Ben Lawson follows a regular workout routine to stay in good shape. In an interview, he got candid about his regimen. For starters, he combines cardio and weights as his standard fitness moves. “I’m a weights guy,” said the actor. “I go to the gym regularly. But when I need to get in shape for a role, I will switch over to high-intensity interval training. Intervals shred you up.” Bodyweight exercises are also just some of the basics for him. “Wide-grip pullups are a staple for me. If I can’t do three sets of 10, I feel out of shape,” he explained.
