    I was checking my email and came across this article on how "Hollywood hunks" get and maintain their body. Seeing as though this is realjock I figured it was a good place to share. So check it out, get inspired and maybe find some new regimens or meal plans..

    Yeah, and of course none of them with multi-million dollar contracts would ever 'juice' their physiques, either. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, of course they did, some more than others.

    But, all jokes aside, here's the thing about people working with mega-dollar contracts on the line:

    1: They're going to have personal trainers who evaluate a) where the individual actor is in his training now and b) what he needs to do to achieve the desired role physique goal by shoot time.

    2: Along with above personal trainer, they're also going to have a dietician who will work very closely with the trainer, possibly preparing all the meals the actor requires while prepping for the roll and during the actual film shoot.

    The point being that the program the actor goes through to prep for a role is something custom designed for them by a professional that may have very little benefit to your average gym-going guy. Of course it *could* have some benefit (motivation, for example) and, for sure, doing most anything is better than doing nothing. But anyone who looks at one of these celeb workouts and thinks "gee if I do *that* I'll look like *him*" just isn't thinking clearly. Yeah, sure, if you're starting from the same point and have the same genetics and eat the same meals, etc., etc. If not, well, yeah, something will happen but it won't be *that*.

    This.

    Money is VERY powerful motivation. And millions of dollars PLUS a provided trainer and nutritionalist that are being paid just for you and are tailoring every single thing that goes into your mouth and every single exercise that you do, it's pretty easy to look the way that they do.

    I'm sure they have 'personal' personal trainers and a dietician, but you don't have to knock them. Don't just associate their success in the gym with money, like it's not attainable by the average joe or by hard work.

    It's plenty of guys on here that put their bodies to shame.

    ..and for the record, any workout you find here on realjock, Mens Fitness/Health etc etc is a pre-made workout not specific to the reader. Using your logic these have no benefit either, right?

    1. Paid trainer who costs more than you could ever afford.
    2. Paid nutritionist/dietician/cook who costs more than you could ever afford.
    3. "Special" supplements that you might be able to afford but that you probably don't have access to.
    4. Better genetics/beauty genes that you don't have.

    It also helps to have nothing but time on your hands and plenty of money ... the rest of us just have to squeeze it in between work and home, so it is good to make a schedule of a time when you can squeeze in your work out and stick to it.

    Some of those folks have whole teams of staff to help them. Here's what People printed about Brad Pitt's regimen for Troy. Note the cost: $4000-$5000 per week.


    HOW BRAD GOT THAT BOD
    For his role as the hero warrior Achilles in Troy, Brad Pitt suffered like a mere peon. "[The training] was brutal," says Pitt, "but after three months I finally started to enjoy it." A longtime smoker, Pitt began by giving up cigarettes (he's since resumed) and took up a high-protein, low-carb diet. From there, fitness coach Gregory Joujon-Roche sculpted Pitt with an on-call team, including a nutritionist, chef, masseuse and chiropractor. "We had to tweak Brad into this incredible, godlike shape," says Joujon-Roche, who charges $4,000 to $5,000 a week. "But at the end of the day it's Brad who did the work." That work included weightlifting, running, yoga and sword-fighting, which Joujon-Roche credits for much of Pitt's transformation. "Forget the gym and weights," says Joujon-Roche. "You want to get cut? Take up sword-fighting!"

    Some people are just born perfect. It's like a calling -- a grace they provide to the world and us lesser mortals. They arrive out of the cervix with hair extensions already sewn-in. They can't even look at poor people food without grimacing in a mixture of disgust and pity, but the botox and facial fillers help out with that. They have gaspacho in Spain when they're fifteen, and it changes them forever. They also naturally develop British accents by the time they hit thirty. It's all part of their personal evolution.

    It's exhausting being them.

    "It's killing myself for an hour and a half five times a week."

    ...and paying the nanny, the chef, the tutors, the trainers and nutritionists.

    Y'know what - this statement makes me dislike this woman. This woman probably hasn't worked a day in her life.

    Not a pound. A stone. Pretentious Anglophiles gain stones. It's so much less provincial.

    IDK, how about your overall health as a "VERY powerful motivation" and the extra time you add to your life by maintaining a healthy diet? You can be your own personal trainer and nutritionalist, just read and learn yourself. alittlecuriou... Is right, regardless as o what these celeb's have they still have to show up and do the work and maintain their programs. As much as you can say it's easier for them because it's their job and they have a personal trainer and nutritionalist, you could also say its much harder if they really don't want to do it have to. That's much harder as compared to someone who's doing it because they want to

    They're doing roids. Even Anderson Cooper said so. He said once "they talk about how they eat chicken and they get huge. i eat chicken only and i dont look like that". And if Anderson says so, then you know he's right icon_razz.gif

    icon_confused.gif Wow.. this thread is really disappointing. Its so many weak-minded, weak-willed people posting. ..to look at somebody else and sell yourself short as if you can't achieve.

    Someone once told me .."whether you think you can or you think you can't, either way you're right."

    If you have time to post and check your messages here, you have time to workout. You don't know what to eat? So what! Have you ever heard of Google??? If you aren't interested in obtaining a body like that, then I'm not talking to you. Either way don't discredit the next man.

    Go look at your hotlist.. half the people on there probably have these bodies or better. Are you saying they're juicing too, worth millions?

    C'mon man. Stop the insanity. I just wanted to share some motivational shit and you cower up.

    Looking incredibly fit is THEIR JOB. It's not that they want to do it necessarily, as it is what they HAVE to do for their jobs. For them, working out may or may not be a hobby, but their image is most certainly a big part of their job.

    And I completely understand what Gwyneth Paltrow said.

    Mark Wahlberg says he put on 40lb in 2 months for that bodybuilding film, he went from 165 to 205 at age 41. How many people could do that without *ahem* help? It just defies belief. He is hardly the only example either. It annoys me when they do their articles in Men's Health where they show their diet and training plans, forgetting to mention the bit where they inject themselves in the bottom.

    This is exactly the lie that Hollywood -- along with the cosmetics, fashion, and fitness industries -- have been putting out there for many, many years.

    All of the above rely on manufactured people or genetic freaks, only to convince us that the human body is something that can be molded into perfection if we just try hard enough (read: spend the cash).

    Now that's just freakish and unhealthy. That isn't natural... lol

    Yea, if they make this type of transformation overnight or in a month or two then theres some foul play.

    But outside of this, I'm speaking in general. If you want that type of body you can achieve it too.
