Here is How the Actor Gained the Appropriate Physique for His Superboy Role
After he landed the “Superboy” role, Joshua Orpin made a post on his Instagram acknowledging that the role was a very tasking one that would require lots of physical transformations on his part. To get a body that was as ripping as the comic Conner Kent, he made a simple 4 step routine which included working out with his co-star Alan Ritchson.
Orpin’s workout goals are outlined below:
- Don’t eat anything that you want to/ tastes good
- Pick up heavy things all the time. Like, every day
- Work with Alan Ritchson and feel inadequate
- Repeat until jacked and shredded
To achieve this goal, Joshua always worked out with Titan co-star Alan Ritchson who plays the character Hank Hall, AKA Hawk. Although the workout goal seems very easy, Josh noted that it took a lot of dedication and working out through two lockdowns around different countries.
But however unachievable the goal of looking as good as the comic Conner Kent seems, Josh is committed to pulling through with it as long as he plays the character of Superboy.
