TheActiveTimes: Stars Who Sweat for The Screen

Hugh Jackman

Although he appeared almost gaunt in "Les Miserables," Hugh Jackman is best known for looking jacked as Wolverine in the "X-Men" franchise. Those enormous biceps didn’t come from nowhere. Jackman has been working with his trainer Mike Ryan since 1989, according to an interview Ryan gave to Men’s Fitness. For "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," Ryan had Jackman in the gym by 4 a.m. doing up to an hour and a half of both cardio and weight training. To build muscle, Ryan focused on grueling “supersets” that combine compound lifts with isolation ones, “for example, go from a dumb-bell bench press straight into a flye,” he said. During peak training, Jackman was benching up to 315 pounds and leg pressing 1,000 pounds—and eating 6,000 calories a day.
