It may not sound like it's that far away, but having to wait until Feb. 16 to see Black Panther in theaters feels like an eternity. With such a stellar cast — Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, and Forest Whitaker, just to name-drop a few — and a compelling plot, it's safe to say that this just might be the movie of the year.
But there's one cast member of Black Panther in particular who is known to make us weak at the knees, and seeing him in the final trailer reminded us just how drool-worthy he really is. We're talking about Michael B. Jordan, who plays the antagonist in the film, Erik Killmonger, and you may recognize him (and his abs) from the 2015 Rocky installment Creed, in which he played the lead role.
If you've never laid eyes on Michael, we're about to rock your world. He's one of the fittest dudes out there, and he's so dedicated to his fitness routine that the Nike Training Club app has three different workouts that were inspired by Michael. There's Quick Quarter, a 15-minute bodyweight workout that features challenging plyometric exercises to burn major calories. You can also try Slim Chance 2.0, which mimics the typical workout of a boxer. You'll go through a lot of quick feet drills and rotational core work. Finally, there's The Big 4, a workout designed for a villain — we're talking barbell work, like squatting, pushing, and pulling.
It's no wonder Michael is looking
so perfect so fit these days. He's training like a professional athlete! Here are some intimate shots of him doing what he does best — sweating, working out, and stealing our hearts all at once. You might want to sit down for this.
