In a recent interview with Dr. Peter Attia, the actor talked about playing the shaky superhero and becoming more and more bodybuilder and fitter with each new film.

He told Attia that in the film his coach invited a bodybuilder to join him in his spare time, giving him amazing advice on muscle growth.

Jackman said I think in order for me to be in his situation, you just have to break him. “He starts and makes everything shine like it’s fun.”

bodybuilder tips

Hugh Jackman told Peter Attia that a bodybuilder suggested he train with lighter weights as he prepares to play Wolverine in the X-Men movies so that he should also train with lighter weights should start.

It based this training advice on studies that have found that light training can complement a heavy workout with slightly less stress on the joints, tendons, and ligaments. Even Martins Lisse, the former owner of the World’s Strongest Men position, takes time from heavy lifting to lift light to prevent injury and recover.

By the time the X-Men movies had completed their current replays, Wolverine’s character was expected to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sometime. Hardy, along with Taron Egerton and Daniel Radcliffe, will be featured alongside a different actor. But Jackman has been teasing that there’s still a way to get involved.

He recently shared a photo of himself with Marvel, Kevin Feige’s boss, on Instagram, suggesting he might join Fox or Marvel Divide. While following Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, he might not be quite ready to walk away from Logan.
