Terry Crews Expendables Training –

[music] What? Hey, everybody. It’s Terry Crews from the new
movie, the best action movie of the summer, “The Expendables”
with Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Randy Couture,
Mickey Rourke, myself. It’s gonna be great, and you
might know me from the Old Spice commercials, and I’m glad to
be here with Let me tell you something. You will never, ever, ever see
a cast like this, ever in movie history. It’s the Halley’s
Comet of action movies. I’m trying to say that your
testosterone level will jump when you get in the theater. [gunshots and grunting] I play a guy, a guy by
the name of Hale Caesar. Best movie name of all time,
okay, who’s a long-barrel weapons specialist. I’m passionate about my weapons. I have a gun that I literally
call my girlfriend, you know what I mean? But that’s my character. My specialty has always been
my guns…you know what I mean? It’s kind of like,
that’s my deal. And this is one reason why Sly
put me in, is that he knew that I had the look, you
know what I mean? It was like, the guy holding the
gun, and a lot of military guys were like, “Wait a minute,
he wouldn’t wear anything sleeveless,” but I was like,
“Hey, man, this is a movie.” Check that out. That’s the gun show, baby. I’m here to show you an exercise
that I do to get ready for most of my films and TV
shows and projects, especially “The Expendables.” It’s called 24’s, and basically
it’s 4 different exercises with 6 reps each, and I’m telling
you, this thing will work your core. It works your shoulders. It works your lower body. You are totally done, and
because you do so many reps, it’s almost like
a cardio workout. Let me show you. [music] The first exercise in the set
of 24’s is an upright row. I’m gonna show you how to
do it…grip the weight. Make sure your grip
is close together. Bend your knees, come up into
it, sit in it, make sure you have your balance,
and here we go. We’re gonna lift the bar all the
way to our chin…six reps of those. [music] And then we immediately widen
our grip, and we go do six power cleans without banging it on
the floor with metal weights. If you have some rubber weights,
go ahead, but with the metal, you always gotta be
conscious of the floor. So here we go. Gotta get down and explode on
every jump, and we’re gonna jerk when we get it up to the top… [music] Explosion is what
it’s all about. Make it come from your
core and your hips. Then you set it and
you do six reps. Right after those six power
cleans, we close our stance a little bit and then hit
a Romanian deadlift. You don’t have to
go past your knees. Just enough so you feel it in
your back…You’re working your back, and you should feel
it in your hamstrings. [music] Now, directly from the Romanian
deadlifts, we’re gonna do six jump squats. Take it to a clean, get it up
behind your back, rest it on your shoulder, and then you get
down and explode right up into the air, keeping your
back arched…Explosion. That’s six. Bring it down. Hey, guys, as you can see, 24’s
has you winded pretty quickly, so you have to be careful. Make sure you start with
very, very small weight. The whole thing, this is not
about how much weight you have. It’s about the explosion. Even if you start off with just
the bar, that’s real cool, man. As long as you get the movement
and make it correct, and do all the reps in the sets,
you will get burned. It’s a wonderful thing. This is an exercise I do every
time it’s a shoulder day for me, especially with the jerk, and
I started out with this so that now that my engine’s running,
I’ll go right into my shoulder exercises and it’s got me warm,
it’s got me ready, because your shoulders can be a
really sensitive area. I work out very, very hard. My thing is to always be as
hard and as cut as possible, you know, but within parameters. You don’t want to be just, you
know, just starving and have no strength, you know what I mean? And with a role like this, I
knew it was gonna take a lot of energy, man. I mean, you know, just to get
through the days and make the physical stuff work. My workout through the week is
pretty much cardio every day. And I usually get on the
treadmill and I’ll do a half an hour at 7.0, which usually ends
up with me running 3 and a half miles every day. Monday is a shoulder day,
where I do power cleans. I work my shoulders. Tuesday is back day, where I
just get everything regarding back. Wednesday is strictly cardio,
and I usually double up my cardio that day. Sometimes I’ll do 5 miles
instead of 3.5 and then call it a day. Thursday is chest and arms, and
then Friday is a big, big leg day. I go to endurance and heavy
weight, so it’s always a good balance of doing that. Get to the gym, consistency,
always, and if you have to not do an exercise for a while,
just leave it alone, but work on other things, you
know what I mean? There’s always
something you can do. I train very, very hard. I train as if I’m still in
the NFL in a lot of ways. I use a lot of NFL-style
workouts, tons of power cleans, lots of explosive movement. Get up, apple in the morning
just to wake you up, then I take my vitamins. Then I work out, I mean,
pretty much on that. Then I hit a protein shake,
like, right after the workout. And then about 2 hours later,
I’ll have some yogurt and granola, that kind of thing, and
then for lunch, I usually get a salad. Chicken salad with the beans and
the lettuce, no rice, no nothing like that, but with the
meat and the whole thing. Then, I might grab another
protein shake, and then for dinner, it’s a good,
like, chicken breast. I’m always adjusting,
you know, whatever I see. It’s always like some chicken
breast you can grab, that whole thing for dinner,
and I call it a day. I’m not opposed to having some
bread, or some tortilla chips, and you know, because
I really burn it off. I have a very, very
active lifestyle. To be here and to be in this
position and to watch, you know, yourself on screen, man, in
the movies, it’s great, man. It’s like, man, it makes all
those years and all that pain worth it. Anybody who trains
knows it’s 100% pain. It’s kind of like the theme
of this movie, you know? In “The Expendables,”
people try to retire you. I look at Stallone, man. They tried to put
him out to pasture. They’re like,
“Dude, you’re done. You did your thing. Now we gotta give it to somebody
else, and, you know, you should be over.” But you always
have to come back. It’s always about rebuilding. You always have to say,
“I’m not going to stop.” And the thing is, why? Why stop? I’m gonna never give up. I’m gonna always stay in shape. Forever, if you see me, I’ll be
the best-looking 90-year-old guy you’ve ever seen. That’s my plan. [music] Let me tell you, for more
content like this, you gotta go to It’s the place to be, baby. “Expendables,” August 13th, bam. [growling] [gunshots] [music]

