Get Oscar Fit (and Tough): The Departed

Apparently the Sugar girls are not the only ones totally obsessed with the Oscars...

I recently came across this great old fashioned, street style workout based on the Oscar nominated movie The Departed from Gregory Joujon-Roche who thinks that being mob fighting ready (like Leo's character) is more about the brute strength that comes from growing up on the tough streets (not from a fancy gym).

"Want to pretend you're gearing up to fight the mob? Shake up your regular fitness routine by giving these moves a try. (Note: This workout is intended for people who regularly strength train. If you're a true couch potato, start slowly and work your way up to this challenge.)

On the first day, work on sheer strength with bench presses, straight bar curls and military presses. Don't worry about counting set and reps. The goal is to go heavy and feel the power.

On the second day, tone and condition with rear dips off the end of your bed or coffee table -- dozens of them -- to blast your triceps and upper back. Then do old-fashioned sit-ups and pull-ups -- as many as you can, and then a few more.

Repeat this cycle over the next two days, and then rest on the fifth day."

Now say it with me: Arggggggghhhhhh! Too Demi Moore, GI Man-ish for you? Check out this less intense workout based on last year's Best Picture winner, Crash.
