Dancing with the Stars Workout

This week ABC premiered the new season of hit show Dancing with the Stars. The celebrity lineup includes Buzz Aldrin, Chad Ochocinco, Erin Andrews, Evan Lysacek, Jake Pavelka, Kate Gosselin, Nicole Scherzinger, Pamela Anderson, and Shannon Doherty. We already covered the workout routines of Dancing hunks Chad, Evan, and Jake, and taught you how Kelly Osbourne lost 42 lbs. competing on the show last season. Clearly, Dancing with the Stars attracts hot bodies and helps stars get in even better shape.

Brad Pitt Workout and Diet for Fight Club

Information on the workout and diet that Brad Pitt used to prepare for Fight Club is one of the most requested workout routines here at The Celebrity Workout. Here’s the scoop.

It has been over 10 years since Brad Pitt blew people’s minds as Tyler Durden in the cult classic, Fight Club. Pitt’s body for his role as Tyler Durden is arguably the most sought-after celebrity body. No surprise considering the months of training that Brad Pitt needed to cut down to 150 pounds (Pitt is 5’ 11”) with only 5-6% body fat.

In general, Brad Pitt’s workout routine involved working out a different muscle group each day of the week to allow the muscle group to rest for a week.

Brad Pitt and the Fight Club Workout

Directions:

Perform 3 sets of each exercise with 60 seconds of rest between each set.  Use a challenging weight that allows you to complete at least 15 reps with good form. You should be fatigued at the 15th rep. Tip: If you’re not sure what weight to use, start with a light weight for the first set. Then, if necessary, change the weight for the second set and/or the next time you do the workout.
