Robert Downey Jr.’s Fitness Routine
Robert Downey Jr. whipped himself into shape for “Iron Man.” He managed to get lean, buff, and cut.

He uses some strange equipment, and also considers psychology when he trains his clients. So, want to find out how he did? Keep reading to find out all of Robert Downey Jr.’s Body Sculpting Tips and Weight Loss Secrets.
Brad Bose has twenty years of experience in the fitness business. He is experience in wrestling, and sword work. Brad also has a doctorate in physiology, and is part life coach. You can get his excellent fitness services for $175 per session. In terms of the psychology of training; Brad refuses to stand over someone lying down because it creates a dominant-submissive relationship, he said. Instead, he rolls over an exercise ball and sits with the student eye-to-eye. He and his seven trainers refrain from judgment and let clients discover for themselves what they want from their training sessions.
“The challenge here was to keep him from looking too much like a superhero. His character is an alcoholic and a womanizer, and he’s an arms dealer. They didn’t want a six-pack or bulging muscles, but they wanted to see that he had the power to forge iron.”
“He never faltered,” Bose said. “A lot of people don’t realize how demanding it is. The training would be a challenge for anyone.”
“We don’t tell someone, `You should do this,’ ” Bose said. “A lot of problem with weight loss is resistance: `You can’t have chocolate!’ `I’ve got to have chocolate!’ You’re seen as the adversary.”
Robert Downey Jr. on Brad Bose
“I was already training with Brad,” Downey said, “and so during the whole time of waiting to see and then screen-testing for, and then getting `Iron Man,’ I’ve been training with Brad.”
“He’s a doctor in this stuff. A lot of people out here are good and gifted and they’ve got books out. But when you go back and find out, what they really know about physiology is kind of limited. But he’s the guy.”
Robert trained five days a week. His workout included weight-lifting, intensive martial arts training, and cardio. Bose had Robert use various unique pieces of equipment to get into Iron Man form.
The Ab-Inforcer is a device that gets your spine in a neutral mode to work your core muscles properly and uses sensory feedback to alert you when you’re out of alignment. “It teaches the difference between using your abs and using your hip flexors,” says Bose, “which are usually the root of a lot of postural problems.”
The Pineapple is a vibrating platform that causes you to use your core muscles, and leg muscles. You can do weights,a step-style cardio workout, and even yoga on it.
