Chris Pratt's Guardians Workout Program Day 3 - Legs + Abs

Welcome to Day 3 of the 7-day preview of Chris Pratt's workout regimen to prepare for his role in the Guardians of the Galaxy. Today is leg day so that upper body you've been working hard this week will get a bit of rest. We have also included one of the warmups that Pratt used to get ready for his heaving lifting sessions. Happy Humpday!

Chris Pratt's Guardians Workout Program Day 2 - Chest + Abs

I know you're probably dead from all of the pull-ups yesterday, but it's when we push ourselves out of our comfort zones that we start seeing results. When talking about his transformation, Pratt said:

  "People want to know what the secret is. The secret is you can't do it in a month. It takes 8 months, and/or a year, or a lifetime...of consistency, working out every single day, and eating properly and truly feeding yourself. Not starving, but giving yourself proper nutrition to heal. You have to burn off all of the crap you put in your body. And then you have to replace it with really good food, and fuel. And it takes a long time, but really, 8 months isn't a long time. Time is going by just as fast, whether you're working out or not. So, who do you want to be in 8 months?"

If you're inspired by Pratts words then day 2 of the workout program is below!

Celebrity Workout Week: How Chris Pratt Got His Guardians of the Galaxy Bod

If you've seen Guardians of the Galaxy, I'm sure you were either ogling at or envious of Chris Pratt's new chiseled physique. Pratt had to put in an insane amount of work to transition from the slightly overweight Andy Dwyer to the superhero he depicts in Guardians, but he showed us that anything is possible with a little hard work ;)
