For His Newest James Bond Movie — Quantum of Solace — Daniel Craig decided, with the help of Simon Waterson… to change the Daniel Craig workout that he used in his first James Bond movie — Casino Royale.
This Daniel Craig workout was different in that it emphasized more boxing and circuit training than the first one.
Here are the exercises that Craig used in his circuit training routine:
Clean and Jerk — grab a barbell as if you were going to dead lift it and lift it up to your mid thighs. Carefully flip it to your chest and then press it overhead.
Squats — these are traditional squats wide stance and your toes pointing out squat down to about 90° but don’t lockout at the top.
Bench press — this is your traditional barbell bench press. Lower it slowly — to account of three while moving downwards. Take only one second to raise the weight and don’t lockout at the top of the movement.
Chin-ups or pull-ups — taking an overhand grip pull yourself up over the bar if bullets were too difficult for you then use a LAT pull down machine, resistance bands or a chair to help you in performing.
Triceps dips — these are your basic dips, where you go down to where your elbows reach approximately a 90° angle before pressing up again.
Barbell Curls — using a straight bar curl the weight using a full range of motion — no cheating on this one — use strict form.
Lateral Dumbbell Raises — we are arms bent at a 90° angle and using a strict form raise the dumbbells to shoulder height. “Use a light weight and make sure that use a strict form.
The Repetitions and Sets to Be Performed As Part of the Daniel Craig Workout
A total of 4 “giant sets” will be performed…15 reps will be performed on each exercise The exercises are to be performed one after the other with as little rest as possible in between sets. This will keep the heart rate high and ensure a massive amount of calories burned during and after the workout. This workout is to be followed for 6 weeks and can be done 3-4 times per week depending upon your level of conditioning.
