    Cool

    Have no idea....but no matter how he trains, training like him won't give you his build.

    But I want guns like Flex Wheeler, I have to use his routine. Sorry. Anyways don't follow some one else's routine to the letter. Stay true to yourself and train in a way you think will deliver results. Your body composition and genetic make up will determine more about your physique than Vin Diesel's routine.

    Politely, I don't think this is true.

    If you train like a marthon runner, you will look like a marathon runner.

    If you traind like a powerlifter, you will look like a short dumpy power lifter.

    If you train like Vin Diesel, you will make more progress toward developing like him than you would if you trained like Flex Wheeler. Simply put, if you want to look like someone because of their features, such as shoulders or chest, doing their shoulder or chest routine will help get you as close as possible until genetic differences prevent the rest.

    This takes into consideration too many variables. Im not gonna touch it.

    Some people respond better to high reps/low reps/more reps. SOme people are genetically gifted, and some excersizes work better than others for some people. You can work towards a build you admire, but training like that person usually isn't the quickest way there.

    Very few people in this world could train like Herchel Walker, much less look like him while doing it. Athletes like him are gifted in that they don't know what lactic acid is or have learned to like it. Combine that with a high percentage of fast-twitch fibers and you have a man who can get as big as he wants never lifting more than his body weight. That's just not plausible for most people.

    So. If Vin is one of those guys who has a natural build or works really hard for it, there's no guarantee that doing what he does will make you look like him. You're better off experimenting with what your body responds to and doing it.

    There are a lot of problems with this concept, but the biggest one is the fact that the way the Vin trains now is not how he trained to get where he is now. You have to learn what works best for you like Nayl said. Thats the only way to maximize your full potential.
    Yup, I'm bigger than you.

    If this were true I could select bodyparts from all the bodybuilders I admire and train each bodypart to become like each of my favourites. Imagine Lee Haney's lats, Dorian Yates delts, Arnold's biceps, etc. Sorry but that's just not true. You are what you are born with. You can manipulate the size of individual muscles and overall mass but muscle shape is not so easily changed. Wishfull thinking at best.

    this is the standard sheep responce of this site, sadly it is as much BS as it is truth.
    Some parts of bodybuilding are indeed genetic, other parts on the other hand arn't so genetic and while his exact workout wont necessarily give you his exact results it is at least a starting point

    I"m not sure if the people that give this sheep responce just arn't capable of understanding concepts deeper then puking forth information they have heard elsewhere or what
    but listen, there is a difference between piecing together peoples bodyparts and using thier training to make a FrakenBodyBuilder
    that's not what this is about
    this is about one body's proportions looking good to someone
    so if you were to use Franco Columbo (whos Lats I liked better then Haney's personally) as the example of the proportions you like you would do well to make your Lats a priority in your training. This isn't the same as doing EXACTLY the workout he did by any means, but looking at the workout of someone who's general proportions you like is a better starting place then say, doing set after set of calf raises and hoping against hope that your lats grow to monsterous size
    let us think logically for at least a few moments before we spit forth our random sheep noises...

    so if you were to use Franco Columbo (whos Lats I liked better then Haney's personally) as the example of the proportions you like you would do well to make your Lats a priority in your training. This isn't the same as doing EXACTLY the workout he did by any means, but looking at the workout of someone who's general proportions you like is a better starting place then say, doing set after set of calf raises and hoping against hope that your lats grow to monsterous size
    let us think logically for at least a few moments before we spit forth our random sheep noises...
    So your qualm with his post is not what you addressed in yours. Prioritizing is one thing. Thinking that you can have someone's build by training like them is pathetic idol worship. Be who you are.

    the same line of thinking could be used to tell us all to stop lifting weights
    and again a member of the herd makes the mistake of assuming what this guy wants.
    it is true doing someones exact workout is no garountee that you will get a body similar to thiers, but it is better then a random shot in the dark at getting proportions similar to the person you want to emulate.

    I will again tell you that using Franco Columbo's routine for Lats will bring you closer to getting his Lat development then any amount of effort put into calf raises...
    it seems foolish anyone could argue against that logic

    The point is that due to numerous differences (hormonal, muscle attachments, etc.) most people could never look like who they want to. They can achieve a great physique, maybe even one more asthetically pleasing. I just think that it's lame to have a goal that may not be achievable. Shoot high, but be realistic.

    well the exact body I tend to agree, tho to get the general proportions of someone it seems like might be realistic, and trying to work out similarly to them is a good place to start so I get upset when people bust out with the assembly-line answer of 'training like him wont help!'
    it would be better to say, training like him isn't a a sure fire way to get his body but we can help you try
    the effort to help the person try seems to get casually tossed aside at the mere thought of the chance to highlight their relative inexperience by treating them like a newb who's desires are inconsequential(sp?)
    the better thing to do would have been to ask what about Vin's body the guy liked, and if he said exactly like that well the effort then would be to try to get his proportions and a near level of bodyfat

    What Gethuge is saying is true. You can't get Diesels body form if you don't have it. He's a mesmorph, so am i. he isn't a realy big or skinny guy, he has a medium frame, that when we lift weights we can build our muscles fast. Mesmorphs have a little waist and a big upper body... Go to google.com and type in body frames, and it'll explain the different kind of frames to you. In order to get big like vin diesel you have to be very strict! you can eat fruit, but not to many apples, grapes, or cherries are no good for you.
    Avacado, Watermelon, Canalope, 1 Orange a week, and hit the protiens realy hard (Fish) Chicken) and Turkey are your friends, Shrimp and Lobster and sea food in general are great also. stay away from to much red meat- steak is good, but not everyday. stay away from to much bread, and pastas, if you do take any in it has to be befor (1pm).. But realy hit the protiens hard, and green veggies as much as possible. I can't stress how good Avacado is for you, it's high on the good fats, and extremely high in protiens and vitamins in order for your body to build muscle. Don't ever think about (steriods).Good luck, hope you hit the size you wanna hit.

    Here's a thought.

    Why not simply give the man what he asks for and keep the opinions to yourself unless he asks?

    I seem to find these forums are nothing but for other people to cram their ideology down your throat.

    Nothing is ever static in body building. Everyone is different, so everything is a variable that can't truly be a perfect solution.

    As for the workout, i couldn't find anything. He could be switching up his work out all the time, every month or two. I know a lot of people in hollywood do this so they don't plateu. It's also another idea that he may not have a routine, simply because each role could need more or less of fat or muscle mass. (just guilty).

    Try looking up his routine for a movie, like chronicles of riddick maybe? Good Luck.

    And worshiping idols isn't the same as thinking someone has a good physique. Save your god for the christian site, the only church on this site is the Gym.
