The Terry Crews Workout has remained constant over the years. This is because Crews has brought his NFL style workout to Hollywood. From the NFL to The Expendables, Terry Crews uses a routine that focuses on the shoulders and back the first couple days. He then does cardio, before hitting his chest, arms and legs hard. From the NFL, to the Old Spice Commercials, to The Expendables, Terry Crews brings it.

Terry Crews loved being a part of Expendables. He plays Halle Ceasar, the weapons specialist of the group. In The Expendables, Terry Crews is known for having a gun that he likes to call his girlfriend. In real life, Terry Crews says that his guns are his big arms. Lately, he’s been hosting “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire,” and starring on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Crews works especially hard on his shoulders and biceps. This is because the Terry Crews workout is all about getting your body ready, “to rock the “Gun Show” wherever you go.”

For the Romanian Deadlift: (Terry Likes to use Heavier Weights, but doesn't go down as far as some people). He also says about your form on Romanian Deadlifts.


For the Pull Ups sets, you do just one set of each. But, you go to failure each exercise. Rest 30 seconds between each exercise in the Terry Crews Back Workout. For the Yates Row, try to go up in weight each set. For the Dumbbell Rows, you really want to concentrate, and squeeze your back all the way to the top. For the Hammer Strength rows, again, you want to add weight each set.

Concentrate on your back, as that’s where you really want the gains to be. On the last set of Hammer Strength Rows, again go to failure. Through each exercise, Terry Crews rests for 30 seconds between sets. Terry Crews says that you then do hyperextensions to make sure that your back is still all in one place. Terry Crews then finished with some abs to failure
