Statham might already 49, but fitter than ever. These are his workout secrets.

Men’s Health spoke with Jason Statham about his training. This is what he revealed to us.
You’ve trained for Mechanic: Resurrection. Did the director expect that you would be fit?
“Not really, but I try to protect myself as much as possible against injuries by training too much. That’s my main concern at the moment. It was not about how muscular or strong I would be, so I approached my training differently. I do not play games with myself to see how much weight I could handle, I train ‘dosed’. ”

So you train differently than before?
“Absolutely. I once trained with Logan Hood – he was really a machine. My ego was trying to win, always. It’s not his fault, but when you trie as much weight as possible you sometimes don’t really work on your figure. When he went into the army again – he was a Marine –  that was really a thing to me. I had to figure out myself where I wrong. Therefore, I began to teach myself things. I also began with more mobility training, to figure out how the various joints were working in the body. Maybe I’m getting older, but I feel very fit. ”

You actually become a kind of mechanic of your own body.
“Yes something like that! I have built a gym in my garage and I train alone and a lot smarter. I have different types of training that I like to do. I do a lot of flexibility training, interspersed with martial arts (martial arts, boxing), strength and endurance. It depends on how I feel that day. The point is that you listen to your body – that I did not before.

Do you have a workout that is typical for you?
“I have more – it is important that you don’t get bored with your workouts. It also ensures variety for progression. Your body is smart, so it quickly gets used to a workout. I never do the same workout twice. I do a lot of Olympic lifts because I feel that the technology you need to do these movements is essential. I do a lot cleans, deadlifts, overhead squats … The latter is one of the best exercises ever. ”

But if you are not flexible enough, it will never happen of course.
“Absolutely. It takes a certain form and technique, it’s a great exercise. If you have not mastered it, you become injured. That goes for a lot of lifts for your legs. I remember well that I was a long time ago injured because I was doing a front squat one-rep max. Then I was out for four months. ”

What is the common thread in your workouts?
“I try during each workout to train my legs. If my legs at the beginning of the session feeling good, I train them until they no longer feel good. That’s where its all about: train until it feels as the region is significantly addressed. Then you let it recover, and you train another part. I also do the Olympics lifts in each workout, heavy cleans – are tough. When you’re doing it fast and heavy, you can really push the boundaries of endurance. ”

That seems almost cardio.
“That’s it. Running on a treadmill is the most boring thing I can think of. You will only stand on that thing to say: ‘I’ve done my cardio for today. ” What a joke. What is my cardio? My cardio is my fucking training. When you train properly, you grab your cardio right along. You don’t need cross trainers. I see so many people do it, and I just think: you’ve just wasted an hour of your life. ”

You are 49 now. How long will you do this?
“I started last year on August 21st with training again. I keep it pretty consistently filled to this day, and after this interview, I’m going directly to the gym. Since the beginning of my career, I never sustained like now. I feel myself better and I still have a year or 20, 30 to go. I’m feeling good!
