What was Henry Cavill's arm training routine?
Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill was born 5th May 1983. He was the third of four sons living on one of the Channel Islands called Jersey. Henry finished his education in Stowe, Buckinghamshire, England. His acting career started in 2002 with "The Count of Monte Cristo" acting as Albert Mondego. like the Inspector Lynley Mysteries, The Tudors and Midsomer Murders before moving onto Hollywood movies like Stardust, Tristan & Isolde and Immortals. After his role as Clark Kent playing Superman in 2004 suddenly everyone wanted to know what exercise he does.
Because of the pressure to release some regular exercise routine Henry eventually published his Superman workout. Henry explains that he needed to increase his lean body mass for his role "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" which he says worked in four specific phases: The preparation phase, then the bulking phase, followed by the leaning out/reduction phase and the maintenance phase.
Below is a day's training during his bulking phase, that include Olympic weightlifting movements and a few others designed to increase speed, build muscle and increase strength simultaneously. When the routine listed below is done circuit fashion it's very demanding and boosts endurance immensely.
Monday: Lift 10,000lbs in the shortest possible time, using minimum rest between sets and using one or all of the following movements:
Complete 8 x 50 yard sprints Resting 60 seconds between each sprint
Thursday: As many rounds as possible to be done in 10 minutes using 50lb dumbbells:
