Liverpool keeper Loris Karius is ready for a big 2017-18 campaign.

Karius had an up-and-down first season with Liverpool after a transfer from Mainz 05 in the German Bundesliga. Now, he’s been hitting the gym, preparing himself to bounce back.

Karius has been working with trainer Ben Bruno to get his fitness in order before training starts, and Bruno has been impressed by Karius’ work ethic.

Bruno is a big fan of the barbell landmine move—he had actor Jim Parsons crush some in May 2017—and here, Bruno has Karius doing “contrast training” with landmine squats and squat jumps:


That’s not all Bruno has Karius doing.

Here’s a compilation look at the various workouts that Karius is using to get shredded this summer:


Bruno works with a number of celebrities, including Kate Upton and Parsons, putting The Big Bang Theory actor through intense workouts like 475-lb sled rope pulls.
