Today, we chat with James about the latest Marvel superhero – Shang-Chi and the workout the actor Simu Liu apparently followed to get that superhero body. We chat about the problem with the media portrayal of these workouts as “all you need to do” which is of course not true at all.
These actors have teams of people working with them, focusing on their diet and lifestyle in conjunction with these workout sessions PLUS – this is what they do for a living – they do not have a job or much else to worry about. So don’t put these unrealistic expectations on your body.

“We can tear the whole workout apart, but this is the worrying thing – it’s the media portraying what these guys need to do to get to have superhero bodies.” – James Breese
“Remember these guys have a whole team working with them.” – James Breese
