Chris Hemsworth is spending 2020 training for Thor: Love and Thunder—and he wants you to follow suit by training with Centr 6, a powerful and easy-to-follow new regimen in his health and fitness app, Centr.
The basics of Centr 6 are easy to remember: It’s a six-week program comprising of six rounds of six exercises, to be completed six days a week. Each workout takes 20 to 25 minutes and alternates between HIIT and strength training. The only equipment you’ll need is a set of dumbbells.
If that sounds simple, there’s a good reason: Centr 6 was inspired by the time Hemsworth spent training for his 2018 film 12 Strong, the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11. During shooting, the Australian actor says, workouts had to be improvised.
“We were in an old movie trailer in a remote desert in Albuquerque,” he says. “I had one set of dumbbells that I shared with my trainer, so we had to come up with a style of training that could be done anywhere with minimal equipment but was still effective and fun.”
For Hemsworth, Centr 6 works whether he’s preparing to play a soldier or the god of thunder. “This style of training is adaptable to any goal I need to achieve for a role, whether it’s bulking up, building lean mass, or increasing speed, agility, and endurance.” For the rest of us mortals, it’s great for any fitness goal, from having Hemsworthian abs to simply leading a healthier, more active lifestyle. However you use it, Centr 6 will definitely challenge you. And while there’s no substitute for hard work and commitment, Hemsworth says the biggest hurdle is just showing up. “Hopefully Centr can prove that making a resolution to be healthier or fitter doesn’t have to be complicated, time-consuming, or expensive.”
