Be Prepared
“You don’t have to kill yourself, but when you walk into that weight room, you have to be ready to work,” says Faris.

Have Patience
“Give your body some time to adjust. If you’re just starting (or restarting), take on reasonable goals. That way you won’t overwork your body, and you’ll be inspired by early successes,” says the 27-year old actor. Definitely be aware of burn out when starting any type of fitness regimen. Proper rest and nutrition are equally important to how hard you train. Goal setting, and tracking, are also good ways to keep you on track.

Switch It Up
“When you’ve reached your goals, reset them and make them harder,” Faris says. Successful fitness plans are always evolving. Stick with what works until you plateau, then change up your routine and challenge your body in a new way.

Do a Big Set
While Faris normally sticks to traditional rep ranges, he will often perform a monster set where he will do 50-60 reps of an exercise. He aims to do as many reps as he can with perfect form until he tires out, rests for a few seconds, then repeats until he reaches his rep goal. This is also a good way to shock your body with something different and help avoid plateaus.

Play anything
Don’t be afraid to step outside the gym and try new things to challenge your body. When he visits his family’s farm in Texas, he pitches in with hours of manual labor. “It’s an incredible workout, especially in the summer when it’s, like, 100-plus degrees and humid,” he says. Try out new sports or activities occasionally to make you a more versatile athlete.
