From Portly to Lordly Im Star Lord! When Chris Pratt uttered these words, he was convincing at best as he had transformed himself from his pudgy Parks and Recreation character to a totally fit and muscular star spanning superhero, and it only took him six months to get that ripped physique. One of the great things about Chris Pratt is that when he puts his mind to it, he can accomplish anything, which is why his trainers have nothing but good compliments about him and his work ethic inside the gym.
Chris had to lose 60 pounds to gain his current physique and develop the muscles hidden underneath the layers of fat he possessed at that time.
This did not come as drastically as most actors like Christian Bale or Matthew McConaughey who became almost rail thin with their transformations.
Chris transformation was gradual and well-planned. The first two months of Chris transformation involved bodybuilding to increase strength and to force his body to burn off excess weight. This included free weights targeting all parts of his underdeveloped body and a lot of deadlifts to increase strength. The next two months began to include conditioning to improve his cardio, agility and endurance. Aside from lifting weights, he had to undergo rigorous endurance enhancing workout, which totally left him drained.
The last two months of his workout focused more on conditioning with bodybuilding down to a minimum, so this meant running on the treadmill and rowing on the rowing machine. He also performed circuit training (and if you havent tried it yet, youll know that it is pure torture) to improve his endurance, agility and coordination. Lastly, to ensure that he did not sacrifice his flexibility, he underwent extreme calisthenics, which gave us a totally complete package in the form of Star
Although Chris was guided through this program, it wasnt unexpected for him to be in the gym against his trainers orders. When asked about this, hed often reply that he just wanted to be stronger, leaner and more fit which his trainers couldnt fault him with. Aside from the rigorous physical training he underwent, Chris Pratt stuck to an equally strict diet, which focused on cutting out the fat and providing him with mostly calories, carbohydrates and protein to turn his accumulated fat into muscle. In the end, when Chris Pratt finally revealed the results of his hard work, the Internet almost stopped in its tracks. Good job Star Lord!
