Playing a superhero on television, the actor knew he needed to up his workout routine in order to improve not only his physique but his strength and agility as well. In an interview, the TV star became candid about the kind of training that he does in order to stay in shape. He said: ” I think my workout routine is much different than what Stephen Amell did and what he still does, just because our body types are so different. But it’s a lot of working out for hours at a time. Right now it’s about running, I’ve been putting in some time with an Olympic running trainer.”
He continued: “I run a lot. I do a lot of pull ups and push ups while I’m at work. I run a lot for the job. I’m on a treadmill in front of a green-screen—harnessed. And it’s 10 to 14 hour days for me every single day. I haven’t had a camera day off yet. So that schedule keeps you in shape, too.”
