Acclaimed British actor Henry Cavill has revealed his gruelling workout process for Netflix’s The Witcher show, as the immensely popular video-game adaptation approaches its second season. 

Henry Cavill has grown to be one of the most popular actors in the world. The British 37-year-old is best known for his work as Superman and for his role in Mission Impossible Fallout. 

However, he has recently made a name for himself among video game fans for his role as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher adaptation. 

The first season of Netflix’s adaptation received overwhelming success, with Cavill’s portrayal of its main protagonist receiving positive responses.

The Witcher book series has also been adapted into highly successful video games.

Netflix have confirmed that a second season is in the works, set to be released in 2021 barring any late delays. 

With fans’ attention turning to Season 2, Cavill’s insane workout for the show has come to prominence once again. 

Cavill’s workout, according to Men’s Health, consists of five main exercises targeting different areas of the body. 

  • Romanian Deadlifts (3×10)
  • Hyperextensions (3×10)
  • Oblique Static Holds (3x30secs per side)
  • Three-way shoulder raises (3×15 per position)
  • Half-Iso Dumbbell Curls (3×10 per arm)

The Witcher’s second season is set to drop on Netflix in 2021.

It goes without saying that Cavill’s existing levels of muscle mass and overall fitness will be guiding him through the workouts, as well as incredible amounts of protein. 

Men’s Health also stated that Cavill’s usual breakfast is steak and eggs, to ensure his day gets off to a high protein first meal. This then fuels his workouts and allows him to impress as the incredibly muscular Geralt. 

The Witcher Season 2 will drop at some point in 2021, depending on when production is completed. Like many other shows, it was delayed in March due to the ongoing global health crisis. 


MattDoesFitness reveals the insane cost of his home gym renovation

British fitness guru and social media influencer Matt ‘MattDoesFitness’ Morsia has completely transformed his home gym — but the cost of the renovations was nothing to sneeze at.

Morsia is one of the fitness community’s biggest internet stars; boasting over 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube and 898,000 followers on Instagram, his honest approach to fitness and crazy physical challenges have earned him as substantial audience.

Of course, it stands to reason that someone so dedicated to working out would have their own home gym (especially in a time where going to the gym could put one at risk) — but for Morsia, it’s more than just another room in his home.

For this influencer, the gym is his office, which he explained in the beginning of his video on the topic. He clarified that much of the equipment in his gym had been provided by his sponsors, and since it “directly contributes” to his salary, he chose only the most top-tier brands — something he claimed the average person does not need to do for their own home gym experience.

That being said, Matt went on to reveal the exact cost of the space, and it’s enough to make your jaw drop to the floor (or at least a fair wince).

As for the building itself, he spent a grand total of £34,000 (or $43,979), which isn’t actually part of his house. Instead, he commissioned the space to be completely “built from scratch” in the back garden — further compounding on its comparison to a true office space.

Combined with his equipment — the most expensive part of which was his £2,790 ($3,608) dual cable pulley — the entire gym ended up costing him £47,999 ($62,073). That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Morsia was quick to inform viewers that much of his equipment is no longer available for purchase due to the current global climate, and that other parts of the space — such as the bumper plates for his squat rack — were built by hand.

All in all, Morsia’s home gym is an impressive project that cost an equally impressive amount of cash, but when it’s your livelihood on the line, no price is too high for a quality workout.
