Jake Gyllenhaal has been doing some heavy prep to get ready for his role in new film Southpaw which is due to be released later this year.
He spent months before the movie started shooting training with former professional boxer Terry Claybon who was wanting to turn him from the gaunt figure he had been in the previous movie he had been working on – to looking like a professional boxer.

“Gyllenhaal was burning so many calories through rigorous workouts that his diet didn’t need to be terribly strict. He did stick to carbs in the morning and protein in the evening. I started him off with three hours of workouts a day: An hour-and-a-half in the morning and an hour-and-a-half in the evening. After two months, the workouts got pushed to six hours a day: Three hours of boxing in the morning and three hours of strengthening, conditioning, and cardio at night. Gradually we built up, day-by-day, to 2,000. It takes time to do that.”
Jake had just finished filming Nightcrawler, for which he dropped almost 15kg’s for. Once filming had wrapped, he returned to his normal weight before adding 7kg’s of muscle mass for Southpaw.
