Chris Pine’s Workout Routine

Pine’s trainer, Mark Wildman, had Pine swinging clubbells, dumbbells, and even steel to get into fighting shape. Pine says:

"Before this, I was doing pretty traditional weightlifting," the 35-year-old actor explains. "With this workout, all of a sudden, you start to float more. Even my friends used to make fun of the way I walked. I was walking in this rigid way, and it had a lot to do with having been an insecure kid trying to move protectively. Now, my body is moving in a more healthful way. It's because of Mark's process."

His Workout Principles

“For the last Star Trek, I wanted to be a bit bigger and chunkier. So I ate a lot and worked out religiously.”

 

- Chris Pine

True story. For his upcoming Wonder Woman and Star Trek movies, Pine exercised six days a week. He would start his fitness routine every day by doing supersets first thing in the morning. Then, he practiced HIIT to get ripped for his roles.

Furthermore, the actor loves working intensely outdoors and often runs his neighborhood and the surrounding hills.

The actor also regularly visits his chiropractor, physical therapist, and massage therapist to work on different injuries he's acquired through the years. These professionals help him minimize recovery time and feel his best.

Maintaining good posture is essential in Pine’s routine. In addition, he believes that a good core workout gives him a strong core that protects his back and his whole body.
