Jonathan Majors was fully dedicated in his diet and in the gym.
Jonathan Majors was tasked with playing a bodybuilder in Magazine Dreams and his dedication to the role was shown by his physique. In a recent interview with Variety, Majors revealed that he had to eat 6,100 calories a day for four months in order to put on enough size to play the role.
Majors took on the role of Killian Maddox. He also will have a part in Creed III so his physique transformation came at a good time. During his interview, Majors revealed that he trained twice a day for two hours and his diet plan consisted of six meals.
“I’M PLAYING KILLIAN MADDOX. PLAYING HIM YOU DON’T FUCK AROUND. WHAT ENDED UP HAPPENING IS I WOULD TRAIN TWO HOURS, TWO TIMES A DAY FOR THE MOVIE AND A THIRD TIME AFTER WRAP. MEANWHILE, YOU EAT SIX TIMES A DAY. LOTS OF CHICKEN. LOTS OF ELK. THAT’S JUST FOR ME. I LIKE IT.”
Jonathan Majors Worked Out Multiple Times A Day
Jonathan Majors stands at 6-foot-2 and weights 202 pounds. This was the diet and workout plan necessary for him to put on the necessary size for the role.
“I’M 6 FEET TALL. I’M 202 POUNDS. IN ORDER TO SUSTAIN THAT AND TO GROW THAT YOU HAVE TO EAT AS MUCH PROTEIN THAT YOU WEIGH. I ATE 6,100 CALORIES A DAY FOR ABOUT FOUR MONTHS. THAT INCLUDED THE PRE-WORK AND THE POST-WORK OF ‘CREED III.’”
Jonathan Majors grew up as an athlete so he is no stranger to the gym. His most recent roles have required a different level of dedication but this is something that he was comfortable doing.
Moving forward, Majors admitted that he cut back his workout to once a day rather than running three-a-days.
“I PLAYED FOOTBALL IN TEXAS. I GOT AN APPETITE. I REALLY LIKE BEING PHYSICAL. I LIKE HIKING AND RUNNING. I’VE GOT DOGS. I’M ONLY 33… I GOT TO DO SOMETHING TO STAY WITH IT. I DON’T WORK OUT THREE TIMES A DAY ANYMORE. JUST ONCE A DAY.”
