In order to look big and bad on screen, the actors needed to get big and bad in real life. Preparing for these roles required an intense training camp and continued time in the gym for maintenance. Although each of them had backgrounds in their respective athletics—football, martial arts, UFC—they all learned how to hone their workouts to improve their already legendary bodies.

Parts of The Expendables 2 were filmed in Bulgaria, where muscle-making staples like 24-hour gyms and beef were tough to find. The cast had to make a few adjustments to their training and diets, but they used their health and fitness knowledge to get the job done. The actors' commitment to their roles is a great reminder that, even though it takes a little extra work, you can maintain fitness wherever you go!
