Henry Cavill is listed on #02 of Men’s Heath “Best Summer Bodies”:
Actor Henry Cavill is never one to deny a challenge. After wowing audiences as the Duke of Suffolk in the hit Showtime drama The Tudors, Cavill switched gears (and slimmed down to an impressive 6 percent body fat) to play the mythic Greek warrior Theseus in the upcoming USA epic Immortals. It’s just the type of role he relishes. “I’m from a family of six men, so I’m bound to be physical,” says Cavill, who recently returned to the gym to prepare for the titular role in next year’s Superman: Man of Steel.
To achieve the traditionally buff look of the caped superhero, Cavill turned to Mark Dwight, the same trainer who helped Gerard Butler sculpt the muscular build of a Spartan king for 300. His first priority: Packing on lean mass and building a strong foundation. Check out The 300 Workout to start building your own big screen physique.
