Henry cavil’s workout plan
At first we are going to find out some workouts that HENRY CAVILL used to do for keeping his body in shape. His strength coach is DAVE RIANZI.
NOTE – He used to do fasted cardio first thing in the morning then he start working out in the gym later in the day.
GLUTES AND HAMSTRING
In his workout plan he need to focus on things which would support the level of stunt work that he is doing.
with all the stunt work he is doing the key foundation movement he is going to incorporate is the ROMANIAN DEADLIFT. to strengthen the posterior chain.
HENRY CAVILL is doing for the second negative with this and then a two-second pause at the bottom and then coming back up and contracting the glutes.
And the whole key here is just maximizing the time under tension so he is able to fatigue the muscles more but not overstress his nervous system and his adrenals which help him to have the endurance to di all the stunts without getting injured and to have the neurological capacity to be a great partner to his show owner.
- ROMANIAN DEADLIFT WITH BANDS (3 SETS OF 10REPS)
He is doing four-second negative with this and then a two-second pause at the bottom and then coming back up and contracting the glutes. This will help him to activate his glutes medius and really keeping the glutes activated and fired whole time.
So the next exercise in this workout plan is the HYPEREXTENSION. He is actually doing this on a glute hamstring machine. Which is going to be more challenging than a traditional hyperextension machine. what he is focusing on here s isolation.
Really contracting the glutes at the top and holding each rep for 2 second. He is really continuing the conversation of making sure the posterior chain is as strong as possible.
When its comes to the posterior chain the kind of stunts he has to do especially when its pirouettes with swords, anything which is based upon one leg movement where a knee can have a bad injury if he doesn’t have those good medials engaged or the posterior chain these exercises are what saves HENRY CAVILL .
- HYPEREXTENSION (3 SETS OF 10 REPS)
And the focus here is again on isolating the posterior chain, really activating the glutes and lower back. He is performing the repetitions by pausing at the top for 2 seconds squeezing and engaging those glutes and then his hands are behind his head which actually makes the movement even more challenging.
Another key to HENRY CAVILL training here is really focusing on core strengths so this movement he is doing here is on OBLIQUE STATIC HOLD. And what he is doing here he is extending hid own arms, he is holding in his core tight and basically what this is allowing him to do is activate the transverse abdominals and the obliques at the same time. He is also keeping his glutes engaged by extending his arms out and then inward he is making the movement even more challenging.
- OBLIQE STATIC HOLD ( 3 SETS OF 30S HOLD PER SIDE)
And with this especially this helps with one, endurance when he has to do a fight scenes for a long time with swords. If he is using a real sword real weighted sword, It’s very heavy and requires a lot of endurance to do the moves safely and perfectly each time. And also allows for nice explosive movement which is very typical for the witcher.
- 3-WAY SHOULDER RISE ( 3 SETS OF 15 REPS)
For the witcher, HENRY CAVILL needs to do a lot of sword fighting. So with the sword fighting the key for training is to really focus on shoulders, and making sure that they are strong and then also that muscular endurance is there for shoulders.
This movement here is a variation of side laterals and front raises. So each repetition is actually three repetitions.
He is starting out with traditional side laterals for the first rep and then he is coming to a little further forward for the next one and then doing a traditional front raise for the next one. So this allows targeting the medial deltoid and anterior deltoid in one movement.
This really helps Henry with the sword fighting aspect. swords are typically very heavy and when he is using for the whole day long for a long period of time it really does help to have muscular endurance in the shoulders and the shoulders and the strength to be able to move in explosive movements and also control. Because of film fighting. He is not going through for kill strikes he has to pull the blow at the last second . But he has to keep that speed up between the striking moment and the stopping moment to make it look realistic and so the extra strength and endurance in the shoulders really helps with that.
- HALF-ISO ALTERNATING DB CURL ( 3 SETS OF 10 REPS PER ARMS)
So next exercise is going to be a dumbell curl althernating from a static hold.
for the sword working in particular again its what this really helps with his forearms. That constant time under pressure. can help him withholding a heavy sword for the whole day long for a long period of time.
This exersise alow him to keep the bicep under tension for longer period of time.
This exercise allows him t keep the bicep under tension for a longer period of time and to get more activation out of the forearms and then also continue working on that muscular endurance that is so important for his role.
