It is confirmed that actor Henry Cavill is set to reprise his role as Superman in Man of Steel 2. The 33-year-old is known to follow a strict diet to portray the role of Superman and follows an intense workout regimen.

Cavill performed a CrossFit-style training program with timed exercises and circuits that featured gymnastics and plyometrics. The bulking phase of Cavill’s workout included Olympic-style weightlifting that builds strength, muscle, and power.

Cavill’s CrossFit-style workout included high-level lifting with presses, deadlifts, squats, sprinting, bent-over rows, power cleans, push presses with 50-pound dumbbells, kettlebell swings, back squats, push-ups, and pull-ups. Needless to say, Cavill’s strict diet and workout plans have paid off, and he is clearly fit enough to play the part of Superman.