LOVE the Movie … Best cast ever …. (24) workout Great I did it with just the bar .. and I was winded big time… Many thanks … better late then never just found this vid…

  2. i do something similar but with higher reps and lighter weight and i can tell you it really works with lean meal and excllent excersie

  3. Heya, The best success that I have ever had was with Marks magic method (i found it on google) Without a doubt the most helpful diet that I have ever tried.

  4. Go follow the link you can get a 40% discount on all hylete products

  5. That wasn't the workout. That was the pre-warmup, to get you ready for the warmup, to get you ready for the pre-workout, followed by the workout, which precedes the post workout

  6. Haven't done powerclean since FB season man I forgot about the good stuff lol I love how it's so tiring still remember😯😂😂

  7. Something doesn't make sense. He runs 3.5 miles everyday and has nothing but chicken salad, proteins shakes, and chicken breast for dinner. Where is he getting all the carbs to have the energy to workout at that intensity.

  8. Exactly, Mr. Crews, "use lighter weights"! He's a monster and he can throw that much weight around. Those exercises would be great with light weight to prevent injury. Great motivational video with nutrition included. Very helpful.

  9. That carnt be his diet . A man his size needs alot more protein than 2shakes and one chicken breast. He says on other videos his up at 5am to workout. And fasts till 2pm then gets his meals in. Been doing alot of clean and press in my work out routine. Great exercise

  10. And give good tidings to…وَبَشِّرِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ أَنَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ ۖ كُلَّمَا رُزِقُوا مِنْهَا مِنْ ثَمَرَةٍ رِزْقًا ۙ قَالُوا هَٰذَا الَّذِي رُزِقْنَا مِنْ قَبْلُ ۖ وَأُتُوا بِهِ مُتَشَابِهًا ۖ وَلَهُمْ فِيهَا أَزْوَاجٌ مُطَهَّرَةٌ ۖ وَهُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ
    And give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that they will have gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow. Whenever they are provided with a provision of fruit therefrom, they will say, "This is what we were provided with before." And it is given to them in likeness. And they will have therein purified spouses, and they will abide therein eternally.
    The holy Quran.
    -Sourate Al-Baqarah, Aya 25

  11. Terry: You will never ever have a cast like this in movie history!
