The actor who likes to keep in peak physical form has been known to undertake grueling workouts for his film roles, most notably when he played Wolverine.
Speaking to Bodybuilding.com back in January, Hugh’s trainer, David Kingsbery revealed that Hugh undertook an intense four-week program that included everything from heavy weightlifting to cardio.
‘He's very motivated and adherent, so he doesn't require a drill sergeant or babysitter,’ he said. ‘We train together, and I always push the intensity.’
But, it wasn’t only about the exercise, Hugh also dramatically changed his diet to achieve his ripped Wolverine body.
'I ate very clean, even when I was bulking. Food-wise it's lots of chicken breasts, egg whites, brown rice, spinach, lean steak, avocado, steamed broccoli. But then I'd also gulp down protein shakes,’ Hugh told Bodybuilding.com.
‘If you are what you eat, I am definitely a chicken breast!’ He laughs.
Despite stepping down from the famous role, Hugh is clearly still keeping in tip top shape.
