Since his workout routine consist of a lot of function and agility moves now he possess an athletic body rather than a bodybuilder type one. According to Jason Momoa burning more calories is the easiest way to six pack. Just like Dwayne The Rock Jason Momoa is also an early riser. He wakeup at 5.00 am just to lift weights before shooting. That is too hard for a busy guy who living under tight schedule.

He doesn’t do exercises that focus on core muscles. Instead he relied on total body moves that utilizing functional strength.

Lou Ferrigno (actor and former bodybuilder) was recently asked by TMZ what he thought about Jason Momoa’s training? He said “Not many guys can do chinups with putting that much weight.” He also added that “He is training like a warrior”.

According to Jason Momoa if you put on a lot of weight you will burn tons of calories. So pick a weight as high as you can and it will get you shredded and build a lot of muscles.

Since our goal is only to make a physique like Aquaman in minimum time, workout routine containing total body functional movements isn’t appropriate to us. What we want is the physique of Aquaman. But if you’re yearning for a Aquaman physique of your own, you better be prepared to work very hard for it because Jason Momoa’s workout routine is not easy dude. In this workout routine we are including more compound movement exercises and supplementing them with isolation exercises. Because compound movements are more efficient, they work more muscles at the same time.
