Joe Manganiello on Working Out: ‘It’s About Pushing the Mind Past Those Perceived Limitations’

Originally posted 08/26/2015 08:51AM

Listen up! Ripped Joe Manganiello is talking about his exercise regimen.

Featured on the cover of Muscle & Fitness for the third time, the super muscular Magic Mike XXL actor, 38, describes his “lean-mass conditioning program” in the mag — and judging from his abs and arms, it’s highly effective.

Manganiello trains three to four times per week with trainer Ron Matthews, working out in what he calls “the pain cave.”

“We have these massive sets,” Manganiello told Muscle & Fitness, referring to sets of ten 225-lb. deadlifts or sets of four 300-lb. deadlifts. He went on to describe the mental challenge: “There’s a moment when there’s going to be 10 sets. And I’m on set 5 or even set 4, and I’m done. My body is starting to quit, I’m having a minor league panic attack in my brain because I can’t visualize doing the next rep, let alone the next set, and I want to quit,” he said. “And I think, ‘What am I doing this for? I don’t have a movie coming up that I’m training for specifically.’ And that’s where you’re going to grow. That’s the spot. That’s when you crack the pit, if you will. And that seed is inside.”

That drive and determination initially surfaced when he was growing up “a head and shoulder taller” than the other kids and turned to sports. “The first year I played football, I was the captain of the team. Then you get into high school. Just like The Breakfast Club, high school tries to put people into a category,” he said. “I got along with a group — the weirdo intellectuals — who generally hate jocks. And I also was the captain of a sports team. So I got along with the jocks.”

Clearly those jock days are not so far behind him! Manganiello still enjoys throwing himself into “long and tough” workouts, which he also described in his 2013 book, Evolution.

“[The book] was about putting yourself into a position where training becomes mental, not just physical. It’s about pushing the mind past those perceived limitations,” he told the magazine. “And the only thing I could say to people is you just have to back yourself into that corner and see what you’re made of.”

Manganiello, who is engaged to Sofia Vergara, also offered readers a bit of fitness advice.

“There’s always going to be somebody bigger than you in the gym and somebody else skinnier than you. You’re always going to be right in the middle — unless you’re me. I was the absolute skinniest. I was the one who couldn’t do one dip or one pull-up,” he says. “And even if you’re that person, there’s still hope for you. So just get in there and get to work.”
