Christ Hemsworth’s the Thor Ragnarok Workout:

He says “I’ve become more comfortable in my skin. And I’ve stopped trying to think about who I have to be, or what kind of personality I need to have to succeed in this business. I’ve learned to truly be myself. The roles I’ve taken on have shaped my physique. It just goes hand in hand with the parts I play.” “What I’ve been doing lately is a lot of functional training at home with limited equipment,” he says. “I do feel that if you work off a Tabata system or a HIIT style, I find that it’s makes for such better improvements and with the ease to get the workouts done.”

Tabata or HHIIT promotes getting heart rate up, burning fat and burning calories. The main difference is that Tabata completes in four-minute increments and completes with higher intensity than other HIIT exercises. Tabata’s rest period is also shorter, always lasting only 10 seconds.

Hemsworth attributes much of his success to a healthy lifestyle with a team of world-class experts in fitness, nutrition and wellness in to his app called Centr.

In his workouts the weightlifting is a key; adding a lot more movement, high- intensity circuits, flexibility and functional training brings his enormous size of transformation as a result.  

Thunder God Thor’s Hammer Circuit

According to Hemsworth his trainer, Luke Zocchi, is the best. He’s worked side-by-side with him and has made the program interesting on every level by keeping things unpredictable.

We found out how Chris Hemsworth Hammer Circuit looks for you to try.

Remember to use both hands as alternate from side to side.

1. Both Hands Hit:  Hit a big tire while holding a heavy hammer in both hands. This will improve the rotational strength in your shoulders and arms.

2. Single Arm Hit: Hit to a big tire with a light hammer. This will develop your hand, wrist, and shoulder stability.

3. Back Twisted Hit: Grip the lighter hammer with one hand, twist it behind your back before lifting it vertically; use just your triceps and slam it down on a tire.

4. Side Hits: Swing the hammer at a big tire from side to side. This will hit the hips and core while strengthening your midsection.

5. Cast Round Hammer: Hold a hammer in one hand, and then cast it around on your opposite shoulder, behind your head, taking it back to the upright position.

6. Overhead Squat Hit: Grab the hammer with both hands and bring it back over your head before hitting down on a tire while bending at the knees (Use a heavy hammer).

7. Double Handed Round: Bring the hammer from over your shoulder while dipping and perform a front lever with it. Bring it back.

Chris Hemsworth’s Diet

Summery From Manformany

Chris Hemsworth’s Diet Plan may change significantly in preparation for his varying roles from year-to- year. His physique certainly didn’t come overnight, and it couldn’t have been achieved without a proper diet plan.

His fitness trainer Luke Zocchi says “food is more important than training.” Chris Hemsworth’s diet plan is just as much about the “when” as it is about the “what.”

He believes it’s really important to keep variety in meals so you can get all nutrients for keeping your body healthy and get the results you’re after with those variety meals help. You find out so many more options for ‘healthy’ eating than you may realise with variety in meals too.

It’s obviously very high in protein and he eats 6 times a day. His protein sources are chicken breast, eggs, steak, fish and cheese. He says he adds more legumes and certain grains in his daily diet plan as well as vegetables and fruit.

Chris’ day always starts with a large green shake made up of 5-6 different types of leafy greens and vegetables, low-glycemic fruits, nuts, seeds, fats and small amounts of sea salt to aid in electrolyte balance. He also takes BCAAs with magnesium/zinc supplement every night before he goes to bed.

As carbohydrates steamed rice is Chris’ favourite, but he also eats oats, wholegrain seeded breads, rice crackers or potatoes.

Here are explanations about why he picks his each food item:

Chicken –Healthy low fat chicken breast (even he loves red meat more).

Fish – Rich in protein and Omega 3 fatty acids, easy to cook and goes well with vegetables as well as salads.

Egg Whites – Most (if not all) bodybuilders will attest that egg whites make for a terrific source of protein.

Brown Rice – Carbohydrates aren’t bad for you when they come in the form of healthy whole grains, oats, brown rice because of low GI and high fibre.

Quinoa – It’s gluten-free. It contains all nine essential amino acids. It’s high in fibre, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin E.

Sweet Potato – This oft-overlooked food is a rich source of fibre. It also hosts a slew of vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C. As if all that weren’t enough, sweet potatoes are also high in beta-carotene, a natural antioxidant.

Vegetables –Broccoli, asparagus, and leafy greens are just a few veggies that will keep you healthy and full of nutrients.

Bananas – Bananas are high in fibre and potassium alike. They boost heart health and even aid with digestion. Chris Hemsworth eats them and so should you.

Whey Protein Shake – They might look kind of gimmicky, but whey protein shakes actually work when it comes to building muscle. It’s then no wonder that every ripped dude at your gym is always chugging one.

Beans – Hemsworth ate beans while preparing for Thor, but didn’t discover their true magic as a rich source of protein until he adopted a vegan diet. The transition made him gassy, but he’ll live. Consider following his lead.

BCAAs with magnesium/zinc supplement: BCAA is a short version ofBranched chain amino acids which they are the building blocks of proteins. In order for your body to re-build and grow new muscle, you need these amino acids. There are 20 in total, 11 of which can be manufactured by the body. However, the body can’t make the other nine, which they are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Isoleucine, valine and leucine an important trio when it comes to maintaining all-important muscle mass. Chicken, egg, cottage cheese, tinned tuna and wild salmon are the best high sources of BCAA’s. As a matter of fact you can’t have plates loaded with chicken, cottage cheese and peanuts in front of you at all times which is where supplements come in.
