Jason Momoa is set to star in the upcoming Conan the Barbarian movie, taking on Arnold Schwarzenegger's legendary role. Prior to scoring the Conan role, Momoa was best known for his role as Jason Ioane on Baywatch Hawaii and Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis. Momoa has always been in great shape, winning Hawaii's Model of the Year award in 1999. He really ramped up his workout routine for Conan to develop a true warrior look. I will continue to update this lens as more information about Jason Momoa's workout routine for Conan becomes available.

At 6'4, 215lbs, Jason Momoa certainly has the Conan the barbarian body. While Arnold's portrayal of Conan involved a bigger, more powerful look, Momoa's body is highly muscular but lean enough so that he looks like he can move like a warrior. This is a role focused on both strength and stamina and Momoa should be able to display both. Because Jason Momoa wanted to build a functional, yet intimidating body, be began training with stunt coordinator David Leitch (Bourne Ultimatum) and Chad Stahelski (The Matrix). His goal was to gain 10lbs of lean muscle.
Jason Momoa Workout Routine
Generally speaking, gaining 10lbs of muscle is a pretty difficult feat. However, Jason Momoa was able to accomplish this through a challenging training routine. While I don't know all the details of Jason Momoa's workout routine for Conan, there are a few things that have been released. He trained in martial arts to help improve his fighting ability while not losing any agility. He did a lot of sword fighting in practice for the role. All in all, he trained for 6 hours per day for 6 straight weeks. It's likely that along with combat training, he focused on low rep, heavy weight training to develop lean, defined muscles.
To gain pure muscle mass, Jason Momoa's diet plan probably included a good amount of protein, healthy fat, and healthy carbs for energy. It's likely that he tried to avoid saturated fat and refined sugar. To gain weight, he would have had to eat at a caloric surplus. However, because he didn't want to put on fat, it's doubtful that he gorged on too much extra food. Usually 1-2lbs per week is the limit of how much fat free mass you can gain. For most people, gaining 5-10lbs of fat free mass in a year would be a great accomplishment.
I don't own the movie, or the pictures or the song. These pictures can be found all over the web, i merely put them all together and added a nice song to it. Made it for the Conan fans. song: Стефка Саботинова - Притури се планината Stefka Sabotinova - Prituri se planinata if this guy is appropriate or not, you decide... ok, enjoy p.s. Pozdrav našim slovanskim bratom bulgarom, imate očhen očhen krasivo prirodo!!! slava!
