The Truth about Superhero Workouts

In interviews, Robert clarifies that he is not a professional sportsman. In addition, age is a disfavoring factor, so the training program was especially developed for him keeping in mind that Robert combines combat sports and strength training exercises.

The main thing, as you remember, is that a flat stomach is the reflection of a small percentage of subcutaneous fat, which is achieved through diet. No exercise is able to remove the fat, so it is useless to have muscle relief through abdominal exercises.

Robert Downey Jr. worked for the increased volume. This type of training not only raises the muscles, but also the percentage of fat (due to the high amount of calories in the diet). Abdominal exercises were only for the strengthening and not for visual effect.
