Video: How to get ripped like Hercules Part 4 – Leg Day

You'll have to grow the beard yourself though...

Directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Horrible Bosses) and starring Dwayne Johnson's muscles, Ian McShane, Dwayne Johnson's beard, John Hurt and even more of Dwayne Johnson's massive muscles, Hercules is a brand spankin' new action adventure film that will tell the tale of the tormented, earth-bound Demigod.


At 42 years of age, Dwayne Johnson is in remarkable shape. At a considerably younger age, JOE is not quite in as remarkable shape.

We wanted to change that fact and so, ahead of the release of the excellent-looking Paramount film Hercules, we headed along to chat to our good friends at RAW Condition Gym, trainers Kane Kearns and Andy Hickey, to find out just how we could go about getting into hunky Herculean shape.

In a series of five workout videos, the lads will focus on a different part of the body each day to help you get defined like Dwayne. The experts have already taken us through the workout for the arms in Part 1, the back in Part 2, the chest in Part 3, and today they're talking us through how to get our lovely legs in shape. Here's the workout in full...


Leg Extension 4x25

Leg Press superset with weighted walking lunges 4x50 (Leg Press) 40 steps for lunges

Leg Press 4x20


Romanian Deadlifts 4x12

Lying Leg Curls 4x12

Standing Calf Raise 5x75

Seated Calf Raise 5 x 50
