“We were the tip of the tip of the spear,” says Reyes of his special-forces unit, the first to invade Baghdad in 2003. Their experiences helped shape HBO’s Generation Kill, the gritty Iraq war miniseries in which Reyes played himself and served as military adviser.

His training philosophy eschews traditional bodybuilding techniques. “I’m more interested in real-world warrior strength,” he says. “I call it combat yoga.” Through body-weight circuits, kickboxing, and powerlifting (when they had access to weights), Reyes introduced the actors to the warrior mind-set. “It’s a sensibility where there are no limits,” he says. “It’s a lifelong endeavor.”
