In the 2000s, he landed more notable roles on the big screen, first getting cast as Turkish in the film Snatch. He next starred in the films The One and Mean Machine before receiving stardom for playing Frank Martin in The Transporter. He reprised his role in the sequels Transporter 2 and Transporter 3.

The actor gained more prominence for his role as Deckard Shaw in Furious 7, The Fate of the Furious, and the most recent Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Jason Statham trains himself instead of training with someone else. “When you’re on your own, you can do a lot of examination of your movements and how good or bad they are,” said the actor. His workout routine has also changed throughout the years. Now, his workouts depend on how he feels every day instead of following a program. “Doing my own thing in the gym each day gives me variety,” he explained.
As for the workout session he usually does, he shared: “I tend to combine some kind of Olympic lift with gymnastic training. And it depends on the acuteness of that training. If I do heavy squats or deadlifts on the Monday, I’m not going to do anything like that again until Thursday or Friday.”
