Workout Routine

Ryan has been working out for 1 to 1 and a half hours a day consistently since the last 20 years (we must say, this level of dedication is commendable). Currently, he is following the prison-style workout with the help of his trainer Happy Hill. The specialty of this workout regime is that it needs the most basic equipment such as dumbbells, barbells and includes several bodyweight moves. It also includes a half-hour warm up of sprints on an elliptical or on a treadmill, free weights, and old-school calisthenics. This workout routine not only trains his entire body, it also tests his muscular endurance.

How To Do It

If you are eager to learn the exact workout routine of the ex-husband of Reese Witherspoon and do it yourself, you should keep reading. Also, remember to perform each circuit at least three times before moving on to the next one. To make things interesting, you should jump rope for 2 or 3 minutes between circuits while alternating between double under and single jumps. It is also essential to take some rest between rounds. If you are in a hurry, then you should focus on any of the following circuits and try to do as many rounds as possible.
