Chris Pratt - The Guardians Of The Galaxy Workout...

Chris Pratt is ready to go galactic in his new movie The Guardians Of The Galaxy. You may have seen some pictures of him topless already as he looks great for the role, but how exactly did he get into epic shape? Well, I love a Marvel movie and there is nothing better for me than to research into how he done this. Without further ado, here is the low down...

How He Did It

Pratt appeared on the front cover of Mens Fitness Magazine topless showing off his incredible physique which required a lot of hard work and dedication. You know as well as I do, nothing comes free in this world and he would have needed to be tough on himself to reach this type of physique. He dropped over 60 pounds for his role as Peter Quill in the movie which is set to be released in the UK this Summer. He had a nutritionist to hand called Phil Goglia, a Personal Trainer Davey Gaver and when Pratt released a topless selfie it seemed to go viral over the internet.

What Gaver Had To Say

Pratt started training with Gaver back in February 2013 with 4-6 sessions a week and if he felt up to it, Pratt would also do some extra sessions on his own. Gaver says that 'Chris' athleticism is amazing and is incredibly disciplined. You don't have to push him, he is the type of client you have to pull down. If you were to see him in the gym you would think he was training for the NFL''. Pratt performed bodybuilding type moves for the majority of his sessions and towards the latter stages of the training, he moved onto circuits, swimming, mountain biking and HIIT. These conditioning workouts helped him lose more body fat and give him the right look for the upcoming movie. Pratt is very serious when it comes to looking the 'part' for a role so he knew that he wanted to pile on more muscle, look more toned and be more fit.
