There's a few good reasons  is a bona-fide Men's Health icon. Successful, intelligent, hard-working and (of course) in great shape, the 49-year-old has become syonymous with his roles as .  With the role demanding Hugh Jackman to be in peak, fighting-fit condition for a large swathe of his life, he's definitely the right man to give you a few nuggets of workout wisdom. 

Hugh Jackman Workout Tips

Below, you'll find Hugh Jackman talking you through his workout, his training tips and easily-digestible nutrition hacks. Starting today, you'll be clawing yourself into great shape.

1. Berserker rage

When it’s just you and the bar, you’ve got to get angry to shift more steel. “My first five reps, I’m fine. But for rep eight, nine, 10, I think ‘Wolverine’.” Channeling his inner berserker helps Jackman lift big, from deadlifts to squats. “If I’m training on my own I scream – people look at me. They think, ‘God, this guy!’”

You too can let the beast out of its cage. The Drexel University health sciences programme found yelling mid-set applied an extra 10% of force during resistance training.Stick some heavy metal on your playlistand learn to love turning up the volume, providing you don’t mind the odd looks.

(function(d) { function consentCookie () { return document.cookie.indexOf('_evidon_consent_cookie') >-1 ? true : false ; } var magikarp = { 'data': (``), 'blacklisted': false, 'whitelisted': false }; if (consentCookie() && !magikarp['blacklisted'] ) { d.write(magikarp['data']); } else if (magikarp['whitelisted']) { d.write(magikarp['data']); } })(document)

 

2. Protein, protein, protein

It’s no secret that good quality protein is the cornerstone of mutant gains. If your diet doesn’t match your gym work, it’s time to step up. “You need 1.3g of protein per 1lb of target bodyweight,” says Jackman. This equates to roughly 2g per kg.

(Related: The beginner's guide to protein shakes)

But how do you fit that much protein into your diet? Protein shakes. “I always keep a protein shake by my bed,” says Jackman. “If I happen to wake up at night, I down it before I go back to sleep. It keeps the muscles repairing and the metabolism going.” Opt for casein protein overnight instead of whey, as its slower release feeds your muscles all night long.

Remember, supplements are only there to help. They should never be a substitute for real food. A well-rounded diet has more nutrients, fibre and minerals than supplements, and will help with your digestion. Get your diet right, first. That's key.

3. Limit your carbs

While carbs are necessary to fuel a workout properly, beware the ides of starch. Processed carbohydrates will increase fat storage instead of fuelling your next deadlift. Jackman opts for whole grains in the morning to stock up on energy all day.

 

“I have oatmeal for breakfast, and brown rice or yams for lunch,” he says. After 3pm, Jackman institutes a blanket carbohydrate ban, as that’s when his metabolism slows down. It minimises the chances of fat storage. “If you just made that one change and did nothing else, you’d lose 11lb (5kgs) in the first month.” Follow the Wolverine diet plan and clawsome results are guaranteed.

4. Play the long game

Bulking up quickly with chemical aid will only create unsustainable gains, or beach muscles filled with water weight. Jackman, ever the pragmatist, opts for true strength.

(Related: How much muscle can I really build quickly?)

“I didn’t want to bulk up quickly,” he tells us. “I wanted to do it slowly so I could look after my heart at the same time.” Steroid use has long correlated with high blood pressure and heart failure. With no other chemical than BCAAs, Jackman went on the hunt for lifelong muscle. “I started training a year before the film [X-Men] began. When you’re changing your body, it takes that sort of time to make permanent changes.” Don’t be disheartened with slow progress. If it’s good enough for  Hugh Jackman, it’s good enough for everyone.

5. The X-factor

Actors, boxers and athletes alike are notorious yo-yo dieters, training for a specific role or match. Not Jackman. “There is nothing on my radar to train for at the moment, but I’m in the gym five days a week.”

Is this a tad overzealous? Perhaps not. A study in theBritish Journal of Sports Medicinefound daily exercise slashes your ‘death risk’ by 40%. Smashing your leg muscles on Friday, for example, only to follow it up with a sedentary weekend, robs you of health benefits like lower blood pressure and improved brain chemistry.

Can’t face the barbell again? Go swimming as a form of low-impact active recovery.
