Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors created history with their latest film Creed III, which recorded a $100 million in its international opening weekend. In a video on the Men’s Health YouTube channel, Jordan and Majors shared the intense workout routines they used to get fight-ready for the third installment of the Rocky spinoff.
Michael B. Jordan first made a name for himself playing a role in the drama Fruitvale Station (2013). In 2015, Jordan got tapped to join the iconic sports drama film franchise, Rocky. He worked hard in the gym in preparation for playing an elite boxer in the spinoff movie Creed. Jordan left fans in awe of the athletic physique he built with the help of trainer Corey Calliet. He gained major praise for his work alongside Sylvester Stallone in the project.
Three years later, Jordan joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a supervillain, Erik Killmonger, in the Marvel film Black Panther (2018). Jordan kept high fitness levels to depict the expert mercenary. He joined forces with Calliet again to pack on the pounds and to bring a more muscular build for the role.
While in production for Creed II, Jordan crossed off an item on his bucket list after getting the opportunity to train his boxing technique with Stallone.
Jordan also gave fans a sneak peek at the package he crafted for Creed III in Nov. 2021. He enlisted Calliet’s help once more to get ripped for the project. Besides leading the cast, Jordan also served as the director and one of the producers of the film.
Last October, the 36-year-old shared a shredded physique update boasting his aesthetic features in the first-look reveal for the boxing movie. Much like Jordan, Jonathan Majors showed off his jacked build as well.
Majors recently made headlines for his role in the Disney+ television series Loki, and then for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania as well as Avengers: The Kang Dynasty.
Majors got signed to play the role of an amateur bodybuilder named Killian Maddox in the film Magazine Dreams, which Mike O’Hearn is a part of. He underwent an insane body transformation to get jacked for the role, consuming more than 6,100 calories for four months and working out three times a day.
His latest appearance happened in the freshly released Creed III, in which he plays boxing prodigy Damian ‘Dame’ Anderson next to Jordan on the big screen.
