Daniel Craig Workout

 

Daniel Craig workout routine focuses on a comprehensive training routine that works out his entire body. He is a true muscle man and it's no wonder why all the girls have a special affinity for James Bond and his abs when he takes his shirt off.


Daniel Craig's routine provides this new 007 with endurance, speed, strength but doesn't give him unsightly size and bulk. "I needed to get as fit as I possibly could [for Quantum of Solace]," Craig told the British press at the time. "Although I was big and muscled last time, I was actually not as fit as I am now."

 

 

 


Craig's intense circuit routine helps his body develop lean
muscle mass. He has one of the best chest and trap muscles
in Hollywood.

 

 

 

As provided by Men's Health, every Monday and Friday Craig performs a full-body power circuit and then the rest of the week he hits every body part including chest, back, shoulders, arms, and legs. Circuit training is a workout that combines cardiovascular fitness and resistance training. With circuit training, you can get maximum results in minimum time and it will get your metabolism soaring. As you can see below, Craig does a lot of compound exercises in his routine, doing exercises like the clean and press, dip, and squat, among others. Compound movements are exercises that work several different muscles and joints at the same time. Compound exercises engage the largest and strongest muscles of the body. As a result, they provide the largest muscle gains and stimulate the release of testosterone and growth hormones. They are the best types of exercises to build lean muscle mass. Isolation exercises have their benefits too, especially when it comes to muscular definition, but compound exercises should be done more often in most routines. He also devotes two full days to stretching. Keeping your muscles and joints loose and flexible are very important when it comes to fighting off injury.

Daniel Craig's diet consists of 3 meals and 2 snacks per day. He also makes sure that he has a post-workout snack to refuel his glycogen and replenish his muscles with much needed nutrition. He drinks 2 liters of water each day along with 2 pieces of fruit. He avoids simple refined carbs after 5 pm. As you can see below, Craig gets an ideal amount of nutrients in his diet, especially when it comes to his protein. He definitely has enough protein in his diet to recover and build his muscles up from his vigorous workout.

 

A typical day looks like this:

Breakfast: 2 Poached Eggs, 2 Pieces of Whole Wheat Toast
Snack: Protein Shake with fruit
Lunch: Meat/Fish with Brown Rice or a Baked Potato
Snack: Protein Shake or Yogurt with Nuts
Dinner: Meat or Fish with green vegetables like salad, spinach, or broccoli

 

On a more energetic note, Craig made sure he didn't restrict himself too much, allowing to drink alcoholic beverages on Fridays and Saturdays.
