The Secret on How To Build Craig Horner’s Solid Body Shape

August 18th, 2010 · 3 Comments ·


Craig Horner is an Australian actor who created fame in as Richard Cypher on the television series Legend of the Seeker.  For those who have seen the season 1 of the series, I am sure you were amazed by his body shape, especially his washboard type of 6-pack abs.

Two years ago, before Craig took up the role, just like many other young lads, he spent time sitting around having beer.  But, when he was offered the wood guide role in the television series, he was determined to make a difference.  He joined a gym and never look back.  In fact, the habit of working out has turned into a genuine interest of body building.  He even quoted Arnold Schwarzenegger – “The artist uses more clay to mold his work, while the body builder changes his body by pumping iron”.



If you wonder what type of workout routine Craig Horner has gone through, from the interviews, I did not find any new stuffs.  In other words, what he did were similar workouts like most celebrities have done, including squats, dead lift, bench press, pull up, biceps curl and others.  Go check out workout articles on Ryan Reynolds, Will Smith, Taylor Lautner, Rain and you will understand what I meant.

Craig acknowledged that it is important to work out really hard with lots of pain.  He pushed his body really hard and work out at least 5 days a week, including weekends.  He spent at least an hour for weight training followed by a cardiovascular session.  The other tip he shared is that instead of keep asking for instant result, he focused much in keeping the workout schedule despite he has to be on the movie site during day time.

So, no secret, except hard work.

    To build muscle, the exercise you do are pretty standard. But I think what is more important is the diet. What did he eat? How many times a day does he eat? Does he take supplements? etc.

    Sometimes I feel that too much emphasis is placed on exercise and too little to diet. I myself am guilty of this, admittedly.

    i can’t say he has alot of musclemass on his body, but the proportions just takes the breath out of me. If he would keep workout and put on more muscle he would be an PERFECT bodybuilder/ model or anything like that:P still he has an awesome body at the moment anyway.
