Bradley Cooper’s Workout Routine

The Limitless actor prefers a lean, toned body rather than a bulky one. He is very earnest with his workout routine. He follows a workout program called the 3-2-1 Training Method to get that perfectly shaped body.

The 3-2-1 Training Method is a total body workout, and it involves three reps of ten minutes of cardio workouts, two reps of ten minutes of strength training, and ten minutes of core workouts without any rep. The workout routine is a full-body program that works the calves, hamstrings, quadriceps, abs, obliques, lats, pecs and shoulders, ensuring you get ripped from head-to-toe.

While doing this workout, make sure that the time spent in doing the exercise is consistent, without any breaks. However, you have option to reduce the time from ten minutes to six, five, or even four minutes (or whatever you can comfortably perform).
