How Zachary Levi Got In Serious Shape For Shazam!

    If you want to play a costumed superhero, then you need to look the part, and that means intense workouts coupled with an insane diet. Let's take a look at how Zachary Levi went from supergeek to superhero, and got ripped for Shazam!
    When Zachary Levi agreed to take on Shazam as his next big role, he essentially agreed to make the gym his second home. After all, this is a character who has stood his ground in a number of scraps with Superman over the years. If this confrontation is ever going to play out on the big screen, then Levi has to at least keep pace with Henry Cavill, assuming Cavill is still playing the Man of Steel by the time a crossover is viable. The movie's official synopsis even described Shazam as having a "ripped, godlike body," so there's little wonder Levi began hitting the weights almost every day.
    During a chat with former Smallville Lex Luthor actor Michael Rosenbaum, Levi said he's working out five or six days a week.
    That's a lot of gym time no matter who you are, and all that time pumping iron definitely shows.
    When someone who doesn't work out regularly starts hitting the gym hard, they usually experience what's known as "newbie gains."
    This was evidently the case for Levi, who managed to pack on an impressive amount of pounds within his first six weeks of training. He told Rosenbaum in February 2018:
    Levi gave a similar account of his early gains when Variety caught up with him almost a year down the line. Speaking to the Hollywood trade at the New York City premiere of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 2, the actor revealed that he'd started seeing results right away:
    "I immediately put on about 24 pounds and then we carved that down in about half. So I've been hovering around 215 pounds, and I'm in the best shape of my life and stronger and happier and healthier than I've ever been." Keep watching to find out how Zachary Levi got in serious shape for Shazam!

Maybe it was just a crappy suit, but I felt like his muscles looked fake in the movie too. Also, that picture of him, shirtless in the GYM... If that is after he's been working out, he looks like I do before I start me workout. Within the first few minutes of the movie, I was thinking, where are his abs? Abs are very hard work, but when you have a trainer or motivation, they are not hard to achieve. I used a "Perfect Fitness" "Perfect Sit-up" (actually crunches) apparatus, and I started doing crunches every day. I got to where I was doing 700+ crunches including oblique per day, and within a couple of months I started to see my abs. When I was younger, I always had a big frame. When I decided to start working on my body, I decided that the whole purpose of working out is to be able to eat anything I want, so I have not done any dieting. I'm 6'3, 247Lbs and have 16.5" Biceps. I read that Chris Evans is 6' and has 17" biceps, so my goal is to get a little bigger than that. it won't be easy because I ripped one of my biceps off at the distal end during an Airborne Operation and had to have it surgically re-attached. I have to be careful not to mess it up again.

talking about training program coupled with an insane diet; that is less than 50% ; more than 50% is genetics ; don't be fooled that anybody can reach that level , especially knowing that this actor is between 6'3 and 6'4 ; if you are under 6' and not wide shoulders...better do something else

Something is not right. I've cut carbs and sugar, done intermittent fasting and only eat meat patties with cucumbers on the side to balance my PH and I've been shedding fat like sweat and looking much more toned and muscular. Also, going to the gym less to let my body heal. According to this video, he's doing the opposite.. how about the truth? Padding inside costume and supplemental help for the body?

By the way it takes 10 years of dedicated weight training along with ideal nutrition to reach your genetic maximum muscular development. When you do reach that point it doesn't mean that you'll look like Arnold's twin like most of you may believe, it will vary according to individual genetics!

Only people with little experience in weight training believe that the trainers that are hired by movie studios have some secret knowledge that results in 20 to 30 lb. Muscle gains in such short time spans. Secret knowledge No!, steroids Yes!

All superhero outfits need some amount of padding, even if you have the body of Henry Cavill. This is simply because the materials needed to create a superhero costume typically have a flattening effect on muscles, so you end up not looking as ripped as you are. Try wearing a skintight spandex jumpsuit and you'll see that some padding is needed to show muscle definition. That isn't to say that Zachary Levi isn't ripped out of costume, it's just to say that a certain amount of padding is probably used for all superhero costumes to make sure the ripped bodies of the actors is on display in costume.
