The James Bond Workout - How 007 Gets Toned Muscle

Jan 18, 2008
What Would a James Bond Workout Look Like?

Daniel Craig is the new icon for the ideal male body. Back in 1999, in the movie Fight Club, Brad Pitt attained the ideal physique. It has been 7 years, but I would say that James Bond might be the new role model for men to shoot for. While both have similar physiques, Daniel carries a little more muscle. For a physique like Brad Pitt, I would recommend splitting your time working out to 25% lifting and 75% cardio. The James Bond Workout would emphasize lifting more...40% lifting and 60% cardio.

How Would 007 Eat to Have Great Muscle Tone

Daniel Craig is obviously more muscular than Brad Pitt was in Fight Club. Brad Pitt was on the Zone Diet before Fight Club to become the super-toned Tyler Durden (main character in the movie). When Daniel Craig was interviewed about his diet before Casino Royale, he said that he ate quite a bit of protein. So while Brad was eating about 30% of his daily caloric intake from protein, the new James Bond was most likely eating about 50% of his calories in protein.

To Be Like Bond, You Need to Eat More Calories Than Tyler Durden

Make no mistake about it, Brad Pitt had very low body fat for Fight Club. I am good at estimating body fat percentage and I would say that Brad's percentage in Fight Club was around 4-6%. In Casino Royale, James Bond looks closer to 8% body fat percentage. While both are impressive, Daniel had it a bit easier. In order to get down to the 5% body fat range, you really have to keep calories low. Since James Bond was bigger and more of a realistic body fat percentage, he could allow himself to eat more than Tyler Durden. For the James Bond Workout plan, you could eat 6 meals per day with ample protein and low carbs. Compared to Tyler Durden, James Bond has it good. I guarantee you that Tyler Durden eats much less than James Bond...probably 3 really low calorie meals per day.

Moderate Cardio for the James Bond Workout

In order to get down below 6% body fat like Tyler Durden, you need to really concentrate on High Intensity Interval Training to naturally increase your HGH levels. In addition to that, you need to perform moderate cardio for longer periods of time. For the James Bond Workout, you probably will be able to skip the High Intensity Interval Cardio. To maintain 8% body fat, you can get away with sticking to the traditional moderate intensity cardio for 30-45 minutes or so after each workout. In the James Bond Workout, you will only need to add High Intensity Cardio, if you reach a sticking point in burning body fat.
