Jonathan Majors Shared His Workout Schedule For Magazine Dreams.


Jonathan Majors spoke about the rigor of his exercises and diet in preparation for a role in Magazine Dreams.

The stars of the new movie Majors, who also gained weight for his role in Creed III, play an obsessive bodybuilder named Killian Maddox, and have already received critical acclaim.

Speaking to Variety Studio at Sundance, the actor explained that he ate more than 6,000 calories a day for four months to play Maddox.

“I’m 6 feet tall. I weigh 202 pounds,” Majors said. “To maintain that and grow, you need to eat as much protein as you weigh. I’ve been eating 6,100 calories a day for about four months. This included preliminary work and follow-up work on Creed III.”

“A normal bodybuilder trains twice a day,” he continued. “I’m playing Killian Maddox… playing him, you’re not fucking. As a result, I trained for two hours, twice a day before the movie and the third time after wrapping.

“Meanwhile, you eat six meals a day. Lots of chicken. Lots of moose. It’s just for me. I like it.”

Majors also revealed that he has slowed down his workouts a bit, but is still striving to stay fit.

“I played football in Texas. I have an appetite,” he added. “I really like being physical. I love hiking and running. I have dogs. I’m only 33, I have to do something to stay with this. I no longer train three times a day. Only once a day.”

Yesterday it became known that Magazine Dreams provoked a strike of the jury members at the Sundance Film Festival due to the fact that proper subtitles were not provided.

During the premiere on Friday (January 20), jurors Jeremy O. Harris, Eliza Hittman and Marley Matlin made a collective decision after failing to provide adequate subtitles for deaf and hard of hearing viewers, Variety reports.

A subtitle device for deaf Matlin was provided at the screening, although it reportedly did not work, leading to a strike, while the jury repeatedly expressed concern during the festival about the use of open subtitles.

Magazine Dreams is looking for distribution after the premiere at Sundance, and Creed III will be released in the UK in March.
