So you say that cardio isn’t necessary. Fine. If you want to “look like” Mr. Amell, this program might work.
But if you want to be able to spend two or three days choreographing, rehearsing and filming a complex fight scene, then you damn well better be working on your cardio on an ongoing basis. This will involve a couple of sessions of moderate-intensity cardio workouts per week (jogging or swimming or cycling for 45 minutes to an hour), and a couple of high intensity interval workouts as well. You’ll also need to work on flexibility.
Martial arts training and maybe some parkour wouldn’t hurt.
I’ve changed my sleeping habits lately also. Before I was going to be around 2am and getting up around 7am, terrible I know. The past week or so, I’ve adjusted that a lot. I’m going to bed around 10pm, and trying to get up around 5am. This is when I plan to get my workout in. Get up at 5, head to the gym, workout, hit the showers, and head on into work. I noticed another article you wrote about not eating before you work out. Do you feel you have plenty of energy for your workout when you do that? I’m one who can’t eat when I wake up, so I will probably be working out on an empty stomach also. It makes me nauseous if I don’t wait a couple hours to eat. At the same time, I don’t want to fizzle out during the workout, or miss out on any gains.
