Want to build muscle like Deadpool? We've got you covered with this three move workout. But how can just a trio of moves get the abs you want? For long-term gains, consistency trumps intensity. “Ryan’s in there day in, day out,” says Don Saladino (donsaladino.com), Reynolds' trainer. “People think it’s all about that ‘push till you puke’ mentality. That’s bullshit.” Instead, listen to your body. “If you’re exhausted, and your nervous system is telling you to back off, trying to crush a workout can screw you up for days,” he says. “Just do the best you can that day and don’t overdo it. Your body will respond better, and tomorrow you’ll probably be even stronger. A lack of pressure really helps you develop. Stress is such a killer on the physique.”

But still, being renowned for his cut midsection since Blade: Trinity, Reynolds must major on his abs, right? Wrong. “Ryan loved hitting his abs before a workout,” says Saladino. “I didn’t like that so I had him do it at the end.” Blitzing your core before heavy compound moves like squats and deadlifts is not advisable - and afterwards, it’s barely necessary: “Those lifts really took care of a lot of the abs.” But just in case, here’s a trio of finishers.

Hanging leg raises

Grab a pull-up bar and lower yourself into a dead hang. Let your legs straighten and pull your pelvis back slightly. Tense your core and raise your legs until your thighs are perpendicular to your torso. Hold then lower slowly back to the starting position.

Weighted ab cable curl

Attach a rope to a high pulley and kneel in front of it, with the handles held either side of your neck. Without moving your hips, contract your abs to bring your elbows to your thighs. Pause for a moment then slowly return to the starting position.


Raise the bar to shoulder height with your arms extended in front of you and stand with feet wider than shoulder-width. Perform the movement by rotating the trunk and hips as you swing the weight all the way down to one side, keeping your arms extended throughout. Reverse the motion to rotate the weight over to the opposite side.
