Since his early childhood in Mansfield, England, Jason has always excelled in sports and was an overall athletic kid.
That has proven to be a base from which he would continue to build up his physical abilities, maintain his athleticism and pursuit new challenging physical endeavors.
He has just recently turned 52 and considers himself to be in the best shape of his life. He looks more cut and jacked than ever before.
Here’s some trivia for you. During his childhood years, he was competing as part of the National Diving Squad of Great Britain for 12 years.
If that doesn’t give you a strong core, I don’t know what does. He also competed for England’s team at the 1990 Commonwealth Games.
His breakthrough in movies happened about nineteen years ago, in 1997, when he was 31 years old, with the role of “Bacon” in the cockney gangster film “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” directed by Guy Ritchie.
He was incredibly fit then, and twenty years later he still is.
You might ask how he does it. Well, for starters, he doesn’t let stuntmen do his stunts. He mostly does them by himself.
That means that he must be fit, otherwise, he would be unable to do them. He isn’t simply training to look good in front of the camera, he needs to be able to do those stuff whenever they’re asked of him.
Also, his diet consists of 90% “clean food”. And that is essential to his fitness.
He also says that he is, by all means, not a vegan, but that he sometimes visits some vegan restaurants where he would occasionally try some steamed veggies and brown rice.
He says vegan food makes him feel good, as well as vegan liquid recipes.
Jason Statham: Workout Routine for Speed, Agility and Athleticism
He has two golden rules when it comes to his workouts:
1) Rule number one is never to repeat the same workout. It would not be possible to follow through a workout regimen without repeating the listed exercises but you should try and keep every workout session at least slightly different from the last one.
2) Rule number two is that you write about every rep, set and exercise you did.When you log your workouts you will know exactly what you need to do in your next workout to beat yourself whether in the form of more reps, bigger load or bigger time under tension. That way you can actually measure how much stronger and faster you are becoming.
Having a plan where all your lifts are recorded keeps you accountable and focused on precise goals in your workout. Failing to plan is planning to fail.
