Tyson Beckford has been working out since he was 13. Establishing a sense of discipline when it comes to his workout routine started when he was young. Over time, he’s increased the intensity of his workouts, enabling him to perform 1,000 crunches at one time. For his warm-ups, he usually does it with planks. “”Start with 15 seconds, then go to 30, then go to a minute—keep taking yourself to higher levels,” advises the actor. While he’s built his body through weightlifting, he’s also tried calisthenics as an alternative when he’s too busy to hit the gym. He also exercises by doing pushups, chin-ups, and dips.
