  • Height: 1.83 m 
  • Weight: 180 pounds 
  • Chest: 47 inch

If you won’t lower your body fat to this level no matter how masculine you are it will be not be impressive.

To play the role Steve Rogers/Captain America, Chris Evans was trained under Simon Waterson. Simon Waterson has been one of the UK’s top trainers for the past ten years. He is now specifically focusing on film industry. Bulking up while cutting those excess fats without any injury put additional pressure on Simon Waterson.

Chris Evans workout routine consists of heavy split lifting routine. That is, in each day you have to train one of your body part. You will be using high weight low rep routine. He also did a lot of body weight exercises. Here we are mainly focusing on classic compound lifts such as squats, dead lifts, bench press, pull ups, chin ups etc.

“Chris hates Leg days” says Simon Waterson. You can’t avoid Leg day, if you do it properly leg day will be the most challenging one. Legs and Glutes are the largest and strongest muscle groups in your body. So you must train them hard. Also by training legs you can maximize your natural testosterone and growth hormone level. That will be an advantage to your bulking routine. Under Simon Waterson’s guidance, Chris Evans managed to add 6 kg of bodyweight and also he decreased his body fat by 4.5%.

No Cardio 

It was a shock to realize that Chris is stayed away from intense cardio workouts. Since his main aim is sizing up, Chris Evan is stayed away from cardio specific workouts. Instead of cardio workouts, he followed circuit training for fat burning.

What is Circuit Training? 

Circuit training is a type of resistance training. A “circuit” is completion of all prescribed exercises in the workout plan. When one circuit is complete, one begins the first exercise again for the next circuit.
