Michael B. Jordan Workout Routine

Jordan’s personal trainer Corey Calliet focused on building the actor’s muscles while increasing his work capacity to make him not just look like a championship boxer but also move like one. His training regimen included a combination of athletic conditioning and bodybuilding exercises. He trained four days a week, with each session consisting of cardio and circuit training for melting fat off his core while each muscle group was trained with volume to achieve the maximum pump. For warming up, he ran a mile at an average pace.
