Simon Pegg got very in shape for his next role. Working with trainer Nick Lower, Pegg went from 12 percent body fat to just 8 percent while also dropping nearly 20 pounds in total weight. The workout program included “a mix of strength, circuits, core and 60km trail runs” along with a “sound nutrition plan,” according to Lower.
“When we discussed this character, Simon wanted to be very lean but with definition,” Lower told Men’s Journal. “This physique is a little extreme and not maintainable for long periods, although Simon keeps in good shape all of the time. It was achieved because Simon was consistent with his nutrition and training plan. No tricks or ridiculous dieting methods, just a focused mindset, good nutrition, a mix of strength training and cardio.”
