Henry covers ‘Men’s Health’

written by Luciana XIV.X

Henry is cover of November issue of Men’s Health, in which he talks about the training done by Immortals.

Soon after wrapping Immortals, Cavill began prepping for his role as the next Superman. To become a little more super, he turned to Mark Twight, owner of Gym Jones in Salt Lake City—the same fitness expert who transformed the cast of 300 into an army of men with washboard abs. Twight uses a punishing training routine called the “tailpipe”: a 100-rep workout that’ll smoke calories, torch fat, and leave you exhausted (ha!). The tailpipe has two “sides,” exercise and recovery, explains Dan John, Twight’s colleague and fellow strength coach. “The exercise portion is designed to get you gassed,” he says. “but the recovery is just as important.”

Twight’s tailpipe recovery method: the moment you finish an exercise, calmly take eight controlled breaths in and out of your nose. “Fight the urge to gasp, throw yourself around, or change songs on your ipod,” says john. Then immediately start the next exercise. (Another thing you should avoid: The Worst Chicken Dishes in America.)

Bonus: The tailpipe can also improve your sports performance, John says, because it helps manage “the stress of extreme fatigue.” After your final tailpipe recovery, attempt a fundamental sport skill. For example, take three free throws, using three basketballs that you’ve placed nearby ahead of time. “Become better at dealing with this stress, and you might suddenly find yourself becoming a clutch player.” [Read More…]
