Chris Hemsworth Reveals His 'Brutal' Training
In an interview with Disney, Thor: Love and Thunder star Chris Hemsworth explained the brutal training regimen that got him so jacked for his latest Marvel role.
Hemsworth revealed the target weight for him to reach for Love and Thunder was "quite a ways above where [he'd] been before."
The actor called the process a "really fun exploration" as they experimented with different exercises and caloric adjustments to get him to the right level and "hold it for four months:"
"This was particularly hard because the target weight we aimed for was quite a ways above where I’d been before. This was probably the biggest and fittest I’ve ever been.
We had 12 months where I was at home just training and puppeteering the body and manipulating. We’d try more swimming, then try more martial arts, and adjust calories.
It was a really fun exploration. I got really big and fit, but then just had to hold it for four months, which was very hard."
