If you haven’t seen Logan yet, my advice to you is this: go now. Even if you don’t like superhero movies, you’ll be blown away. It’s a grim, gothic, post-apocalyptic western road trip chock-full of visceral action sequences and tearjerking scenes. It explores themes of loss, mortality, aging and despair, grounded character development and plenty of helpless goons being sliced up. Awesome.
It’s a pretty fitting way to retire a character that Hugh Jackman has been portraying for almost 17 years since Bryan Singer’s first X-Men movie was released way back in 2000. Even though it’s a pretty depressing flick, it’s amazing that Jackman’s last turn as the angry Canadian mutant is probably his best, most affecting work.
Physically, Wolverine’s bodily appearance has changed to reflect his world-weary melancholy. Jackman has always been ripped in order to play the superhero, but this time around his muscle mass has been less dense and more lean and sinuous. It’s still impressive though, and Jackman has always been renowned throughout the X-Men franchise for his ability to get fit fast.
If you’d like to know what it takes to don the yellow spandex and become a superhero, then look no further. Hugh Jackman has shared his workout regime for Logan with the world. If this doesn’t motivate you to hit the gym, nothing will.
Usually, when Jackman plays Wolverine, his diet consists of a hell of a lot of protein coupled with six straight days in the gym. Plenty of boiled chicken and dozens of eggs are usually the only things on the menu for months. But this time things were different. In a recent interview on The Late Show, Jackman revealed that he went through an intense dehydration regime in order to achieve the gaunt, slightly-emaciated look the movie’s tone called for.
In addition to his brutal workouts, Jackman increased his water intake to an astonishing three gallons a day prior to shooting, but would stop drinking anything at all 36 hours before he was required to appear on camera shirtless. As you can imagine, a dehydration regime is pretty dangerous, and shouldn’t be attempted without strict guidance from a personal trainer and medical expert. “You lose like ten pounds of water weight,” Jackman stated, “don’t do this at home.”
“I’d already shed 20 pounds, through exercise and a very lean diet, before I embarked on that 36-hour period in which I drank nothing and ate very little and I knew I was pushing myself and my body to the limit,” Jackman added, “But the non-consumption of liquids is a very clever bodybuilders’ trick for giving one sunken cheeks and sunken eyes and, boy, did it work. Maybe just a little too well.” Testosterone Boosters are helpful when you need to recover quickly or bouncing between work and the gym.

NO PROPRIETARY BLENDS
True Grit supplements have absolutely nothing to hide. That’s why there are no proprietary blends in any True Grit product.

That’s what other brands expect you to do if they’re using miniscule amounts of ingredients just to claim it’s on the label. With True Grit you can trust that you’re getting only the best supplements formulated using the best scientific research.*
HOW IT WORKS
SUPPORT SERUM TESTOSTERONE*
One of the researched key ingredients in True Grit Test Booster is PrimaVie® (shilajit). This rare organo-mineral compound is obtained from the steep rocks of different formations found in the Himalayas and other high mountains! The shilajit in True Grit Test Booster is assured of optimal levels of bioactive components such as fulvic acid and dibenzo-pyrones.*
SUPPORT FREE TESTOSTERONE AND AID IN LOWERING ESTRADIOL*
Most of the testosterone in the blood is bound to a protein called sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). Your free testosterone isn’t bound into anything, so it just circulates in your veins and can be instantly utilized by your body, which makes it very effective. So you could have very high levels of total testosterone, but if all of that testosterone is bound to SHBG, your benefits won’t be so great as the testosterone wouldn’t be in constant use by your body.
Fortunately, True Grit Test Booster makes full use of science in this regard, and includes a clinical dose of a chemical compound called Boron.* Boron has been suggested in human clinical research to support free testosterone and aid in decreasing estradiol.* With True Grit Test Booster, you not only get the ingredients you need to free up bound testosterone, but you also get the estradiol-lowering advantage to ensure your free testosterone can get the job done.
DECREASE THE CORTISOL TO TESTOSTERONE RATIO*
Cortisol is the main stress hormone in the body and when it’s elevated has a catabolic (muscle breakdown) effect on tissue and is associated with a decrease in anabolic (muscle growth) hormones like IGF-1 and GH. With the body in a catabolic state — it starts breaking down muscle and storing fat!*
To combat this, True Grit Test Booster has a researched dose of Sensoril® Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), a powerful compound that has been suggested in human clinical research to support healthy cortisol balance. Reduced cortisol levels help put your body in a more anabolic state and supports optimal testosterone levels, which is ideal for building muscle and strength.*
Trigonella foenum-graecum, also known as Fenugreek, is an annual leguminous herb that belongs to the Fabaceae family. It is grown extensively and is native to many Asian, Middle Eastern, and European countries.
What’s more, it has a long history of use as a traditional herb and continues to garner the interest of researchers around the world for its potential biological effects.
The Fenugreek used in True Grit Test Booster is standardized to 50% saponins.
Brassica oleracea (broccoli) powder extract supplies diindolylmethane (DIM). This nitrogen containing compound continues to be the focus of modern research. It is one of the many organic molecules in cruciferous vegetables being investigated by scientists because of its complex interactions in the body with downstream target proteins.*
PrimaVie® is a patented clinical-strength dose of shilajit, which is a rare organo-mineral compound obtained from steep rocks of different formations found in the Himalayas and other high mountains. Shilajit is obtained from carefully selected rocks and is put through a patented technology where it is purified and standardized in order to yield a consistent and efficacious form.* As a result, only PrimaVie® contains optimal levels of bioactive components such as fulvic acid and dibenzo-pyrones.*
The Fenugreek used in True Grit Test Booster is standardized to 50% saponins.
WITHANIA SOMNIFERA (SENSORIL®)
Sensoril® Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is a potent adaptogen that has been scientifically shown to significantly lower serum cortisol levels. High levels of cortisol are counterproductive to your gains because it’s a catabolic hormone, which can lead to muscle breakdown.
Chlorophytum borivilianum, popularly known as Safed Musli, is an important herb in the Ayurvedic Materia Medica.
Yacon is a fiberous tuber that supplies FOS (fructooligosaccharides) and phenolic acids such as, chlorogenic acid, ferulic acid and caffeic acid. In emerging pre-clinical data, Yacon tuber extract and chlorogenic acid showed a significant inhibition effect of testosterone degradation.*
Bladderwrack, also known as Fucus vesiculosus, has garnered the attention of scientists investigating its potential for supporting healthy hormone balance.*
