Tom Cruise is one of the most popular actors in the world, and at age 50, he still has one of the best physiques you will ever see. As a skinny young actor, he wasn’t always known for his physique, but when he started doing more action movies, he knew that he had to look the part, and started taking his physical fitness seriously.
He is also one of the few actors that do most of their own stunts, which is another reason he decided that he had to bulk up to play the roles that he does. The fact that he is one of the richest actors in the world also helps out, because he can afford to hire a personal trainer, chef and nutritionist to make sure he is eating right and training properly.
Unlike actors like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who workout to build big muscles, Tom Cruise prefers to have a lean body, and his workouts are designed to give him a body like that. He also credits his nutrition for helping him achieve his body, and is very careful about what he eats.
If you want a physique like Tom Cruise’s, you don’t need a personal trainer of nutritionist to help you achieve it, all you need is the determination to train as hard as you can, and make sure you are eating the right types of food.
Tom Cruise Workout Routine
Tom Cruise likes working out early in the mornings, because it allows him to focus on the other things that he has to do during the day. One of his favorite forms of exercises is cardiovascular exercises. As a kid, he played soccer, so he enjoys running around. Cruise usually runs for a couple of miles each day, even when he is not working out that day.
If he isn’t in the mood to go running, Cruise goes swimming instead, because it also helps to improve your cardio and work out different muscle groups at the same time.
When it comes to the weight training that he does, Cruise is a big fan of doing high reps of lighter weights because it helps to keep his muscle tone. He spends five days in the gym working on different body parts. This allows his muscles to recover before he starts working on them again.
The exercises he does in the gym include squats, bench presses, pushups, curls, plyometrics, leg extensions, and leg curls. He spends an average of 1-3 hours at the gym every day he works out.
Since a lot of the movies he does require him to do a lot of hand to hand combat scenes, Cruise also trains with a professional MMA trainer, which helps him get prepared for the scenes. It also helps him with his cardio.
1200 Calories Per Day Diet
