Hugh Jackman’s Exercise

For The X-men series Hugh worked with Steve Ramsbottom. First phase was focused on building mass by changing the speed of each lift, 3 sec count up and then a 1 sec count down or really slow 4 sec count up and 4 count down. Second phase focused on strength by lifting really heavy weights, without the sec count. Each phase lasted from 6 to 12 weeks, for one to two hours, five days a week. When it was close to shooting time, he lifted weights 1 day and filled the other days with yoga, pilates, running, and stretching. He even did bootcamp training in there too. For the full workout check out below.
