The actor had to undergo an intense training routine to play a boxer in the movie "Creed".
Michael B. Jordan trained six days a week, according to his coach. The actor shocked the audience when he starred in the first "Creed" movie. And you can thank Coach Corey Calliet for that.
The actor's personal trainer worked out a six-day-a-week training routine:
- 45 to 60 minutes of cardio
- Three sets of 25 sit-ups every other day
- One mile of treadmill warm-up
- Two sets of 10 repetitions of push-ups
- Four sets of dumbbell curls
- Three rounds of 20 repetitions of box jumping, squatting, and bubble jumping.
- Boxing training (heavy bag, speed bag, jump rope)
Coach Corey Calliet comments on the progress the actor made in his training to develop great muscles.
"I remember when we started Mike couldn't lift 25 pounds, but then I started to see the confidence as he could see the results. Now he jumps rope better than I do, and I fought the Golden Gloves."
His trainer said Jordan then did an intense weight training to gain 15 pounds of muscle.
