As an avid surfer, Chris is used to being in shape, but playing the Norse god of thunder and lightning brings his exercise routine to a whole other level. After all, no one gets a rock-solid body without proving just how much they went through to achieve it.
“For Avengers or for playing Thor, it’s a lot of bulking, heavy weightlifting, and isolated muscle movement,” Chris told Techpluz at the Indianapolis 500, which he attended as a TAG Heuer brand ambassador. “What I started incorporating on the last film, and what I do a lot of now, is cross-training, circuit-training, I think about eight or nine different exercises. It’s 50/50 with legs and upper body, and then alternate on a Tabata style.”
Because the husband and father of three stays active, he likes TAG Heuer’s Aquaracer. “I wear that a lot surfing just because … it’s pretty indestructible. But,” he says with a laugh, “I tend to give them all a bit of a bashing.”
