Adam Driver Is Jacked as Hell In ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi,’ and Here’s How to Get His Body

The last time you saw Kylo Ren, the whiny leader of the First Order was being defeated by Rey and Finn, and he was left with a scar on his face.

Two years later, he’s back in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And this time, he’s darker, meaner, and more muscular, thanks to a bigger, stronger Adam Driver. Driver, 33, has a solid layer of muscle in the newest Star Wars film, perfect for his darker, more brooding persona, and the changes to his physique are noticeable in the December blockbuster.

Driver began his turn in the Star Wars franchise two years ago with a solid fitness background; he’s an ex-Marine. His solid fitness base was likely key to the more aggressive workouts he needed to pull off his Last Jedi transformation.

Start with a three-move bodyweight circuit built around classic military exercises: Pushups, pullups and squats. Do that three days a week for two weeks, then move onto the bulking program below from trainer Ben Boudro, C.S.C.S., owner of Xceleration Fitness in Detroit.
