Michael B. Jordan’s trainer just revealed Jordan’s workout routine for Creed II, and we can’t get enough of it.
Michael B. Jordan has proved himself as a great actor and a fitness freak. In his last movie, he played Erik Killmonger, the arch-nemesis of Black Panther and we witnessed his excellent performance and his physique
This is not a physique he achieved with just the weight loss pills available in the market. To transform into Adonis Creed from Creed II, he had to whip himself into world champion shape.
And this probably would not have been possible without Corey Calliet, Michael B. Jordan’s trainer.
Calliet on an interview said he bulked Michael up on Killmonger and used the bulk to whittle him down for Creed II.
And the results were just mind-blowing. Jordan weighed around 188 to 191 for Creed II and he was ripped.
Michael B. Jordan and Calliet had a simple philosophy for his transformation. Work hard to surpass your previous efforts. Calliet said, ” My goal with Michael B. Jordan is to always make him look better than the last time he was on screen.”
And for Creed II that demanded training boxing hard. Now, some actors use sparring sessions to master the craft, but not Jordan. He already knew how to box from Creed I. For Creed II he focused on his hand movements. He trained with heavy bags and perfected the fight choreography.
He also did bodyweight plyometrics and light weightlifting circuits t

Sit-ups: Sit-ups can be effective when done in this circuit to increase the intensity of the workout and target that rock hard abs where it should be, and where it will be.
In this Howcast video, Max Tapper will show you how to do a situp correctly.
Do 4 sets of 25 reps each. Sit-ups, especially if you’re a beginner, can be taxing on your core. Warm-up your muscles properly to lower the risk of injury.
