Celebrity Workouts Daniel Craig

The Daniel Craig Workout

It takes a lot of grit and determination to have the perfect James “007” Bond body, but Daniel Craig was up to the challenge. Diet was a huge part of buffing up – he would even venture to say 75 percent. From here on all, it’s all lean protein, leafy greens, whole grains and omega-rich fats. But who could tell Bond he’s not allowed a glass of red wine or a pint of Guinness? Craig still indulges and eats full meals, he says, so he didn’t really “diet” per se, but he does make healthy choices. The bottom line was that he had to be happy to pull off his role as the sexy, suave James Bond and if that meant the occasional indulgence, then so be it!

But let’s get down to business. At the gym, you’ll need to limit your cardio and bulk up on weight lifting with loads of repetitions. While you do the Daniel Craig workout exercises that will be mentioned in this article, complete them with extreme force and focus, squeezing and contracting for each rep. Be sure to avoid “the big three” exercises: Squats, Bench Presses and Deadlifts. These common exercises will add muscle in the wrong areas – notably the butt, hips and thighs.

For rounded pectoral muscles and shrink-wrapped abs, you’ll need to focus your efforts on four big circuits and 15 repetitions of each exercise, while avoiding a lot of resting in between different exercises. In other words, you want to keep your heart rate elevated and your fat-melting machine burning all workout long. Save the weekends for lighter cardio work like swimming or running and time to recover and regenerate.

During your Daniel Craig workout circuit training, you’ll be doing Jerks, Squats, Pull-ups, Dips, Barbell Curls, Lateral Dumbbell Raises, Incline Dumbbell Presses, Dumbbell Lateral Raises, Incline Pec Flys, Barbell Bicep Curls, Dumbbell Hammer Curls, Lying Tricep Extensions, Dumbbell Tricep Kickbacks, Rope Tricep Pulldowns, Dumbbell Lunges, Leg Extensions, Prone Hamstring Curls, Standing Cable Glute Supersets on the Abductor Machine, Standing and Seated Calf Raises, Hanging Leg Raise / Oblique Cable Twist Supersets, Standing Cable Oblique Twists, Incline Pushups, Weighted Knee Raises, Weighted Stepups and Tricep Dips.

It may sound like a lot – and it is. You may want to make a comprehensive chart for yourself or find yourself a personal trainer who can guide you through the different movements.

Daniel Craig joked, saying, “I’m obsessive enough about getting fit, it’s ridiculous. I’m 40 now and I’ve got to stop doing it. I have to start getting fat and old!”
