Have you ever wondered what the Captain America actor Chris Evans diet workout consists of? Do you want to get into the same shape as your favorite superhero? Well, this is how he did it.
The Captain America actor Chris Evans diet workout basically consisted of gaining muscle mass and exercise at least 5 days a week. Needless to say, this can be a daunting task for anyone who isn’t exactly fitness crazy, but that is what Evans had to do. It’s pretty obvious that he has gained a lot of muscle since the first Captain America movie made it’s way onto the silver screen and Evans was hellbent on making his character memorable for the last one.
Those of you who have followed his career up until this point will agree that he is naturally slim and for this reason he decided to go with “heavyweight/low-rep sets of the classic compound lifts”. Unfortunately not all of us understand this type of exercise lingo, so to make it simpler, he did a lot of weight training. According to Evans he mostly did a variety of:
– Shoulder Presses
– Incline Bench Presses
– Weighted Dips
Obviously he didn’t just do these, but apparently they formed the foundation for the regime. However, Evans didn’t want to give up agility for the sake of muscle, which is why he did some gymnastics as well. Once you see the new movie you will realize why he wanted to stay in a physical state where he could jump, run and do fight sequences without his muscles getting in the way so-to-speak.
Now you might be wondering what he was munching during those months of training, but keep in mind that he didn’t want to lose any weight or muscle. He just wanted to keep adding fat in order to build lean muscle, given his natural slender physique.
In the world of exercise and muscle building, protein is a key factor and it’s exactly what Captain America based it on. Fish and meat was his primary sources of nutrition throughout the day, but he also balanced it out with leafy green salads, fruits and some other complex carbs. Apparently he chowed walnuts on a regular basis along with brown rice and porridge.
The End Result
The end result was a body most men would love to have and women would love to touch. Evans didn’t go out to become a house of muscle, but chose to transform into the kind of physical shape Captain America should be in. Yes, he has natural superpowers that help him, but he still trains very hard. He still needs to jump around and be flexible, otherwise he would just be an open target. Well Chris, you did an amazing job!
