Jake Gyllenhaal Workout Plan and Prep For Movie Roles including Southpaw

Jake Gyllenhaal takes is career very seriously.  So when he decides to train for a role, the results are nothin short of spectacular.    After seeing him in Southpaw, the audience wanted to know exactly how he trained and if there was anything else that helped him obtain his physique.

You probably remember Jake Gyllenhaal when he was younger. At that time it was hard to predict that he would play anything but small, skinny, dorky roles, but Jake has a gift to reinvent himself.

Becoming a legitimate boxer involves of nothing less than having 100% intensity.

“I never really boxed in my life and I knew there have been a lot of great boxing movies in the past.  I knew the bar was going to be set high which made me rise to the occasion and push myself far and beyond my limits,” Jake told us when we caught up with him at a recent event.

Jake trained like a boxer for 5 months.   He hated the mornings when he had to wake up when it was still dark out, absolutely freezing, and had to go for a long run.  He had to dig deep to find the fire to motivate him.  He’d wake up take the Jake Gyllenhaal Supplements, have some water to wash it down, and then begin the day.

In the end he made the director Antoine Fuqua and the rest of the crew proud.  Fuqua said, “I knew he was the best choice.  You can see it in his eyes nothing was going to stand in the way to filming one of the best comebacks in boxing history.  I’m proud of him.  He should be proud of himself.”
