The latest installment of Sylvester Stallone’s iconic ‘Rocky’ franchise introduces a new character, Adonis, the illegitimate son of Apollo Creed — portrayed in previous movies by Carl Weathers. And it was none other than Michael B. Jordan taking on the mantle of the next generation. There was much buzz about the movie which saw Jordan working again with Ryan Coogler, director of ‘Fruitvale Station,’ the movie which first launched him from unknown to one of Hollywood’s hottest you stars. But, that said, Jordan had quite the proverbial tall order to not just deliver a convincing acting performance in the boxing scenes but to look the part.
He more than succeeded and his amazing, ripped physique has been buzzed about, and will continue to be. It’s one of those transformations that will draw notice not just now, as a hot topic, but for years to come.
The actor was recently on the cover of Men’s Fitness and was very much the embodiment of just that with his sculpted torso on full display. Now, this time around, it’s the diet and workout routine that’s getting the focus.
Yes, we’ve heard tidbits before of of his daily diet and training regime, but now we’ve got the full scoop thanks to Men’s Journal. Every once of protein and carbs, every session of cardio, and every weight lifting rep.
There’s no magic pill here. As Michael B. Jordan himself said in a recent interview, “I stripped down my diet completely. Grilled chicken, brown rice, broccoli and a lot of water. I worked out two to two three times a day, six days a week. And … if you do that consistently for about 10 months your body will change.”
In Men’s Journal, Jordan said of his grueling training routine under the guidance of trainer Corey Calliet, “I felt muscles I never knew I had.”
And it’s no wonder, when one takes a look at all that Jordan was up to with his twice and thrice daily workouts which included a 45-60 minute cardio session daily and . Abs were targeted every other day with crunches and leg raises. He also did work with weights with plenty of supersets. His diet was an ode to clean eating, with the standard bodybuilder’s lean protein and complex carbs spread out in six meals, four of which are comprised of protein shakes.
