Jake Gyllenhaal Did 2,000 Sit-Ups a Day for 'Southpaw' Training

Jake Gyllenhaal takes his dog Leo for a walk around the neighborhood on Monday (April 20) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old actor’s movie Southpaw is going to be released later this year and now his trainer Terry Claybon is revealing how he got in shape for the role as a professional boxer.

Jake started off with three hours of workouts a day, which were pushed to six hours a day after two months. Something he would do each day was 2,000 sit-ups!

“Gradually we built up, day-by-day, to 2,000. It takes time to do that,” Terry told Yahoo.

    Sorry that’s way too much punishment to put your body through, IMO. I think that kind of extreme training is nuts. It’s a movie. He could do serious damage to himself and not even realize it. Not worth it. Movie special effects can do anything, even a kid with a computer can do photoshop. I think Jake is way too obsessive. First he lost weight then he gained it.
