Thursday might be a good time to take a day off. Henry Cavill would take days off for recovery, especially when starting the Superman workout. At first, it’s important to focus on form. Mark Twight, the Superman workout trainer, says he wants his actors to do ‘active recovery.’


This means that if you’re gonna take a day off, you still have to do an hour of cardio. Run/walk/cardio machine, anything to promote ‘active recovery.’ Once Henry Cavill was into the zone, he started doing full, 2.5 hour workouts as part of his Thursday routine.
