Henry Cavill’s letting us in on a secret.
“There is no one Superman workout,” Men’s Journal August 2018 cover star says in his behind-the-scenes video. “There are lots of different kinds of workouts required for the Superman physique. It’s become a body-sculpting thing. You’re balancing the diet as much as you can, trying to keep the body proportionate.”
Since Cavill’s played Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League—and potentially more in the future—he’s pretty much perpetually in shape, which was ideal for his role in Mission: Impossible—Fallout.
He plays a CIA operative who butts heads with Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt. Cavill had some very physical scenes in the film, including a brutal, knock-down-drag-out fight in a bathroom that’s as intense as anything that’s hit theaters this year.
Read Cavill’s full profile and more about his favorite workouts and how he trained for Mission: Impossible in the August 2018 issue of Men’s Journal, on newsstands now.
