Stone Cold Steve Austin was one of my wrestling heroes growing up. As the beer drinking bad-ass, he was electric in the ring and developed one of the most popular personas in WWE history. Having since retired from wrestling, Austin has pursued his acting career in full force. Austin recently scored a role in the upcoming action movie, The Expendables. Even after all these years, he still maintains his muscular look with a workout routine that isn’t overly complicated.

Stone Cold Steve Austin Workout Routine:

Squat – 5 or 6 sets, 6-8 reps
Straight-legged deadlift – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
Barbell shrugs – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
Dumbbell shrugs – 2 sets, 6-8 reps

Bench – 3 or 4 sets, 6-8 reps
Incline bench – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
30 cardio

Barbell rows – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
Dumbbell rows – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
Barbell shrugs – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
Dumbbell shrugs – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
30 minutes cardio

Barbell press – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
Dumbbell press – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
Close-grip bench – 2 sets, 6-8 reps
30 minutes cardio

Steve Austin rarely executes less than 6 reps because of the risk of injuries. Also, he executes a few sets (10 reps) to warm up.

If Steve Austin is to busy to workout on some of his workout days (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday) for example if he’s been on the road then he do only one set, 40 reps on the squats without warm ups and Austin says it covers all.

The Ketogenic Diet Plan

Stone Cold Steve Austin follows an unusual type of diet plan. When asked to describe this diet plan, he had this to say

“Ketogenic diet plans is a diet plan on which you avoid carbs all week, feel like hell for four days, then load up every two hours on weekends.”

A cyclic ketogenic diet plan is a low-carbohydrate diet plan with intermittent periods of high or moderate carbohydrate consumption. When following a low carbohydrate diet plan, for the first few days, there is an adaptation period during which most people report feeling run-down or tired. The slightest exertion causes muscles to burn. People feel irritable, out of sorts, and unable to make decisions. For most people these feelings disappear after the adaptation period, however, and are replaced with feelings of calm and balance, consistent energy.

Not everyone is dedicated enough to wait long enough for the body to adjust to this diet plan, so the potential for burnout on a non-cyclic ketogenic diet plan (like Atkins) can be high. People crave Carbohydrates during ketosis, for physiological reasons. During a hypocaloric ketogenic diet plan, this temptation becomes even stronger, as the carb cravings are combined with the usual hunger pangs that accompany reduced calories.

A CK diet plan offers a way to combat this. It offers a cyclical a carb-up wherein the individual under this diet plan will change their diet plan to comprise mostly complex Carbohydrates, limiting dietary fats as well as sucrose and fructose. Since the glycogen stores in their liver and muscles are depleted, these Carbohydrates go straight to refilling them, instead of being added to the body’s fat stores. For this reason, the amount of calories consumed during a refeed can be far above an individual’s maintenance intake.

The timing, duration and macronutrient composition of a refeed are crucial to the diet plan’s overall success and Stone Cold Steve Austin seems to have no trouble at all following such a diet plan. Although, as an avid beer drinker,  Austin has never maintained a huge focus on diets either.
