Alright you fitness junkies out there, I need a little help with something. A buddy of mine is writing a full length zombie movie, and has charged me with stunt coordination (As well as the job of treasurer, but that isn't so important).
The first scene takes place in October, when the outbreak starts. An infection runs rampant through a highschool, and spreads throughout the city, then the world, creating the ever epical zombies we all know and love. And they arent your decrepid, slow, falling apart zombies. They are more like the zombies in Day of the Dead or I Am Legend. Badass Zombies.
The second section is 2-3 months later, when pretty much the entire world is infected and there are but a few survivors left. The movie obviously follows the survivors.
More to the point. These survivors (my cast) need to look like men who have spent a few months fighting and working it out in the wasteland of what was society.
What I am asking for here is for a couple people to help me build a general workout plan for the cast. My buddy wants the second section to show noteable progress in the physique of the slayers. The why isnt important. I need help creating a workout plan for these guys which will add mass and tone to their bodies, and I have about 3-4 months (The October scene will be the first shot coming up here in a few weeks, and the rest of the filming will happen in a few months)
I was thinking of putting them on strict SS for 3 months, then adding in HIIT and more gymnastics style training for the last month while cutting down their consumption, to cut down the fat and give them a more sinewy look. Im wondering if it is possible to create a noticeable difference in just 3-4 months using this, or if something more extreme will need to be done. Ill personally be doing these workouts as well since Im one of the Slayers (who gets turned into a zombie for an epic battle, of course)
Any other suggestions?
