Kellan Lutz Workout: The Basics

The actor had to get in major shape for his role as Poseidon in the movie Immortals. He started working out with personal trainer Rich McDonald who focuses on full-body workouts and aims to engage the core, quads, hamstrings and all of the arm muscles in one single  training session.

Pro Tip: Work Your Abs Effectively

We already wrote about this in a previous article: train smarter, not harder. Instead of training your abs every day, train them 2-3 times per week and increase the intensity of those sessions. Use your days off to give your muscles time to recover and grow.
