Michael B. Jordan Workout Routine for Creed

Sylvester Stallone said on his instagram account that the Creed 2 will be released on 2018. According to Deadline, Sylvester Stallone is now writing the script for Creed 2, which focuses on the fight between Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Creed and the son of Ivan Drango, the Russian heavyweight who killed Apollo Creed in a match in the 1985 film Rocky IV. Recently Variety reported that Steven Caple Jr. will replace 2015’s Creed director Ryan Coogler on Creed II. Anyway the Rocky team is going to start shooting early next year.

According to Jordan’s trainer Corey Calliet, for playing the role Adonis Creed, Jordan needed to build both muscle and agility. So he extracted the basic fundamentals from athletic training and bodybuilding. That is Jordan’s training sessions consisted of both cardio workouts and circuit training.

He trained for 4 days a week. As a warm up he run for one mile at a moderate pace. Only a little time is allowed to rest in between sets. When reps are arranged in the pyramid order, that is 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 1, then at first you perform 10 reps then take a little break, then do 9 reps on your second set, rest again and so on.
