4 Workouts Down on Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Training Program

I watched a YouTube video of a guy who got to work out with Chris Hemsworth in NYC after some time following his training program called Centr. We’ve all seen the videos and other content about how people like Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, or Hugh Jackman have had to get in top shape for their superhero movie roles. I’m a huge superhero movie nerd, so I’ve always been interested. I’m 4 workouts in on Chris Hemsworth’s Centr Program - its a collaboration between Chris, his Thor stunt double, and his personal trainer. It’s a good take on the meal planning and workout program app. Several programs to pick from for workouts that progress toward what Chris does when he’s going hardcore Thor mode. I’m starting at the beginner program to build my base before starting to climb the ladder to full Thor workouts. I’m enjoying it more than Apple Fitness+ - the instructors, music, 6 set structure and connection to one of my favorite Marvel characters is a little more motivating for me. The most motivating thing is the Thor level workout that I’m trying to work up to. It’ll probably require me to go into a gym when I get to that level of workout - but for now and in between Thor level conditioning there are some really good any time any where workouts that I can put on repeat enough over the weeks that I’ll memorize them. They are all structured in 6 exercises and 6 sets - so it pushes you with volume in an structured 30 min time frame and I can be sure that I’m sweating every day. I’ll keep everybody posted on how this goes. It’s my December challenge to get daily workouts in the Centr program, and to plan meals that align with the Centr program. The approach on the nutrition side is about serving sizes and meal planning. They give good high level guidance on how to structure your calories/macros and the meal ideas they have are easily adapted to family meal planning by changing the serving sizes being prepped. I wanted to accept a tough challenge for December to push myself. I’ve been stuck in the 290s for 60 days or so and want to break into the 280s early in January. It took me a long time to rebuild my thinking habits and learn how to be kind to myself enough that I could get excited about accepting a fitness challenge again. I worked through deep lows of not caring and hurting myself and my family with my eating and thinking habits. I then worked through a pretty long phase of just trying to improve my eating habits and not feeling bad about what I was eating - and that was what has made the biggest difference in the first 30-40 pounds. After that mindset adjustment I worked through a big walking phase, which my dog loved. I had sporadic weight lifting streaks throughout that 90 day phase. The walking really helped me think about things to make sure work and family stuff didn’t get in the way of my personal goals. All this to say two things: 1) I’ve come a long way. And I’m excited to accept the next challenge. 2) Even if you are in that deep dark place where you are eating to numb how you feel - and a significant relationship in your life is strained because of those eating habits - and you eat to numb the feelings of shame that come when you know that significant relationship is being hurt… just know that there is hope. I know that you’ve tried a lot before and progress came and went. We just need to work on how we are thinking about ourselves, and who we want to be so we can start to think about hope. Then it will come. We can do this together. Stay healthy my friends.

Key Takeaways

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
