Spartacus: Behind the Scenes with Manu Bennett
From sand dune running to kettle bell lifts, this New Zealander shows Men's Fitness how he stays ripped for his role on Spartacus War of the Damned.
In this behind the scenes video, actor Manu Bennett takes a break from our Spartacus warrior workout photo shoot (which you can find in the January 2013 issue of Men’s Fitness) to tell us how he keeps fit. And surprisingly, he doesn’t spend hours with the bench press to stay ripped for his role as Crixus on Spartacus: War of the Damned, like you might guess. He trains outdoors, maxing the benefits of New Zealand’s rugged terrain. From running sand dunes to surfing the roughest waves, Bennett reveals how he scores his full body workouts to stay in gladiator shape.
