In June we got a little taste of what went into turning actor Josh Brolin into the ripped cyborg Cable for Deadpool 2.

It was a little light on the details, but now Brolin’s trainer Justin Lovato has gone ahead and shared the crazy intense back workout he put the actor through to get him jacked for his roles in the Marvel universe.

“When we got that phone call saying that he booked this role and it was going to be one of the biggest roles for one of the biggest movies, we had to dive right in,” Lovato told Men’s Health. “He took it real seriously… training three hours a day.”

Taking it real seriously is an understatement.

While Lovato offers the entire workout program in comic book form, Cable Built, on his website, here are some of the exercises he did to help you get started.
