Want to be as shredded as Brad Pitt was when he played wackjob Tyler Durden in Fight Club? Who wouldn’t? Follow this workout routine and diet plan and you’ve got a shot.

Oh, and unlike the club, there is no rule about not talking about the Fight Club workout routine and diet plan so feel free to share. Or not, up to you.

Back in 1999 when the film hit theaters, not only were people taken aback by the amazing story, they were also very impressed with just how ripped Brad Pitt was in the movie.

Reportedly, Pitt, who stands 5-foot-11, got down to around five or six percent body fat, putting him somewhere in the 155 pound range – almost all of it muscle.

So not only was Pitt acting like he was in a fight club, he damn well looked like he could have been in one as well.

According to Fitness B&W here’s how he did it…
