Jason Momoa Explains How He Got So Jacked

Stay Balanced

"The hardest thing about all of it is keeping yourself in shape and doing your job. I'm on set with Red Road minimum 13 hours, and then I have to find time to take care of myself, be a father and do the things I love to do. Doing Conan, those were 15-hour days, you're doing stunts all day long, and I have to wake up at 5 and do lifts before work. Same thing with Justice League. People think it's easy. For me, being really creative and physical at the same time is hard. I just don't wanna be the muscle and the brawn."

Treat Yourself...with Guinness

"I'm an early riser, I work out really hard, I push myself, I get my job done, and at the end of the day, there's a Guinness waiting for me. I can't stand chocolate. I don't eat sweets, but there's gonna be three Guinness at the end of the day, and it helps me get through. If you're too disciplined, it can mess up your mind. You need to have that treat for yourself. It keeps me really disciplined, and it tastes good too."

Expect Pain

"Eight months out of the year, I've been training for when we get into Justice League. There's gonna be a good year of prep just to get your body ready to do the stunts. It is for sure tiring. I've kind of crossed that place where everyone told me, 'You're gonna hurt.'"

Hire Professionals...and Drink More Guinness

"Everything has technique to it. So if there's something you wanna try out, I think it's always good to get a trainer or listen to people who know what they're doing. You just don't want to get hurt, and it's always good to learn.... If you're gonna start something new, you should always research it. Find a sensei. Drink Guinness."
