The actor revealed that he underwent rigorous physical training to prepare for his role as Kylo Ren in the latest Star Wars franchise. One thing that he did was undergo martial arts training along with his co-stars. It was also reported that the actor did “plank-based exercises, pull-ups, and push-ups” as means of boosting his core muscles. It was said that he utilized “medicine balls, resistance bands, and free weights” in order to transform his physique and overall strength.
Being in the United States Marine Corps before, physical training is something that doesn’t intimidate the actor. He also shared how this helped him with his training for Star Wars. He said in an interview: “We didn’t have lightsabers in the Marine Corps but yeah, I enjoyed the physical part. Plus it’s part of the [‘Star Wars’] world we’re trying to inhabit. Their bodies and the way they inhabit them physically is very much their world, so it didn’t seem so much of a huge undertaking. It’s like the vocabulary of this world.”
