Tom Hiddleston’s star seems to keep rising every year, and there’s no stopping the handsome Brit rumored to be on the list of contenders to play the next Bond since Daniel Craig has said he’d rather slash his own wrists than play Bond again. Hiddleston is likely best known for his role as Loki in the Thor movies and is currently filming the next one in the franchise, Thor: Ragnarok. Taylor Swift’s ex has been busy because he has another movie coming out, Kong Skull Island, which is set to release in March.

Fitness isn’t an issue for Hiddleston. The 35-year-old is already in shape, so playing roles that require his physique be in top form is not a huge stretch. Reports have circulated widely over the past few months that Hiddleston is so passionately set on getting the Bond role that he has been upping his fitness routine to ensure he is in proper shape. Bulking up is a key initiative where exercise is concerned at this point.

Apparently, the star has been overhauling every part of his diet plan and workout routines. His main competitor for the part is rumored to be Idris Elba, who costars with Hiddleston in Thor: Ragnarok. The movie releases next November, so there is still a long time to wait before we see the two together in action.

Tom Hiddleston’s Gym Workout and Strict Diet

Hiddleston has always had an amazing physique, typically lean and trim. But lately, his body has morphed into something far more buff and muscular, thanks to the roles he has been taking on. This past year, especially, has seen him shape his body into a tighter mass of lean muscles.

His role as Loki requires him to be in top shape. The upcoming movie will likely have a lot of action scenes that require a great deal of physical stamina and endurance since Hiddleston reportedly does many, if not most, of his own stunts.

He does workouts with the goal of being as fit as he can be in order to do his job to the very best of his abilities. Many scenes in the Marvel comics movies can be strenuous and require a lot of physical effort, so fitness levels need to be optimal, especially the cardiovascular system to withstand all that jumping, leaping, and running he does in these movies.

Hiddleston reportedly works out six times a week at the gym and runs almost every day. He absolutely loves to run, and this summer pictures were all over social media of him running on an Australian beach. Anything cardio seems to be what this Brit loves to focus on. Hiking is also an activity he enjoys when possible.

His diet is tight and clean. It’s a strict diet that includes a lot of lean proteins. Sugary and alcoholic drinks are off limits, as is junk food and processed foods. Tom Hiddleston sticks to a high-protein diet that includes broiled chicken, turkey, brown rice, sweet potatoes, and other vegetables. Water is his go-to drink so he stays hydrated.

No word yet who will be the next Bond, but Hiddleston is definitely a great pick for the iconic 007 role.
