Hugh Jackman has always flaunted a Godly physique whenever he appeared as Wolverine on-screen. It’s certainly not easy for an actor to carry out the gigantic responsibility of playing such an important character over so many years. However, Jackman performed it with ease and always tried to look the best in the character. It is a result of an intense workout regime and sheer hard work that has enabled The Prestige actor to be hailed as one of the best superhero castings ever.

Hugh Jackman‘s intense workout regime also shows that his system is very ‘old-school’ and highly organic. The X-Men: Days of the Future Past actor spoke about how he absolutely hates his leg days. The Australian star believes that maintaining a physique is far easier than starting everything from scratch. So the 54-year-old makes sure to maintain a fit body with the correct blend of workout and a proper diet.

Soon after the upcoming Deadpool 3 was announced, some workout photos of Hugh Jackman took the fandom by storm. The actor boasted a monstrous physique and still had the charm with which he aced the character for such a long period. When he discussed his workout routine with the LA Times, the actor admitted that the favorite exercise that he can never leave behind.

“My least favorite is the legs. … I do quite a few chin-ups and rows. I do mostly old-school lifting with a lot of squats. I actually do more front squats than I do back squats, and I do a lot of deadlifting. If I could only do one exercise, it would be deadlifting. For cardio, I dance, I ride my bike, I run and I have kids. There is a … lot of cardio just from being a parent.”

Those who are planning to start a journey to get a physique like Hugh Jackman can take notes as the actor spoke on the importance of a good diet as well. According to the Oscar-nominated actor, diet has a significant contribution to a healthy physique and constitutes seventy percent of the physique.

Fans couldn’t control themselves as the return of Hugh Jackman was announced in the Ryan Reynolds R-rated Bloodfest. Nobody could expect even the slightest that the Marvel veteran would return even after having concluded his journey.

There is a lot of hype surrounding Jackman’s return who was last seen in Logan. Director Shawn Levy, who is going to helm the upcoming multiversal flick, revealed to Collider that Deadpool 3 is bliss for a director as two actors in their iconic characters are seen sharing the screen.


“You have two major movie stars together in a movie playing their most iconic signature roles – that is director heaven. So the story, the tone, the movie itself leans into that gift of having Deadpool and Wolverine co-starring in a movie for the first time. So, we’re definitely not running away from that.”
