I’ve always liked Michael Jai White. The dude’s super talented but lately hasn’t been getting A-list roles. But I am enjoying the shit out of him as Bronze Tiger on Arrow now.

And if you’ve noticed White in movies lately like Never Back Down 2, you’ve probably noticed how jacked he was.

For a guy in his mid-forties, Michael Jai White still has an incredibly lean and muscular body.

So how does he pull it off? I don’t have Michael Jai White’s exact workout routine, but from what I can tell the man is also an avid martial artist so part of his physique can be attributed to his training.

But if you’re looking for this best way to build a super muscular body like Michael Jai White, then all you really need to do is focus on lifting some heavy ass weights and focus on getting stronger over time. That’s the best way to pack on muscle fast and efficiently.

For example, you could do the following workout routine below.

  1. Hello,you have a wonder family i have been a fan seen bone and bones all your movies am buying great actor i love your work never a dull moment.

    1. you’re still super young, still going through puberty so you’re naturally going to continue gaining weight and even possibly get taller. Don’t worry too much man, you’re crazy young.

    2. Just focus on eating lots of good food and get into doing calisthenics. Weight training may stunt your growth at your age but you can still do push ups, dips, pull ups, etc. Do your best. Even if you can only do one push up, one pull up, do it, and do it again until you can do 2. This will test the strength of your will power.
