Zack Snyder Chest and Tricep Workout: Training like The Superstar Celebrities He Films!

The celebrities aren’t the only ones working out when Snyder is working on movies like Justice League, Man of Steel and 300!

Snyder is also working out and getting in shape – which I suppose comes with the territory when you have these celebrities constantly working out around you.

Recently Snyder jumped on a video with Men’s Health and told us all about it.

Snyder says:

“I’ve worked with actors since 300 – Henry Cavill during Man of Steel, Ben Affleck during Batman V. Superman – all we do is workout it seems like, so I thought I should take you and tell you about what I do personally.”

He then brings us into his home gym (which is actually really cool, by the way), and gets into breaking down some of the stuff he is into.

He didn’t ALWAYS workout in his home gym though.

Snyder says:

“Over the years I’ve been involved with fitness in the movies, starting out in 300, I would come in before everyone else and I would do the workouts and Mark would put my times and my PRs on the boards, and all the actors would have to beat it….few did. Those actors know who I’m talking about…”

He also then goes on to talk about the cast working out in both Sucker Punch and Justice League and how everyone was working out basically all the time – and then he goes on to tell us about his trainer Alessandro Komadina.

From there he goes on to put us through a chest and tricep workout which I’ll be breaking down more of below!

Feel free to give it a shot and let me know what you think in the comment section below.
