The Legend of Tarzan’s Alexander Skarsgard Workout and Diet Plan

For his role in ‘The Legend of Tarzan’, Alexander Skarsgard followed a strict diet to bulk up and pack on muscle.

Skarsgard is the new Tarzan, and playing the jungle hero means he has to spend a lot of time with his shirt off, in just a loin cloth. Getting in shape was critical for Skarsgard, and that meant following a very strict diet and workout routine for nine months.

In fact, the diet was so strict that Skarsgard calls it his “misery diet,” as he hated having to follow it for nine months. The diet eliminated all types of sugar and fast carbs, meaning that Skarsgard couldn’t eat bread, pasta, or pizza.

Wolverine Star Hugh Jackman’s Workout and Diet Plan

When Hugh Jackman needs to get in shape to play Wolverine, he takes his fitness and diet to the next level. In order to get ready for the role he used intermittent fasting and isolation exercises to get lean and big in a hurry.

So if you want to get in shape, improve your health and either shed pounds or pack on the muscle, read through these celebrity diets to get some motivation for your own healthy eating. Most of these diets are easy to follow and implement in your own day-to-day life.
