If you saw Deadpool 2, you likely had the same thought I did while eating my seventh bag of buttered kernels. “Wait, is Josh Brolin seriously that ripped now?”
Turns out, the 49-year-old actor did get super shredded to play Cable in the second Deadpool installment.
Josh’s training consisted of tremendous upper body work, especially shoulders, to get that “superhero” look. His trainer, Justin David Lovato, worked in drop sets, high volume sets with high intensity and made Brolin commit to the gym for 2-3 hours a day.
Brolin’s “days off” from weights included cardio and hitting a heavy bag for over 45 minutes.
As far as diet, Josh stopped eating completely. Kidding. He just stopped eating garbage. Josh feed himself fish, eggs, rice, vegetables, and water ever two-and-a-half hours, eating up to 6 meals per day. Josh cut out sugar, pasta, and bread. Duh.
It’s evident from his physique that Josh took his training seriously.
Alright, maybe not always.
