Daniel in training for Bond 22

Post by tigerheart » Wed Sep 19, 2007 9:23 am

From the Daily Express today...

"DANIEL Craig has been hitting the gym in a bid to out-hunk himself in the 22nd Bond movie. He’s been bulking up, thanks to Guinness..."

Not sure how much of this is true (if any), but I'd guess that he IS now back in training for the start of filming proper...

Do you want the truth...or something beautiful?

The James Bond Workout - How 007 Gets Toned Muscle

What Would a James Bond Workout Look Like?

The new James Bond, Daniel Craig, has quickly become a fitness icon. In Casino Royale, Craig really showed us what a nice toned physique looks like. In 1999, Brad Pitt attained what could be considered the ideal physique in the movie Fight Club. While both of these guys are in great shape, I would say that Daniel has a bit more muscle. If I was to teach someone how to get a body like Brad Pitt, I would recommend someone do quite a bit more cardio than lifting…maybe cardio for 75% of their time in the gym. To get in James Bond Shape, one would need to do less cardio…maybe for only half of their time in the gym.

How Would 007 Eat to Have Great Muscle Tone?

James Bond is packing a bit more muscle than Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt's Character)did in Fight Club. When Daniel Craig was interviewed about his diet before Casino Royale, he said he was on a high protein diet. Brad Pitt was on the Zone Diet, before Fight Club. The Zone Diet recommends that 30% of daily caloric intake comes from protein. For the James Bond workout, I would bump that number up to 50% and cut back on carbs and fat a bit.

Tyler Durden Ate Less Calories Than James Bond.
Make no mistake about it, Brad Pitt had very low body fat for Fight Club. I am good at estimating body fat percentage and I would say that Brad's percentage in Fight Club was around 4-6%. In Casino Royale, James Bond looks closer to 8% body fat percentage. While both are impressive, Daniel had it a bit easier. In order to get down to the 5% body fat range, you really have to keep calories low. Since James Bond was bigger and more of a realistic body fat percentage, he could allow himself to eat more than Tyler Durden. Compared to Tyler Durden, James Bond has it good. I guarantee you that Tyler Durden eats much less than James Bond…probably 3 really low calorie meals per day.

Daniel Did Traditional Cardio for his James Bond Workout.
I'm a big believer in High Intensity Interval Training. I believe that to get down to a really low body fat percentage like Brad Pitt did in Fight Club, one would need to perform this type of cardio for sure. To get down to 8%, High Intensity Interval Training is probably the quickest and most effective route, but not mandatory. When I heard Daniel Craig getting interviewed, he described the more traditional moderate level of cardio for 30-45 minutes. So in reality, the James Bond Workout was focused on more traditional cardio…even though he probably would have gotten better results with High Intensity Interval Training.

To tell the truth, I think I can't stand 'better results', it was almost unbearable for me to stand the results from the last workout! :twisted: :lol:

LOL!! I just need something to keep me from screaming ( or making strange noises ). Yesterday, I went to see the "Bourne Ultimatum" and they showed the "Golden Compass" trailer and it was very hard not to scream.I guess my emergency kit must contain some kind of silencer :lol: :lol:
