No of course not that is ridiculous anyone could see if some 6 foot skinny 160lbs actor got turned into a 200lbs of solid spartan muscle, cgi is good but not that good, at least not yet.

They have simply made exsisting muscles more defined by shading areas and creating artificial lighting to make certain muslces seem more ripped than they really are by creating deeper shadows. While all those actors cleary did train to acheive a very high level of fitness, they were simply not as impressive in real life as on film.

You would be shocked how much cgi is used in movies these days, even in movies you wouldn't expect had any special effects whatsoever.

I compared them because this is a boxing forum, the actors did weight lifting and plyometrics. I was just pointing out that Hagler's routine is more oriented to boxers here than the movie.

The guy who did the men's health interview said he couldn't train for 6 months- a year after filming because he was overtrained. To be honest actors that have to bulk up usually take roids. This is because they have a short space of time to get in shape and they can't risk not getting the right physique before the deadline.

Post a link to a page where it says an actor is taking roids to gain mass. If you can't don't post stupid shit like that, it makes it look like they didn't have to work hard. Even people taking steroids have to eat and train like a madman to gain mass, you don't suddenly get huge.

Of course you have to work hard on roids, but it helps you gain muscle whilst loosing fat at the same time. Have you ever tried going from 160 to 200+ in 6 months whilst simultaneously loosing bodyfat until your totally ripped? Even when roy jones (an athlete with very good genetics) went up to heavyweight there were suspicions that he took the balco stuff. So are you telling me that actors can do the same thing with this shitty 300 routine and a few protein shakes?

You think a movie company with millions of dollars behind it couldn't get the best 'supplements' to get is actors in shape?

1. The actors dedicated months of their lives to pure training and eating what they were told and when to eat it.
2. At least research what you're trying to argue. The actors from 300 didn't have a set routine, they never done the same routine twice, every single day was different.
3. Most didn't have to gain much mass, specially not 40+ pounds.

They can help you increase lean muscle whilst keeping fat down, so your bodyfat % goes down.

And I misread the article I thought it said that 1 guy went from 160 to 200.

And there was nothing in the mens health article that said the actors took roids. It just said they were burnt out after that training. The guy said he couldn't train after that for 6 months- a year and lost the gains he made. So these workouts aren't ideal for the average guy, you wouldn't be able to sustain the hard work.

But what have the "300 workout" have to do with boxing training?

I also read the article in Men's Health, and the guy told that he was overtrained after the movie. So it is not a good work out routine for a boxer, is it?

Also in boxing it is not about looking good, it's about creating the best body possible for combat.

The 300 workout is something that's not too bad as a mini test of yourself once in a VERY, VERY long time. Make it a regular routine and you'll fry your CNS.

And yes, most of the guys' abs look like that because of the lighting they did to accent shadows in certain areas. Not saying they didn't work hard and diet like mad because they did, but let's keep a little common sense huh?

average actors? probably not, they can and do use body doubles as well for the close ups anyways

I forget where I read it at, but I remember them saying that for some movie with brad pitt where there was a scene of his ass, that they actually used a body double for it. All the women fans were duped.

So probably not a lot of hardcore steroids unless youre talking about Stallone who is ****ing 60 years old and just got busted for bringing HGH on a plane
