Building Muscle like Captain America
Getting into Captain America shape made the actor want to puke. But this was a real transformation. How did he do it?
According to an interview on Pop Sugar, the actor underwent four months of "brutal" workouts for 2 hours every working day. When he wasn't working out, he was consuming protein. As Chris Evans said, "You get to the point where you just can't even look at another piece of chicken."
Of course, Chris was on a tight schedule and the body transformation had to happen fast. While eating a lot of quality protein and working out hard are important for building muscle, given more time it does not have to be a miserable experience.
