Sylvester Stallone has never been mistaken for anything other than an action star. His impressive physique and rugged good looks have earned him top dollar at the box office. However, what makes him still viable at his advanced age? His secret: his big guns.
The big guns were talking about are his impressive biceps which only a few can match in terms of size and strength, and he did not get these overnight.
Sly has been a fitness buff even before he entered show business. This is a good thing since the first notable role he ever starred in required him to bare his awesome physique in Rocky. Not only did he have to look the part of the incredible boxer but he also had to showcase impressive fighting skills. That started a string of films displaying him as an action star with an impressive body to boot.
Throughout the years, Sly has continued to develop his body making it bigger and more muscular. To get his body you have to concentrate most of your effort into weight gain as well as serious weight training exercises to develop huge muscles and strength. Sly follows a strict celebrity workout regimen targeting specific parts of his body per day.
He divides the day to work out these specific body parts. mornings are for chest, back and abdominal training. In the afternoon, he focuses on his shoulders and arms as well as more abdominal training. This immediately pumps his upper body up to a massive size while maintaining a slim waist profile. He has the same workout routine for Wednesdays and Fridays.
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays are for working on the lower part of his body as well as defining his shoulders. This means working on his calves and thighs in the morning and in the afternoon he focuses on his rear delts and traps. Sundays are for rest to allow his muscles to rebuild themselves and prepare for another week of intense training. All throughout the week, Sly engages in cardiovascular exercises to enhance his durability and stamina.
His most famous biceps are worked out on a constant basis alternating the manner of curls he performs and the weight of the sets. He employs an escalating variation to prepare his arms for the shock of performing supersets every end of the week. Furthermore, Sly sticks to a very strict diet packed with super proteins and calories to ensure that he gains mass and has the energy to survive each grueling work out session!
