Who does the hottest hunk in Hollywood call when he needs to get into shape? Well, if we’re talking about Stephen Amell, that is personal trainer Ashley Borden. She is the so-called architect of Stephen Amell’s famous abs as written by FitMole, and is deserving of a large amount of the credit for his amazing physique.
When asked about Stephen Amell’s nutritional habits when he has been attempting to bulk up and build muscle for a movie role, Stephen Amell reveals that he usually follows a super high calorie diet – but were not talking about cheeseburgers and milkshakes here. Rather, Amell consumes dense whole foods such as lean proteins, green vegetables, and high-fiber fruits. These clean eating staples are the building blocks that Stephen Amell’s amazing physique is built from.
When it comes to Stephen Amell’s specific workout routine, Ashley and Stephen Amell focus on building movement patterns that keep Stephen Amell on his toes and keep his muscles working. Such moves as lunges (both forward and reverse), push ups, pull ups, and the like are specifically tailored to the areas of the body that Stephen Amell is working on at any given moment, or to train for any given role.
When it comes to weight training, Ashley reveals that Stephen Amell achieves those gorgeous muscles the same way that anyone else has to – he works quite a bit with dumbells and does a lot of lifting. Not only that, but he has been known to wear a weighted vest through an entire workout!
Lastly, Stephen Amell and Ashley focus on building the strength in Stephen Amell’s core, because no matter what part of the body he is working on for a movie, everything is always based on core strength! If you have a strong core, you can branch out anywhere from that.
Of course, no regular person is likely to be able to develop a physique (unless you’re Thor) as stunning as Stephen Amell’s – but maybe that’s only because they don’t have Ashley Borden on their side.
