Workout

Grant Gustin: I think my workout routine is much different than what [Stephen Amell] did and what he still does, just because our body types are so different. But it’s a lot of working out for hours at a time. Right now it’s about running, I’ve been putting in some time with an Olympic running trainer.

I did a lot of training before I went to Vancouver to do the pilot.  I trained for 3 or 4 months.  I’ve always been really thin and I wanted to put on at least a little weight. 

And I did put on some weight before I shot the pilot.  And I knew it would be hard for me to maintain too much weight with my body type on this film schedule.  

So I kind of plateaued at a certain point on purpose because I work 12 hours a day on average and I knew on top of that I wouldn’t be able to get in the type of workout I’d need to maintain that size.  

So I run a lot.  

I do a lot of pull ups and pushups while I’m at work.  

I run a lot for the job.  

I’m on a treadmill in front of a green-screen—harnessed.  

And it’s 10 to 14 hour days for me every single day.  

I haven’t had a camera day off yet.  

So that schedule keeps you in shape, too.

 

Nutrition

No I don’t track calories, thankfully I don’t have to do that.  

Even with what Stephen Amell does, what he has to put himself through, I just don’t have to do that.  

Because they want me lean for this version of the Flash.  

I’m going to be lean.  

It makes sense.
