Henry's Trainer Shares Utah Photo, Fitness Advice


If you followed our updates on Henry's training for Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, you know Michael Blevins (@sworntoblack) was a main participant in that process. During filming in Detroit last year, Henry also showed up to support his trainer in several fitness competitions. Henry's work then continued in Utah and now in London, as Michael mentions in a new post on his site:

I was reminded on a run the other day of why I put my shoes on in the first place, it was not in fact to improve my VO2 max or change my ability to buffer lactic acid. In fact it wasn't conscious at all, it took running past a palace in Hyde Park for realization on the day to take place, and tomorrow it will change. Interestingly enough this is a daily occurrence, superficially the idea is to get fit, move faster, and move more, more times. The expression though that keeps this consistent is fostered in the aftermath or the unplanned. Suffering through purposeful effort builds resolution, relationships, a kindling of sorts for definition of our actions.

Read the rest at gritandteeth.com, and get ready to find out a lot more about Henry's training next week. We had a chance to sit down with Michael recently, to talk about his previous work with Henry and what's to come. Stay tuned for Part 1 of our exclusive, coming next week!

  1. Good to remind us that conditioning is not just for the body, but mind and spirit...and that it's not just a means to an end, but a continuing Journey. Thanks for being a supportive friend and great trainer helping Henry achieve the right strength/fitness/aesthetic goals for BvS, Mike. Thanks so much for sharing, Mike, Henry & HCN (y) :) <3

    1. Henry is the one who did the hard work here!!!!!

      'let us not forget that' .. I most certainly haven't. Trainers should not be looking for credit it comes as part of the job, everyone knows that, my friends are trainers and they know it has to come from the person they are training - they (the trainers can only hope there client will live up it) Henry did that - of his own body, mind and spirit ... that's a given. That takes tenacity and a lot of fortitude ... and Henry did it ...

    3. I agree to disagree respectfully. Let's not bring up past issues that are irrelevant, they only cause animosity that not wanted here. Do not attach Henry to other people's wrong doings, we had enough of that in the past and it is disrespectful to Henry. I agree Henry is the great force behind his success but it nice to know he has good people around him to motivate him. Micheal is a good trainer and good friend to Henry and again should not have to pay the price for someone else's bad behavior. With that said let's respect and support Henry and the people close to him as well, only good things will come from it.

    6. 4th it. I commend Henry on his restraint, he is passive and self controlled. I would have blown my top a long time ago if people kept on me over something some idiot did.he honors the famous words " if you have nothing nice to say...say nothing" he is very disciplined and respectful. Something men today lack.

    7. Trainers make a huge contribution and what MB has done for Henry cannot be ignored. In other words, this has been a top partnership and both are top lads!

    8. Absolutely, I agree. Micheal seems like a good guy as well. You don't have to like him but he deserves some respect.
      More so Henry.

    9. Let's not leave out Mark Twight. He started it all. He got Henry to the MOS shape.
