  • Published on Oct 18, 2017
  • Today's episode is a something unique. Today we look at Hollywood and what's it's like to get in shape for the big screen.
    Brandon Routh is a Hollywood actor who currently plays The Atom in the TV show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on Netflix. Brandon is best known for playing Superman in the movie Superman Returns (2006).
    Yup, he's a superhero.
    In this episode we discuss the kind of training and nutrition he used to get in shape to portray a character who has seemingly unlimited physical strength.
    Hope you enjoy!

    I heard Brandon talk about the Bulletproof diet on the Nerdist podcast back in November, started the Bulletproof diet after Thanksgiving and it has seriously changed my life. I'm down almost 20 pounds, I get much better sleep and my energy and focus are lightyears ahead of what they were. Thank you Brandon & Dave Asprey!

    A really inspiring thing to watch, I may just take a few of these into account and integrate them into my schedule myself.

    Great actor, but terrible speaker. Felt like he couldnt get his point across as his favorite word was "um"

    Brandon was awesome in Superman Returns, prefer him to Cavill, definitely played the best Clark Kent.

    LOL wtf is Superman doing on Barbell Shrugged????
