Have you ever been watching a movie with your partner and the hunky Australian actor Chris Hemsworth comes on screen with his top off, leading to your partner swooning over his perfect body? Has this led you to wonder just what it is that this Hollywood star does to look so great? Well wonder no more.
Celebrity personal trainer Luke Zocchi is the man who has been helping Chris Hemsworth to get that perfect body for so long now and he has decided that the time is right to share his secrets. Luke gives plenty of different advice, depending on exactly what it is you want to do, focusing on exactly what it is that Chris does to look like a God.
Zocchi explained, "If you're lifting weights, stick to compound exercises that recruit more than one muscle group to build full-body strength, rather than focusing only on your biceps, for example. Squats and deadlifts are classic compound exercises. You can take it to the next level with barbell thrusts – where you combine a full front squat with an overhead shoulder press."
He added, "With cardio, stick to HIIT style training and incorporate weights like kettlebells for added resistance. If you do your cardio workouts in the gym, pick equipment that challenges you – my favourites are the rowing machine, assault bike, stair climber or a simple treadmill on a heavy incline."
Luke continued, "If it's the Chris Hemsworth style upper-body strength you're after, pay particular attention to pull-ups, bench presses (pushing the weight bar upwards, while lying on a weight training bench), overhead press (this entails using your shoulders and arms to lift the weight over your head) and shoulder-width dips (mainly working the triceps). You'll need to ensure you have good form to get results. For your lower body, focus on squats and deadlifts to build a strong foundation."
So there you have it. If you have been admiring the body of Chris Hemsworth for a while and wondering how you can get a body like that, then all you need to do is follow this advice and you will be well on your way to that hot Hollywood bod. Remember though, it comes with hard work and dedication and is not just going to come over night. Good luck and let us know how you get one.
