The Henry Cavill Workout transformed him into Superman in Man of Steel. You probably know Henry Cavill from his role as Superman and he looked every part of it, from his crazy good looks to his chiseled physique. He says, that you don’t need heavy weight to get ripped.

But, getting a body like that doesn’t always mean you have to train with massive weights. Cavill knows that there needs to be a balance and he went on Instagram to prove it. You don’t need heavy weight to get ripped.

He posted a picture of him training with what most would consider light dumbbells when he was preparing for his role in the Netflix series “The Witcher“.

Having a little flashback to my days in Budapest on The Witcher and found this photo. I like it because it shows that it doesn’t take huge weights every day to achieve results. I was doing everything I could in a busy busy schedule to try and get something in, whenever I could. During this period I learned that it’s not the weight that matters, it’s the workout.

So if you’re shy about going to the gym because there is always someone next to you using mahoosive weights, don’t be. You do your weights, just make every workout count. You might end up looking better than the fella or lady next to you that’s using those heavyweights.

I also wanted to give a massive shout-out to Adam at Flex Gym. Adam went out of his way to help make sure I could get some training in, no matter the time of day or night, he’d open the gym so I could throw some weights (big or little!) around. Thank you, my friend. I hope to see you soon!

Superman Workout

The Superman workout focuses on olympic lifts, functional training, and metabolic body movements. The Henry Cavill Workout was designed by Mark Twight, the trainer famous for the 300 workout.

The Henry Cavill workout lasts for 2.5 hours a day. It was a 5-6 day routine that lasted 10 hard months. Henry gained over 20 pounds of muscle with the Superman workout. He worked out with kettlebells, dumbbells, and bodyweight.

Henry Cavill is an inspiration to many and his physique speaks volumes about his work ethic. So the most important thing to take away from this is to be consistent and don’t always worry about how much you’re lifting.
