Jake Gyllenhaal Prince of Persia Workout
You may have already seen glimpses of Jake Gyllenhaal preparing for his upcoming role in Prince of Persia, but I thought I’d jump the gun and write an article on his workout. Mind you he was always in shape but he has definitely put on a good amount of bulk for his role.
This is a simulated workout routine of Jake Gyllenhall including real Insider information from his trainer that will build serious muscle mass. Only attempt this workout if you are at an advanced level working out for at least 6 months continuously. If you’re not quite there then you can begin with lighter weights and lower reps until you feel confident with your form and ready to push to the next level.
Jake Gyllenhaal Workout Routine:
Do this routine once a week for 8 weeks and make sure to include 1-2 rest days a week. Attempt 3 sets of 10-12 reps or 4 sets 6-8 reps with heavy weights (first set is a warm-up set) if you want to match Jake’s level of muscle mass. To simulate sword fights Jake’s workout was heavily focused on using cables along with body-weight exercises.
