For anyone who has seen a single episode of Game of Thrones when Jason Momoa played Khal Drago knows that he's a literal beast. Standing tall at 6' 4", he towers over 90% of the Hollywood elite. Beyond his height, he's shredded AF. Between his muscles and tribal tattoos, Jason Momoa is not someone you'd want to get into a bar brawl with. On a regular day, the dude is intimidating. Throw in his Aquaman fitness regime and you've got yourself a genuine superhuman.
4 yrs in the making. Mad crazy love to my Zack Snyder you are my brother. Mahalo to @wfmft for all your guidance I know it wasn’t easy.

Momoa recently did an interview with Muscle and Strength where he detailed his workout routine for both Justice League and his upcoming solo role as Aquaman. Momoa explained:
"It's very hard sometimes to just work out. It's monotonous and you can get stuck in a rut. I get bored, so I do a lot more boxing, surfing, climbing — I do the things I love to do when I'm not training for a role. When I have to change my body type, then we just switch it up. Doing a lot more weights for size; a lot more cardio for definition."
Must be nice to not have to work on definition, huh? The magazine went on to explain the specifics of his full-body routine. Momoa practiced the Accelerated Results 7 (AR-7) routine, created by personal trainer Eric Laciste. According to Esquire:
"The full-body plan is based on a surprising combination of low reps, low weight and little rests. The fast tempo of AR-7 increases the burn of a work-out, with the aim of achieving muscular failure. This means that you can do the work-out a number of times a day."
Well, guys! There you have it, want to look like Aquaman? Prepare to work your ass off. If that seems like too much work, maybe just enjoy the movies and call it a day.
