I went and watched the movie Thor last week. It was entertaining, full of action and laughs, and the lead character – played by Chris Hemsworth – had a pretty incredible transformation – gaining over 20 pounds of lean muscle for the role… And so it has found it’s way onto this blog.
After the movie I did some looking around, trying to find something about what he did to gain all of that muscle so fast. And what I found didn’t really surprise me: a lot of bullshit. There were a ton of marketers claiming to have the workout Chris used to gain his lean muscle mass, or even selling ‘the workout’ he used in preparation for the roll.
However, I did find a helpful article in a Men’s Health Magazine article.
After seeing all of that nonsense out there, I decided to not even touch his transformation. No, I’m going to come at this whole Thor or superhero muscle from a different angle.
Chris’ transformation was awesome. But it got me thinking about the actual character of Thor. A guy, who like many of us, likes a beer, loves his food, and has a desire to yes, have an awesome-looking body, but as a warrior he needs powerful and athletic muscle as well. So why not focus on an actual Thor workout?
If Thor were an actual human, how would he train, and what would he eat?
That’s where I figured I’d make “the Real Thor Workout”. A 3-week program focused on building ripped, athletic muscle. The workouts are challenge-based workouts that start with a heavy compound exercise. The difference between this workout, and most of the other workouts you’ll see, yes lies in the training, but also the diet.
I give you an example of what you can eat in the run of a day. They’re meals that actually taste good, are good for you, and will help you reach your goals. The majority of the day is surrounded by foods that are high in proteins and fats, but low on the Glycemic Index – aside from the meals surrounding a workout.
