“Hello” Muscles! Find Out How Idris Elba Gets His Perfectly Sculpted Body

By  | 

Idris Elba has one hot body and the actor is reminding us of his god given features in a spread for Men’s Health. 

In the December issue of the publication, the Luther actor opened up about staying fit and having a muscular physique. “When I’m fit, I’m more focused,” Elba, 43, says. “I have greater patience and my temper is more stable, so I’m better in almost all my relationships. I’m more vigilant about the s— I put up with. I see clearer. When I’m out of shape, I’m emotionally lazy.”

The hottie goes on to explain that his main goal is to be “fight-ready.” But let’s not go as far as suggesting the 43-year-old should jump in the ring with Floyd Mayweather.

“Some guys want to be toned or want to jog for miles,” he said. “But my ultimate fitness goal is to be fight-ready. If I step into the ring, could I go toe-to-toe for five rounds? That’s what I strive for. That’s what I consider fit. I want to know that if I’m being wrestled to the ground, I’ve got the strength to fight a man off.”

And by the way, getting fight-ready for the star consists of doing a whole lot of burpees, which is usually people’s least favorite workout. “I do these burpees where you have to stand up, and then you kind of crawl on your hands to the burpee position, burpee, and then crawl back up and do a star jump,” he explains. “I do about 15 of those and then I’m done.”

We sure hope all the talk of Elba possibly being the first Black Bond comes to fruition because he would just be magical.
