[ads1 id=”alignright”]This year Andrew Garfield played one of the most iconic superheroes in the world for the second time.
Of course, despite being the Amazing Spider-Man twice, Andrew is just a mortal himself.
This means that in order to achieve the buff physique that was seen in The Amazing Spiderman 2, he and his body had to go through hell.
In a recent Question and Answer session, Andrew responded to the question of a young fan by stating that he wishes he was actually Spider-Man. Apparently, he wishes he was actually the web-head because then he would not have do to any of the exercises he had to do in order to achieve a superhero’s body.
Andrew revealed that he had to visit the gym eighteen times every single day in order to look anything like the superhero he portrayed on screen.
The 30-year-old Andrew Garfield actually ended up bulking up by sticking to a very gruelling fitness routine. He also mentioned that his workout routine included a lot of weightlifting and “lifting up heavy objects”. Andrew apparently got very bored of his workout routine half way through, but by then he had no other chance.
For his role as Spidey in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, he worked with Armando Alarcon for 10 months, which is how he ended up going through intense strength training. Armando made Andrew do Pilates to improve his core strength and dynamic flexibility, in order to injury-proof his body. Since his frame was slender, he packed muscle through weightlifting. Parkour and plyometrics were also included in Andrew’s special training program.
Andrew added that he also did plenty of yoga, which he referred to as “flexibility stuff.” Indeed, being Spiderman was no easy work. Andrew Garfield on a diet that included “a lot of bland food”. Thus, preparing for the role of the web-slinger involved plenty of commitment, dedication, and hard work.
