Actor Jim Parsons is often perceived as a nerd from The Big Bang Theory TV show, where his character is a theoretical physicist Sheldon who is hard to imagine doing anything related to sports. Sheldon is critical and sarcastic about those who do a lot of training and workouts. This video will break the image of Sheldon and you won’t be able to perceive Parsons only as his character from the show anymore.
Parsons in real life is working hard on his muscles. His trainer Ben Bruno is famous for working with celebrities like Kate Upton, Buffalo Sabres star Jack Eichel, actor Casey Affleck, different fashion models and NBA player Roy Hibbert. Here is a 725 sled push with trainer Ben Bruno on top.
His workout is not only about pulling a sled. Here he does some squats with weight loaded upon the bar. And some people are really jealous of his power and strength.
I guess @therealjimparsons never got the memo that tall guys aren’t supposed to be good squatters. Very impressive. I love landmine squats because the arc of the bar helps encourage a posterior weight shift and helps to maintain an upright torso, which is particularly helpful for taller people who tend to fold forward when they squat. When you load it heavy, it also makes for an awesome core exercise. Onward and upward @donsaladino
Do you want some more motivational videos from his workout? Here we go!
After crushing these 1-arm sled rows with 400 pounds, I'm trying to convince @therealjimparsons to wear a sleeveless tuxedo to the Oscars tonight ??He makes it look easy, but make no mistake, this is very, very impressive. Let's hope that Hidden Figures wins "Best Picture" tonight! @donsaladino, next time you're in LA we should all train together and see if we can beat him ??
Well it's official, @therealjimparsons (aka Sheldon) is a beast on the sled. Here he's crushing sled rows with 425 pounds and making it look easy. @donsaladino, he's a machine! As a point of reference, this is more weight than a lot of professional athletes I've trained, and we actually trained together during this workout and he moved the sled much more explosively than I did. He also demonstrates a great squat pattern for someone of his height. Very, very impressive stuff Jim!
