This was Daniel Craig's difficult training routine to become James Bond

Daniel Craig is 52 years old but continues to develop his muscles through hard training sessions. It took more than 12 months of physical preparation and good nutrition to achieve the expected results.

Many actors talk about all the hard work it takes to train for a movie. But few roles are as iconic as Bond, James Bond.  It took Craig almost a full year to prepare for the latest installment of this fan favorite.

After the workouts, Craig would recover with an shake using nut milk, plant protein and vegetables. He also took an ishot of turmeric root juice, which is a natural anti-inflammatory, as well as an injection of probiotics to boost immunity.

Daniel Craig had to work hard with a training routine that included some of the following exercises.

His warm up consisted of a 10-minutes set of an Assault AirBike and 15 reps of each of the strentgh exercises he would perform later. Training 5 days a week, he took the weekends off to rest (active rest, inluding cycling, going for a walk or restorative yoga).

Bodyweight Dip

 Keeping your chest slightly tilted forward, bend your elbows to dive as low as you can, aiming for your hands to be parallel to your pectorals. Back up to start a repeat. To make it easier, place a resistance band around the handles and put your knees over it.

Pull ups

Keeping your core and legs engaged, pull up until the chin is above the bar, then back up for a repeat. Do your best in the first series; in the next series, aim for that number minus 2. For a challenge, do it in gym rings, or make it easier by turning the grip and doing chinups.

Abs

Kneel, holding an ab roller or bar on the floor with weight plates at both ends. Keeping your abs and buttocks tight, and with your back slightly rounded and your arms locked, roll forward until your biceps are near your ears. Pause, then slowly back up to begin a repetition. If you can't go all the way down and still get up, make the roll less deep.

Climbers

Start on a high board, shoulder blades retracted, arms blocked, hands on a Bosu trainer (the half rubber ball attached to a puck), a straight line between head and heels. Quickly draw your left knee over your left elbow, back up and repeat with your right knee for one repetition. This can also be done with hands on the floor and feet on the Bosu.

Russian Twist

Sit on the floor, holding a light or medium medicine ball (10 to 15 pounds), dumbbell, or bell. Chin slightly in, sit up, bring your shoulder blades together, keep your spine straight, bend your knees, and step over your feet to begin with. Rotate torso to move weight to left side of body, and back to right side for a repeat. If fatigue strikes, drop your heels to the floor.
