Dennis Quaid Workout


Dennis Quaid Workout

The workout we have come up with today to post is the Dennis Quaid Workout! This one is inspired by the physique that Dennis Quaid has built and maintained for many roles during his career. Don’t forget that nutrition plays an important role when striving to achieve various fitness and strength goals!

Research process for celebrities/characters/etc:

When we are researching workouts for different anime characters, celebrities, cartoon characters, athletes, politicians, etc… We go through a fairly large deep dive into the data we can find available through books, movies, comic books, interviews, articles that have been written, and we often even reach out to contact the individuals to gather data if at all possible. Then using our education and knowledge we formulate workout information based on what the research and outreach information obtained.

Looking for nutritional information to help get you on track with your health and fitness goals? We also have you covered, on our Unorthodox Training Nutrition page we have laid out many of the basics for nutrition information that has helped to consistently get results. We go into nutrition more in-depth in our membership program as well. Combining fitness and nutrition routines or plans together can allow you to optimize your health and fitness with your lifestyle. Your nutrition should be set-up in a way that helps you to create a sustainable health and fitness routine to achieve your desired health and fitness results.

Dennis Quaid Workout:

Training Volume:

3-5 days per week


For this one we’re going to be mainly working with cycling (or if you’d like to sub running like Quaid did the majority of his life) and yoga.  I’ll also be building you two workout routines that can be utilized in a gym (one upper body focus and one lower body focus) so that you can also build this into your routine.  Quaid does mention the fact that you still have to get in there and get it done; although, it’s not the priority or main basis of his workout routine.

Dennis Quaid Workout: Sample Schedule

Monday: Cycling [or Running]

Tuesday: Yoga or Upper Body Training

Wednesday: Cycling [or Running]

Thursday: Yoga or Lower Body Training

Dennis Quaid Workout: Cycling [or Running]

On two days a week you’re going to be training with a moderate amount of cycling and/or running, but then we’ll scale it up to a long distance variation on Friday.

Here’s how you’ll do it (to keep it nice and simple for you):

Regular Cycling Days: 60 Minutes of Biking (or Running)

Long Distance Cycling Days: 120 Minute of Biking (or Running)

If you’d like to step it up a notch you can turn your “Regular” Cycling Days into aerobic concentrated training days and use High Intensity Interval Training variations in order to vary your biking in and out of higher intensity; changing your RPMs and Level of Intensity (difficulty level) every minute, or few minutes, for 45-60 minutes.
