Getting into actual superhero shape would be daunting at any age, but especially so when you’re nearing 50. Paul Rudd rose to the occasion for his role in the 2015 movie “Ant Man,” and an unlikely source is now sharing the toned-down version of Rudd’s diet and exercise routine for us mere mortals.
Back when he was training for the Marvel film, Rudd listened to fellow “Parks and Recreation” star Chris Pratt and cut out all “fun” foods for almost a year, including alcohol and most carbs.
“Eliminate anything fun for a year and then you can play a hero,” Rudd joked to Variety.
Rudd incorporated a ton of gymnastics-centered workouts and strength-training into his routine, which he says was the most he had consistently worked out in his life.
