizing joints to reduce stress and reduce the risk of injury.

Cavill often uses shakes with protein powder in the morning. He especially likes to use pure whey protein, which has almost all the lactose in milk filtered, allowing the protein to be absorbed faster into the ʙᴏᴅʏ.

2020 research shows that whey protein combined with resistance exercise increases muscle mass, which can change ʙᴏᴅʏ mass composition.

Cavill also often drinks caffeinated drinks before working out. According to a review from the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, caffeine improves endurance and muscle strength, and increases cognitive function.

In a recent post on Instagram, Cavill talked about two supplements commonly used in the morning, which are thermogenic drinks, which help enhance fat burning – resulting in stronger and more effective weight loss.

Cavill has a very simple diet, starting the day with a two-part breakfast. First, he drank a can of protein shake, consisting of one and a half scoops of pure protein, a cup of oatmeal and a handful of berries. The food includes an omelette with ham.

The second and third meals of the day both have chicken and curry sauce. For the fourth meal, he used about 113 grams of beef and sweet potatoes. Before going to bed, he took two more scoops of protein powder. During cheat days, he likes to enjoy stuffed pizza.

Cavill sets a goal of getting 8 hours of sleep despite his busy schedule. According to the National Sleep Foundation, seven to nine hours of sleep per night is ideal for good health. However, researchers say people should make adjustments based on their personal lifestyle. Getting enough sleep helps you have a good immune system, a healthy heart, high work productivity, reduced anxiety and more confidence.
