Daniel Wroughton Craig, the English actor who portrayed “James Bond” in several Hollywood blockbusters such as Casino Royale, Skyfall, and Spectre, has become a symbol of fitness for men around the globe. None of the actors who have appeared in the James Bond film series has been able to sport a lean and muscular body as Daniel Craig.

In the latest James Bond movie named Spectre, the 48-year-old actor looks incredibly fit and in shape. Therefore, if you want to have a 007-worthy physique, you can try the workout regimen followed by Craig in preparation to play the role of the secret agent.

Daniel Craig Workout Plan

To build a muscular physique, Craig trained under his personal fitness expert Simon Waterson, who devised a diverse workout program that would push the actor to his limits. A daily plan was set up, and some specific exercises were performed every day. Apart from training hard to gain strength and build stamina, he focused on developing his upper body. To gear up for the workout sessions, Craig performed some warm-up exercises including rowing. Though the British actor took the weekend off, he did some stretching as well as cardio workouts such as a hike, mid-paced run, bike ride, or a swim.

Daniel Craig Diet Plan

You need to balance a vigorous workout plan with proper nutrition, and Daniel Craig did exactly so. He quit smoking and had to sacrifice his usual food habits. Since he wanted to be lean and fit, he had a low carb diet and ate plenty of vegetables, nuts, and salad; occasionally feeding on pulses, raw veggies, and fruits. To build muscles, Craig was strictly on a high-protein-diet, which included egg whites, protein shakes, green vegetables, chicken, and fish. He also took creatine, glutamine, glucosamine, and protein supplements to boost recovery after workouts and promote muscle growth.
