Forget the paleo diet, it’s time for the caveman workout! Matthew McConaughey told Men’s Fitness that’s he’s been using rocks to get a hard body. McConaughey, who appears on the cover of the April edition of the magazine, says the activity requires more finesse than it might seem.
“It’s not as simple as it seems,” he says. “You shift the weight from high above your head, in your right arm, then your left, then rest it on your shoulders, adding more weight to your back, then your legs.”
The workout challenges more than just the arms. “You get a full-body workout just by finding out how many positions you can manage without having to set the weight on the ground. You also discover the stronger and weaker spots in your physique.”
McConaughey also says that being fit is important for his career. “I’m not a professional athlete, but I have a job where I like to look good and be as healthy as possible.”
