The 25 Fittest Men in the World

ADEWALE AKINNUOYE-AGBAJE

3.    Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

To play “Heavy Duty” for the G.I. Joe movie series, the British actor had to undergo his own version of basic training.

“In four weeks I lost 35 pounds,” says Akinnuoye-Agbaje, “and I’m thinking, ‘Why am I subjecting myself to this punishment? I’m only acting, I’m not a real superhero!'” Through a strict diet and fitness program that emphasized muscle confusion and intense cardio, the former star of Oz and Lost began to feel like a real warrior. “Muscles started popping out where I didn’t even know I had them,” he says, noting that his character’s gun weighed 120 pounds alone. “You see your body changing form like the Hulk and don’t even recognize it.”
