play04:10

training principles to remain in Peak

play04:13

conditioning number One never repeat a

play04:17

workout Jay reportedly never does the

play04:19

same workout twice he gets bored easily

play04:22

and believes that it is one of the

play04:24

biggest motivation killers in a training

play04:26

routine the snatch actor maintains a

play04:29

long list list of exercises and then

play04:31

mixes them up every day to keep his

play04:33

workouts exciting number two work on

play04:36

your

play04:37

Mobility Jason Statham's workout is not

play04:40

limited to heavy lifting since Statham

play04:43

performs most of the stunts himself his

play04:45

workouts focus on improving his Mobility

play04:48

agility and range of motion stretching

play04:51

sucks there's no visual Improvement if

play04:54

you do an hour of stretching a day for 6

play04:56

months you're still going to look the

play04:58

same but the best benefits are huge one

play05:01

it keeps you from getting injured it

play05:03

gives you the real ease of balance that

play05:06

ability to put your shoulders and feet

play05:08

where they need to be it's essential he

play05:10

adds number three always have a workout

play05:15

goal most people find a workout program

play05:18

and make the mistake of thinking that

play05:19

sticking to the regimen is the end goal

play05:22

instead of complete the 12we gaining

play05:24

program your goal should look like lose

play05:27

5s in 2 weeks or shoulder press 10 lb

play05:30

more by Saturday number four do shorter

play05:33

but more intense

play05:35

workouts Jason Stam is not a fan of

play05:38

spending 1 and 1 half hours in the gym

play05:40

he likes keeping his rest durations

play05:42

between sets short and does not spend

play05:45

more than 30 to 40 minutes inside the

play05:47

weight room I can't say yeah I run three

play05:50

times a week lift weights twice and go

play05:52

swimming once just to change it up that

play05:54

doesn't apply my workout is constantly
