There are three features that likely come to mind when we think of the character Tarzan:

loincloth, a long untamed mane of hair, and the physique of a human whose been swinging through the trees.

So when Alexander Skarsgard signed up for David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan,there was an understanding that there would be an accompanying workout and diet plan with the role. But no one expected the 6’ 4” True Blood star to go as all out as he did. “I’ve never seen anyone more hardworking,” says his trainer, Magnus Lygdbäck, who has made a career out of conditioning musicians like Harry Styles and Aviici. “I had to force him to take days off sometimes. He was eating food out of a box for about eight months, and not a drop of alcohol.”
