Stephen Amell Is All About Parkour And Body Resistence
Doing his own stunts meant Arrow actor Stephen Amell was in the gym three to five days per week doing extreme workouts. And the word “extreme” is meant in the most literal sense. To get ready for his role of Oliver Queen/The Green Arrow, Amell went through parkour and bodyweight exercises to gain lean muscle.
While most people go straight for weights, Amell prefers to use his own body weight as resistance, which includes a lot of balance training! Now he’s training for an entirely new role as a professional wrestler in the Starz series Heelz.
