Over the years of my fitness career, I've constantly made modifications to my clients' and personal workout routine to test and see if we can improve our results. I admire Pewdiepie for exploring what exercises work best for him, so I set aside some time to study his new workout plan in detail.

In this article, I'll discuss the Pewdiepie workout routine and assess whether it can help you achieve a ripped body like his.

Let's begin.

Pewdiepie's Stats

  • Age: 32 years old
  • Birthdate: October 24, 1989
  • Height: 5 ft 9 in (180 cm)

His Workout Equipment

According to Pewdiepie's recent workout review video, he used to do his workout in the garage but has now moved his equipment into the living room.

Furthermore, he places a mat on the floor before placing his single adjustable bench and uses a newer version of a power block, a dumbbell with adjustable weights.

The bottom line, he did not want anything complicated, so he kept his workout equipment as simple as possible.

His Workout Principles

According to Pewdiepie's video, he is not in the habit of putting himself under too much pressure when working out.

However, he avoids making excuses for not working out on any given day, claiming that doing something is always preferable to doing nothing.

"Everyone's canvas is different, but it's what you do with it that matters."

- Pewdiepie

He listens to music that he enjoys to motivate himself to work harder, especially when weight lifting and working out his legs.

Also, it makes no difference to him whether he stays on top of his workouts or not, as long as he remains consistent and keeps going regardless of the circumstances.

What Does Pewdiepie Diet Plan Consist Of?

Pewdiepie's diet plan consists of foods high in protein, such as fish, chicken, and salmon. Also, he consumes foods that are a bit lower in carbohydrates, such as whole-grain foods, green vegetables, and natural sugar from fruit juices.

In most of his videos, Pewdiepie appears to have a lean body mass, suggesting that he probably eats less junk food, sweets, and unhealthy fast food.

When it comes to alcohol, he now only drinks whiskey on rare occasions, and he makes sure to drink a lot of water during the day to avoid dehydration and improve his mood [1].

His Diet Principles

As he states in his videos on multiple occasions, lifting weights alone is not sufficient for fat loss and muscle growth.

So, he now consistently eats healthier foods and increases his protein intake because he wants to gain muscle mass and appear bulkier, as he used to be a skinny guy.

Pewdiepie Supplements

Pewdiepie being a gamer promotes and drinks an energy drink called G Fuel in his YouTube videos.

However, in his most recent workout review, he stated that he's taking pre-workout supplements to increase his energy, strength, and physical performance.

Since he intends to continue working out in the long run, he probably uses whey protein powders for muscle growth [2].

FAQs

How Often Does Pewdiepie Workout?

Pewdiepie works out five days a week, with four days of weight lifting and one day of light cardio exercise. Initially, he lifted weights five days a week, but he dropped that to four to allow more muscle recovery time.

Was Pewdiepie Bulky Before He Got Big?

No, Pewdiepie was not bulky before he got big on social media, and he was always regarded as a skinny guy. He decided to live an active, healthy lifestyle by lifting weights in his 30s to gain muscle mass.

Final Thoughts on Pewdiepie's Body Transformation

Pewdiepie's body transformation isn't as dramatic compared to the physical changes of some other well-known athletes and bodybuilders.

However, Pewdiepie has always been known for having a thin frame, so his current body mass shows a significant improvement in gaining muscles and appearing bulkier than in his previous video appearances.

His body transformation can be attributed to his consistency in working out and taking good pre-workout supplements to maximize the yield of those workouts.

I advise you to invest in a high-quality pre workout as this can be a gamechanger in terms of the speed and efficacy of your fitness journey towards looking like Pewdiepie.
