Brad Pitt is one of the most popular and successful actors in Hollywood, and he is known for movies like Troy, Seven, and Snatch. Earlier in his career, Pitt wasn’t known as an action movie type of guy because he wasn’t ripped like men like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, Pitt turned things around when he appeared in Fight Club.
In the movie, Pitt was pretty jacked up, but unlike other actors who bulk up for action roles, Pitt put on lean muscles. Since the movie came out, plenty of guys have been trying to get a physique like that, but most of them don’t know how to go about it. If you are one of those guys, you need to learn about Brad Pitt’s workout routine and Diet for Fight Club, so you can get your body in that type of shape.
Hard Gainer Workout Routine
For Fight Club, Pitt was trying to put on a lot of muscle, but since he is a hard gainer, he had problems putting on weight, no matter how much he tried to eat. His trainer decided that he should just try to put on some lean muscle instead, which was what he ended up doing.
The training he went through consisted of him working out different muscles every day, and eating a lot of protein as well. Pitt also did a lot of high reps while working out, which allowed him to tone his muscles the way he wanted to. Another thing that worked out well for Pitt while training for Fight Club, was that he allowed himself 2-3 days a week to rest. That way his muscles had enough time to recover, which also helped in his muscle definition.
A lot of people swear by free weights when they are trying to gain muscle, but Brad Pitt actually avoided using them. Instead, he used a Nautilus machine because the machines tend to build max resistance where your muscles are strongest.
When talking about the workouts themselves, Pitt said that he did 3 sets of every exercise, 15 reps each time. He also made sure to rest for a minute after each set. For him the key was to find a weight that allows you to complete at least 15 reps. He also advices to make sure you use the correct form, and that you are fatigued by the 15th rep. By the time you do 15 reps easily, it is time to move on to heavier weights.
The exercises he did during training were basic exercises like bench presses, machine flys, pushups, pullups, and incline chest presses.
Pitt’s diet while training for Fight Club consisted of low carb meals, his fatty food intake was also low, but his protein intake was very high. He also included a lot of vegetables in his diet, and supplements like Whey protein, creatine, multivitamins, and thermogenic acid. Pitt made sure to avoid eating junk food while he was in training, and it obviously worked out for him because he reportedly had only 6% body fat when he filmed the movie.
