Max Irons Talks 'Host' Workout Regime

T.T.: Now you’re about to star in your second movie, “The Host.” How are you getting in shape for your role?

M.I.: The most effective part of my workout has been interval runs. That is where you power-up the treadmill and run as fast as you can for about six to ten seconds. Then you slow down for about 24 seconds, still keeping your heart rate up. You do this for a total of 10–15 minutes, depending on how conditioned you are. If you do it with the proper form, you’ll get a great overall workout, strengthen your heart and burn some calories. It’s intense.

T.T.: Have you been watching your diet?

M.I.: Right now I am eating mostly protein and vegetables. It’s so hard giving up carbs. I love all of them — bread, pasta and especially pizza!
