Mads Mikkelsen Workout


Mads Mikkelsen Workout

The workout we have come up with today to post is the Mads Mikkelsen Workout! This one is inspired by the physique that Mads Mikkelsen 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.

Mads Mikkelsen Workout:

Training Volume:

3-5 days per week


Mikkelsen says when he has time off he bikes for 3 hours a week, plays tennis, and does the things he loves.  So we’ll be getting active using some of our resources 3 days per week and I’ll also be having you tack on some calisthenics as well.

Mads Mikkelsen Workout: Calisthenics and Activity

The calisthenics portion of this workout is optional considering it’s not what Mikkelsen would seem to prefer, but it is being programmed specifically to get you into the toned and slim physique that he often shows off.


Complete designated rep count with as many sets as it takes.

Feel free to split up the movements one after another, or complete each in total before moving onto the next.

Push Ups


Sit Ups



100 (50 each leg)



Chin Ups


Activity Options:

Mikkelsen’s go-to activity is biking and tennis; but he does mention the fact that he simply likes to do the things he loves.

For that reason you can also opt for this when it comes to getting active.

Of course, if you’re not going to you should probably just hit some cardio, but for now we’ll list some other activities you can choose:

If this doesn’t seem like it’s going so well, you can opt for traditional cardio for 60 minutes:

  • Treadmill Run
  • Elliptical
  • Bike (High Intensity)
  • Row Machine
  • Stair Master
Mads Mikkelsen Workout: Bike, Run, Hike or Track Steps

On your days off, to attempt to replicate Mikkelsen’s high metabolism, I suggest staying active and burning some extra calories.

For that reason I suggest either biking, running, hiking, or at the very least tracking your steps.

For you step trackers out there, this is what we’re going to be looking for:

Track Steps High Count:

10k Steps for the day

Track Steps Low Count:

3-5k Steps for the day
