Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace Opens Today

I'm often asked about the workouts and diets of celebrities.  Today Quantum of Solace opens so people are curious about Daniel Craig's training and diet.

I searched the web and found speculative stories about what he ate and how he trained, but I haven't seen a definitive article from his trainer, Simon Waterson.

If I was training Daniel Craig, I'd have him do a CrossFit style workout, like I do with some of my more fit clients.  This type of training produces a lean and efficient look, rather than a bulky and slow body builder look.

Here's my version of a 007 workout:

Set up 5'll go for one minute straight at each station with no break between stations...once you've completed all 5 stations, then take a 1 minute rest....your workout is finished when you have competed 3 rounds. (Note, these are the exact exercises that I give my boot camp clients.)

Station 1: Rowing or jump rope

Station 2: L-pull ups (think pull-ups, but with your legs straight and up at waist level...keep em there)

Station 3: 20lb medicine ball toss (10 feet high)

Station 4: Air squats

Station 5: Push ups

For his lean eating program I'd choose a Zone based plan with a Paleo emphasis.

Plenty of sleep, and at least one massage per week.

Hey Coop, thanks for your advice on my workout regime. We watched the new Bond movie and he one of the most fit Bonds we've seen. You've got a lot of great tips here.

I heard that it was a good movie. I'll probably see it on Friday.

NO way, to get that size you need to lift weights. It's all about hard work, protein and the right vitamins and minerals.
I recommend 3 times a week for at least an hour and each day work on different muscle groups eg, Monday - Chest and Arms, Wednesday - Back and Shoulders, Friday - Legs.
If you need to work particularly hard in one area then do that each day until there's an equal amount of muscle.
