I was watching a few of those Youtube vids that show how the super hero actors get into shape. You'd think that basic gym work would be self evident but a lot of them seem to be doing calisthenic/crossfit type workouts instead. Chris Hemsworth (Thor) even said in an interview that for the first movie it was strictly bodybuilding type workouts but he moved to more functional stuff for his other films.

Anyone have any idea why? A basic bodybuilding workout with the juice they have access to should be the most expedient way to get into 'look good for the camera' shape.

Sounds better and they want to give the impression of actually being able to do all of those stunts, etc.

They get big regardless as long as they stimulate the muscle while they're on hormones. The rest i assume is just a bunch of shit, cuck trainers stroking their egos thinking that their elaborate master-trainer plyometrics are working wonders for their client when it's really the trenbolone.

Bodybuilding--and all the exercises that go with it--is seen as vain.  Plus it's boring to watch someone do machine curls

I'm guessing these actors all do plenty of isolation exercises, that's just not what they publicize
