Build Crime-Fighting Pecs With Tom Hardy’s Press-Up Complex
As if Tom Hardy could get any cooler, he single-handedly apprehended a thief after chasing him down through a building site. You don't need muscles like Bane to chase a crook - but you do need some to collar him. We present Hardy's own brutal Bane blitz to get in super-villain shape. Y'know, just in case. Let the games begin!
Start in the same position as above, but this time spread your fingers as you lower and turn them outwards. Take the pain.
Assume a press-up position on your knuckles, your arms at shoulder-width. Lower your chest to the floor, letting your elbows bend back like a grasshopper’s legs. This is a final killer on your shoulders.
Place your thumbs and index fingers together in a diamond shape. Lower your chest to the centre of the diamond, then push back up again. Breathe raggedly.
Position your palms so they’re ‘square’ with your shoulders. Keep your elbows tucked in, moving alongside your torso to detonate your triceps.
Set your hands wide apart, so that when you lower your chest to the floor your arms, chest and the floor form a rectangle.
This punishing press-up routine can be performed in the comfort of your lounge.
