There are a ton of A-list stars in the CrossFit coach and trainer’s training list such as Tobey Maguire, Channing Tatum, Brad Pitt, and almost all the cast from Marvel movies.

This guy is like my god. He just got the dream job. What the fu** am I doing with my life? Sitting in a fu** YouTube Studio damn it!”

Dr Mike Israetel talks about Henry Cavill’s workout

Dr Israetel commented on one of the exercises that Cavill was doing under the instructions of strength coach Dave Rienzi. He was performing stiff-legged Romanian deadlifts. The founder of RP hypertrophy approved this exercise but immediately disapproved of the other training when it was time for four upper body exercises.

The Brazilian Jujitsu practitioner was excited about the upper body workouts, and said, “Finally a relevant muscle group.” However, the excitement was short-lived. Rienzi made Cavill do an advanced bodybuilding exercise. Dr Israetel questioned, “Everyone gets fancy all the time. Why don’t these Hollywood trainers just do f***ing basic exercises?”
