* Three minutes of boxing (cardio)
* 50 squats (lower body)
* 40 sit-throughs (mobility)
* 20 repetitions for each exercise (basic)
* 25 push-ups (upper body)
* Rest two minutes, four sets in total

The Thor The actor also completed occlusion training with Ross Edgley. In a video he shared earlier, the actor has a belt tied around his arms with his veins sticking out. It involves the process of restricting the flow of blood and oxygen, forcing the muscles to work harder over a shorter period of time. It helps train the biceps and the body’s ability to tolerate lactic acid.
Chris, without a doubt, sets serious fitness goals for everyone.
