Charlie Hunnam’s Workout Routine Will Kick Your Butt, Without Any Equipment

Charlie Hunnam never needed an outrageous physique to become a star, but his favorite workout routine always leaves him chiseled and camera-ready. The British-born Hunnam began his career on Queer as Folk, but soon shot to stardom as Jax Teller on the FX series Sons of Anarchy and then a litany of movie roles.

In Sons of Anarchy, Hunnam needed to maintain the physique of a tough guy biker — strong and intimidating, but not overly muscular. Since then, the 5’11” Hunnam has generally maintained that lean muscularity thanks to a workout routine heavy in body weight exercises.

In this article, we’ll discuss Charlie Hunnam’s regular workout routine, as well as his stats and diet.

Current Stats

Height: 180 cm – ‎5′11” 

Weight:‎ 88 kg – 194 lbs

Age: 42 years old 

Birthday: 10th of April, 1980

Workout Principles & Routine

Hunnam’s philosophy when it comes to working out is simple: chase your endorphins, respect your core, and prioritize a clean diet. If you train hard, you’ll feel good, and if you nourish your body with whole foods, you’ll recover quicker. Simple.

Hunnam famously hit the gym in the evenings after filming for 12-14 hours each day — working out another 2 hours each night to stay physically and mentally sharp for the next day. His routines relied on bodyweight exercises and high repetitions in order to stay chiseled without bulking up too much.

Monday & Tuesday

1. Pull-Ups (3 sets, 25 reps) 

2. Dips (3 sets, 25 reps) 

3. Squats (6 sets, 25 reps) 

4. Push-Ups (6 sets, 25 reps) 

5. Ab Exercises (20 minutes)


Rest, or low impact exercise like yoga or pilates.

Thursday & Friday

1. Squats (3 sets, 10 reps)

2. Pull-Ups (3 sets, 20 reps)

3. Push-ups (3 sets, 20 reps)

4. Inverted Rows (3 sets, 20 reps)

5. Parallel Bar Dips (3 sets, 20 reps)

6. Hanging Knee Raises (3 sets, 10 reps)

7. Plank (60 seconds)

8. Wall Sit (60 seconds)


Rest, or light aerobic activity like walks, jogs, or biking


Like all successful Hollywood actors with good physiques, Hunnam knows the importance of lean protein in his diet. He often begins his day with an egg salad sandwich and some fruit, or maybe some oatmeal with an omelet to mix it up.

He also likes to drink a protein shake in the mid-morning to keep his protein high and his energy levels static. For lunch and dinner, Hunnam prescribes to the basic bodybuilder plate: one third lean protein like chicken or steak, one third carbs (rice or sweet potatoes), and one third vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, or carrots, especially).

And don’t forget another small protein shake before bed to keep the body and brain fueled throughout the night before another early wake-up call to film.
