Jason Momoa Aquaman Workout 2017
Jason Momoa’s workout for Aquaman is nothing but supreme.
Jason Momoa the newest superhero in the DC universe, shows that while his powers may be mocked, needs to have a fully developed next to superman and batman
Now standing at an overpowering 6’ 4” and weighing in from 210- 230 Jason Momoa is an already big and dominant looking man.
Jason Momoa, 32-years old, and best known as Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis, a Conan the Barbarian, and now Aquaman has been called upon in the DC universe. How did he get to Aquaman physique status, while he trained with Gym Jones, who trained Superman as well, this is a workout that will build and sculpt the body he attained, even if you aren’t 6’4”! Here is how to get it.
Leanness Prevails with the Aquaman Workout
Now the big man Jason Momoa standing at 6 feet 4 inches and weighing in over 200 lbs is not out of shape here but he is holding on to a higher level of bodyfat.
Now most people think weighing more is what makes you look the best. People tend to chase numbers on the scale. Such as “I just want to get to 180 lbs” but this approach is just all wrong. You do need to gain weight if you are lacking muscle, but not aimlessly while putting on huge bouts of fat.
How Jason attains his physique is the development of strength, muscle, and its revealed through his leanness. Training adequately for size and density while watching his caloric intake is what creates this superhero physique of Jason Momoa.
The picture above is Jason Momoa standing in at what looks to be around 230 lbs. You can see he is supremely developed already but lacking definition. Some areas of the internet purport how he transformed was to gain 25 lbs of muscle for the role.
That is physically impossible. He is already largely developed. It would take multiple years to add on 25 lbs of more muscle. He may have gained 8-10lbs of lean, dense muscle. Strategically placed in certain areas. My estimations is that he lost 10-15 lbs of fat while putting on 8-10 lbs of muscle. Putting him around 210 – 220.
He does not look bad what so ever in the above photo. But he does not look chiseled as Aquaman should. Now I can guarantee that Jason has a large amount of muscle already on his frame, in the previous photo, that accounts for most of his Aquaman workout and physique. He just needed to train a little bit more with pump work and dial in his nutrition to lose fat.
Here we can see him at a lean, mean, underwater machine.
He is much leaner and his muscle looks much more dense.
Now how do you achieve this?
Structure, consistency, and a plan to gain muscle as well as getting lean.
How much leanness do you need?
Jason Momoa here is about 7-8% body fat. Which is achievable with some focus, consistency, dialing in nutrition, and diligent but smart training.
WHAT IS THE IDEAL BODY FAT PERCENTAGE?
Many of you are probably thinking what is the ideal body fat percentage for a great looking physique. 6-10% body fat for maximum aesthetics. Let’s break them down:
Cut – 9-10% body fat
9-10% body fat percentage will make you look fit. 70% of the population over the age of 25 is considered overweight. That is a real statistic.
So in comparison no matter what this is healthy, ideal, and is a good looking level of leanness. You will look full in clothes and be noticeably great shape. You face and body will lean out and look sharper.
Over 10% body fat and a lot of your muscle will be kind of blurred from fat. The quickest way to look amazing is to get your body fat to 10% or less. Many men are around 12-15% body fat region but look incredibly bulky with a good amount of muscle.
Chiseled – 8% Body Fat
8% body fat is really the area you want to reach to get a chiseled and defined superhero look similar to Jason Momoa for Aquaman. Your abs will be fully visible and muscle definition will pop. You have to have a strong core once this leanness is achieved as well so the hard work you have committed is revealed.
Incorporate 4Everlean’s training three days per week and hitting a good balance of food. The smart training, and coaxing the body into this state, not redlining it makes it much easier for you to hold onto this % for much longer. You can easily achieve this look for a longer amount of time than starving yourself and only holding onto those bodyfat levels for a few days.
Shredded – 6-7% body fat
Getting to 6-7% body fat is where on video Jason Momoa may drop body fat for when he is going to reveal his body on screen. It’s very low and most certainly not somewhere that you want to be all year round. As well, testosterone, strength output and muscle building potential may be inhibited. For crucial scenes he may drop his calories lower to get to this level but it isn’t throughout the whole film.
Below 6% body fat is not ideal or healthy and it looks preposterous. Striations and veins popping is for bragging rights for men, not to impress anyone else.
HOW MUCH DO YOU NEED TO LOSE TO DROP 1% BODY FAT?
This is a common question and it depends. It depends where someone is from baseline. Someone is 20% body fat and they want to get down to 10% body fat. So next you have to assess how much fat do they have to lose. Well let’s say they are 200 lbs.
That’s about 2 lbs of fat loss each 1% . If 1 % represents 2 lbs. And you have to drop to 10% that would be 20 lbs. So if you maintained muscle, and 20 lbs of fat you would be at 10% body fat at 180 lbs.
If you’re 145 lbs, to drop 1% body fat, you’d have to drop 1.45 lbs of fat. These are rough estimates, the most accurate way to measure body fat is with dexascans and caliper tests. The average guy will drop 1% body fat with every 1-2lbs.
The Aquaman Workout for Jason Momoa
Firstly you need to assess the features of the body before you design what exercises and strategies you deploy. So lets assess his physique.
Firstly his key attributes are a well defined chest.
Adding muscle to the top part of the chest is going to make the most myopic modification. A big upper chest creates a manly and dominant look. The third exercises with the shorter rests on the upper body days allow for this full sarcoplasmic growth.
