  • “Stable fitness requires a wide, solid foundation. The deeper that foundation, the more stable that condition will be, and the easier it is to maintain” Trainer Mark Twight, Gym Jones
  • Henry Cavill had to sleep 9-10 hours every night for 5 months. “If you don’t get the sleep, if you can’t recover, then we can’t continue with this training and we won’t achieve the objective” Mark Twight
  • “The HGH and the testosterone secretion that happens during these deep-sleep cycles is super-important”
  • The tail pipe: 1) row 250m at full speed 2) hold 2 x 40Kg kettle-bells in the right position. Repeat 3 times. After this workout your lungs will feel the burn and you will be able to get more out of each subsequent workout thanks to the increased lung capacity and stamina
  • many people wanting to bulk up don’t do enough cardio

  • While training to become superman, Cavill would generally eat between 3500 and 5000 calories including post workout shakes. Cavill explains: “You have got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs. You’ve got keep your hunger levels going”
  • 5000 calories means roughly 6 meals per day
  • Being superman requires inner strength. Twight told Muscle and Fitness: “Genuine accomplishment looks and feels different. It cannot be faked. By doing physically difficult things, by changing his body of his own will, Henry changed his attitude and his bearing. He looked huge. He walked huge. His attitude broadcast his physical capability”.
