Jonathan Mayors told Men’s Health all about the workout that got his body in shape for his role as Damian Anderson for Creed III. His workout consisted of getting up early at 4 a.m. to go for a run and say goodbye to carbs, which he admits he hasn’t had in months. Majors talks about the services of Jamie Sawyer who groomed him not only for Creed III but also to play Kang in the next The ant Man film and a bodybuilder in drama, Dreams magazine.

Brian Gay, producer of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, also complimented the playing of the majors and promised that his portrayal of Kang would be a “incredible presence, saying people know Kang is there when the actor takes the stage.

When we talk about the motivation behind training so hard for Creed III, the Method actor said his character’s body was the result of the loss he faced.

There are certain reasons why you build your body. Dame’s body was built from loss. He had lost something, and it was that hole that made him work the way he worked. When you see Dame’s body, you think “oh, that makes sense”. You don’t look like that and be happy in life.

Apparently, Jonathan Majors has reduced his body fat percentage to just 5%. However, for the actor, getting into character isn’t just about overcoming discomfort, it’s also about keeping the right mindset.

The Loki the villain does not hesitate to engage for several months in extreme cardio activities, weight training and mental conditioning to become what he must be for his roles.

“If I’m going to bench press 250 in a movie, I need to be able to bench press 275 a few times, or 305 a few times.”

The actor doesn’t believe in training with fake weights, even while filming a scene. Handing him styrofoam weights will only get you bewildered looks from the majors. Whether he acts like a rough boxer or an asocial bodybuilder, fake weights are out of the question for him.

“I’m going to do this all day. We do not put false weights. I haven’t trained in the last three months to get here and use polystyrene. Put those fucking weights on so we can lift it, so you can pull it, so I can tell the story. Respectfully, anything less is “like putting fake tears in your eyes or putting fake sweat on you.” That’s it. That’s it …! Let’s go.”

Jonathan Major’s attitude towards his training, as well as his acting, speaks volumes about the discipline he possesses. While his physique could very well be a motivation for most, for him it’s something he’ll use to tell his characters’ stories, in a new way.

Creed III will be released in theaters on March 3, 2023.
