Gianni Paolo Workout Routine: Train like the Power Star!

Now it’s not like we had an insane amount of requests come in to see Gianni Paolo’s workout routine as a priority, but I decided to bring his on because it’s a nice switch from what we’re used to seeing.

Paolo, who stars in Power, Power Book II: Ghost and Ma, swears by “German Volume Training”.

While some of the characters we see come in with updates with these shorter articles have already made it into our Workout Database, and that’s why we’re seeing short updates, this will actually be the first time Gianni Paolo’s workout ends up among our other celebrity workouts.

That being said, we’re going to be pulling it right from the source because Gianni hopped on a video for Men’s Health’s YouTube Channel and gave us everything we need to know!

I’ll be pulling important quotes from the video and then also breaking down the full routine below, so get ready.

Paolo starts the video by saying:

“With my new project, Power, I just want to feel good on set, I mean there’s nothing specific that I need to really be in shape for except sex scene, spoiler, but I try and just be in shape and feel good when i’m on set – especially when I’m doing scenes wheN I have to shoot people or do anything specific like that where we’re doing a lot of action, I just want to be in the best shape possible. And also, when you’re in great shape, you’re in great mind as well…they come hand in hand. So that’s kind of how I really focus on the gym.”

From there he begins to get right into the training and he tells us a bit about it beforehand.

Spoiler: I’m talking about the German Volume Training!

Here’s what he has to say about it:

“So we’re going to do a German Volume Training based workout, which basically means 10 sets of 10, we’re going to be doing 4 big exercises, and then we’re going to go do some cardio.”

I’ll pull each exercise out with the rep scheme and progressive overload and lifting style and then pair it with the cardio Paolo chooses below.

Let’s do this!
