4. Intensify your workouts
Aulet typically aims for two-a-days when prepping for a show or shoot, with a 40-minute session of moderate-intensity cardio five mornings a week (“You don’t want to kick your ass to lose muscle,” he says), plus 45-minute split-set weight training sessions in the evenings: chest and back on Mondays, legs on Wednesdays, shoulders/biceps/triceps on Fridays, and core, calves, and traps on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If he can’t dedicate the time, he does HITT-style workouts five days a week which consists of resistance training with strict 60-second rest periods so the sessions double as cardio. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, that’ll be 5 sets of 9-12 reps of barbell squats or other leg-press movements, bench presses, deadlifts, and bent-over rows, followed by three supersets of 10 bicep curls and 10 tricep extensions, and finishing with three supersets of of 10 dips and 10 pullups. Tuesdays and Thursdays hit the delts, calves, and abs and include four sets of 15 barbells shoulder press superset with 15 upright rows; three sets of 12-15 lateral raises superset with standing or seated calves; and three sets of an abs tri-set: jack knives, mountain climbers, and spiderman-plank side crunches, each to failure back to back, with 60 seconds between sets.Back to top
