i find it very strange reading online mainly from media articles about how celebs train or trained for hours everyday, sometimes as many as 4-6, maybe this is a denial method to stop people thinking there on steroids. this is not just limited to celebs but other gym goers online.
if you cheated a exam at school and got 100 percent to everyones shock, your gonna say you studied for hours and hours until the early hours of the morning right?
A article says ryan reynolds and will smith trained for 3 hours and six hours a day respectivley. it isnt just celebrities ive heard people say it on forums that they train for hours and hours but ive never really seen anyone do it ( i work in a gym btw )
ive trained with a top british pro in his gym and a few amauters and no one really trains for much over an hour…just wondering does anyone here actaully train for over 2.5 hours on a regular basis just sound like bs too me, but i may be wrong.
my acutal point is that it is a very bad message to newbies and especially teenagers who may think they have to train for hours and end up completley ruined, exhausted, injured, not to mention coritsol levels limiting gains. Perhaps thats there own fault for being naive but you see my point.
I don’t see why you don’t believe them. If I have 10 weeks to prepare for a big physical role, and essentially nothing else in the world to do and unlimited money to throw at a problem, then you can bet your ass I’m hiring a personal trainer and a personal chef/dietician and doing whatever they tell me to do, however many hours a day they tell me to do it.
It’s not like normal people who have to work 45-60+ hours a week saying they also train 6 hours a day. Training is your life, because the role is your life.
And yes, I am currently training about 2.5-3 hours a day, in 2-3 separate sessions. And yes, back when I was doing straight powerlifting training, I would routinely be in the gym for 2 hours or more at a time.
People get completely ruined, exhausted, and injured because of the stupid shit they do when they train, and the stupid shit they DON’T WANT TO DO when eating and supplementing (legally), not necessarily because they train for 2 hours at a time. Cortisol limiting gains is essentially overrated BS. At least at the “intensity” that most normal people train at, lol. Pros, high level athletes, maybe not. But weekend warriors? I lol at the cortisol excuse.
A lot of high school, college athletes have weights 5 days a week for at least 1 hour, then train for a good 2 hours in practice in the afternoon. That’s 3 hours a day.
