When it comes to Bond movies, there is a certain level of physical preparedness that comes with the role of playing the iconic Agent 007. As the lead in the last five installments, it fell on Daniel Craig to once more go through the transformation of becoming the ever-elegant yet super-fit agent. How did he do it at age 52?
His No Time to Die Nutrition Plan
It’s never easy to get into the body of Bond, especially if you’re already 52. But, since Daniel has already been down that road, he knew he had to be smart about it, and nutrition played a huge role in the process. After a workout, he’d refuel with a plant-based recovery shake made of protein, greens, and nut milk. Other times, he’d have a full meal. In addition, he’d get a shot of turmeric root juice. Turmeric is a fantastic probiotic to bolster immunity and also has great anti-inflammatory qualities.
Daniel Craig Starts Training a Year in Advance
There’s nothing easy about attaining the physique of a god, and there’s also the challenge of doing that in your 50s. This is why Daniel Craig started training a year before the start of production. The main focus of his workouts was doing role-specific and agility work. The goal was to stabilize his core muscles by keeping him supple at the same time. He’d start with 10 minutes on an Assault AirBike or Wattbike, and then proceed with 12 to 20 reps of the first superset moves. He does two reps of the superset, and then after some rest, he does remaining supersets. The whole thing is done twice a week.
Daniel’s Recovery Regimen
He does plenty of stretching to relieve sore chest and body sections. He uses a light resistance band for that. In addition, Daniel uses a percussive massager to reduce the tightness in his hips, glutes, and IT bands.
