10+ Strict Rules Henry Cavill Follows To Keep Himself In Superman Shape

It isn't easy being Superman, a fact that Henry Cavill knows all too well. Over the years, he's had to make sacrifice after sacrifice in order to don the red cape and tights.

Above all else, Henry is disciplined. Find out just how much so when you check out these 10+ strict rules Henry Cavill follows to keep himself in Superman shape.

1. Henry trains at least twice a day.

I have a hard time forcing myself to work out 'hard' once a week, and here's Henry logging two full workouts a day?

Superman gets more done before 7 AM then I do in my entire day!

2. Go above and beyond body aesthetics.

Sure, you have to maintain a certain body image to play the Big Blue Boyscout, a fact that isn't lost on Henry.

But he also understands that longevity is key. His stamina and recovery are of pinnacle importance for a movie shoot.

3. Henry eats clean.

Sadly, you don't get a body like Henry's by eating junk food.

If that were the case, I would be playing Clark Kent in the DCU and Henry would probably be writing the article you're reading now.

4. Food preparation is the key to success.

Staying organized and on top of things is priority #1 for the Man of Steel.

By knowing what he's eating ahead of time, it allows Henry to budget his time more efficiently.

It also keeps him consistent.

5. Henry doesn't do extreme diets...most of the time.

Like I mentioned earlier, Henry is about creating a lifestyle as opposed to shocking his system.

That said, he did once dehydrate himself for three full days for his shirtless scene in The Witcher.

6. Surround yourself with experts.

Henry understands that he needs to trust in the help and advice of trained professionals.

That's why he always works out with a certified trainer. It not only keeps him on track, but it helps reduce the possibility of injury.

7. Henry gets the most he can out of his water.

Henry's preferred brand of water is called No. 1 Rosemary Water.

It's absolutely packed with minerals and herbal extracts. The only time he isn't drinking it is when he's training at the gym.

He's so water obsessed, that he even helped make a documentary on the subject!

Henry was actually researching various springs around the UK before partnering with No. 1 Rosemary.

He wanted to ensure that the sourcing was ethical, which is exactly what'd you'd expect from Superman.

8. A Superman needs super herbs!

Instead of using supplements, Henry elects to infuse his diet with super herbs! These include things like turmeric, basil, and Siberian ginseng.

Which reminds me, I need to pick up more Siberian ginseng from the store — I'm fresh out.

9. Henry maintains an incredibly high caloric intake.

Henry is over 6-feet-tall and weighs upwards of 200 lbs. In order to maintain his body weight, he eats five meals a day!

He starts off his day with a fat steak and a plate of eggs — for breakfast!

10. Even Superman needs a cheat day.

Henry doesn't believe in torturing himself. So what is Cavill's kryptonite, you ask? He's been known to indulge himself on Chicago-style deep dish pizza.

I guess if you're going to cheat, you might as well cheat big!

11. Don't underestimate the power of a good night's sleep.

It isn't uncommon for Henry to put in upwards of 12-14 hours of work on an average day. In order to make sure that he's able to carry the load, he has to ensure ample time to recover.

Henry sleeps on average 9-10 hours a night.

12. Henry trains his mind as hard as he trains his body.

Henry treats his body as a temple. He understands that a clear head is what captains the ship. In his downtime, he enjoys reading to keep himself alert.

You can even listen to him reading an excerpt from The Witcher!

13. Don't allow negativity to creep in.

Henry has to be laser-focused in order to maintain his fitness levels. This is why he never dwells on the past, nor does he allow himself to be ruled by the opinions of others.

Being happy, above all else, allows him to be successful.

14. Henry tests his tired, every day.

You don't subject yourself to this kind of strain unless you honestly and truly love what you do.

Henry wakes up every morning with a renewed passion to make today better than yesterday — to be better than he was before.
