Some Hollywood stars, such as Christian Bale, are famous for their body transformations for different roles they played, while others are well-known for having a fit physique in general. The latter group includes Chris Hemsworth, a.k.a Thor, and Henry Cavill, a.k.a. the Man of Steel. Cavill, who plays Geralt of Rivia (the Witcher) in the hit Netflix series has shared a snippet from his full body workout that got him in shape for the role (yet again).
After packing on quite a few pounds of muscle mass to portray the Man of Steel in 2013, Cavill once again returned to the gym to do the same for the role of the Witcher, and his full body workout to get in shape this time seems no less intense than that for Superman. If you’d like a body like Geralt of Rivia or, erm, Kal-El of Krypton, you have come to the right place.
Needless to say, if you are planning on bulking up like Cavill, you’ll need to eat a lot more than you usually do, and we are not talking about gorging yourself on pizzas and beer. We hope you like eggs and steak. For breakfast. Every day for six months. If you think you are dedicated enough to bulk up and work out like Henry Cavill, read on.

Henry is famous for his roles in movies such as Mission:Impossible, Superman and most recently, the Netflix hit-series The Witcher. Cavill is also famous for looking like a Greek god in Beast Mode. He reportedly stands 6″1′ tall and weighs around 200 lbs. This puts him in the ‘obese’ BMI category, technically, but we all know the extra pounds are not fat but muscle mass. And lots of it.
Unlike what many people think, Cavill’s ‘super built’ phase didn’t start with Superman: Man of Steel. No, he had a pretty chiselled body in the 2011 movie the Immortals, when he was around 28 years old. Admittedly, he didn’t look as big as he does now. Henry Cavill’s workouts have got progressively more brutal as time has gone by.
It is worth mentioning straight away that no workout alone would’ve bulked Cavill up to a level where he is now. To pile on muscle mass, Henry was eating loads and kept a strict diet too in order to speed up his muscle building efforts. According to manofmany, his diet consisted of industrial amounts of protein – some of it sourced from the best protein powders – and carbs, both being essential for muscle building and recovery.
Another source also confirms this by mentioning steaks and eggs for breakfast and multiple lunches to keep energy levels high throughout the day….
