This Is Justice League Star, Jason Momoa's, Chest Workout | Men's Health Magazine Australia

Jason Momoa’s Chest Workout Will Make Your Pecs Scream For Mercy

Jason Momoa has already brought some of the most bad-ass characters in movie history to life. He’s resurrected Arnie’s Conan the Barbarian, he’s won over Khaleesi in Game of Thrones, and he was the highlight of last years Justice League movie (along with Gal Gadot of course).

The man is an absolute man-mountain, with an unpolished adventurous rawness about him, so it’s no wonder why he’s quickly becoming the go-to action hero of our time. While the action sport enthusiast can often be found in the desert, riding his Harley or bouldering whatever mountain he comes across, he enviable shape is largely shaped in the gym.

Momoa and his trainer Eric Laciste work out very hard. This is the killer upper-body regime that turned a barbarian into an Aquaman.

Warm up

Do 100 press-ups and 100 squats. Change whenever you need to but work continuously until you’ve done all your reps. Rest for 2min.

Press up and bodyweight squat

You need to do 100 of each
 continuously. Keep your back flat 
on the press-ups, and sink as
 deep as you can when squatting. It doesn’t matter how you 
split them up but keep switching.

Superset 1

7 of each: dips, diamond push-ups, 7 secs active rest (at top of the move), 6 of each, then 5. 2mins full rest. Complete 3 rounds.

Bar dip

Grab the dip bars with your arms 
locked out and lean forward to
 hit your chest more. Lower 
yourself down until your elbows
 are the same height as your shoulders, then press back up.
