Trade the Fat for Muscle With Taron Egerton’s ‘Robin Hood’ Workout


Taron Egerton Kinobody Workout

When “Robin Hood” was released in November 2018, fans were more excited to see Taron Egerton than the movie.

Even though the movie was a flop, it was worth it to see the physical transformation of Egerton. The British actor lost extra fat and packed on quite a bit of muscle in preparation for the role. He actually shot the movie “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” before “Robin Hood,” so he was able to get two movies with one body transformation.

Taron Egerton grabbed the interest of viewers when he appeared in “Kingsman: The Secret Service” back in 2014. In this movie, he played a street thug named Eggsy who ends up joining an underground spy organization.

Three years after the first movie, Egerton shocked fans in the shirtless scenes of the second installment of “Kingsman.” The 29-year-old actor brought the same jacked body for the “Robin Hood” movie.

In “Robin Hood,” Taron Egerton plays Robin of Loxley, a former lord in England who was cheated out of his wealth and plans to steal it back to share with the commoners. Egerton got jacked for the role, but he avoided the enhanced look we usually see with actors playing superheroes. The actor spent nine weeks to transform his body. (He also had to spend a lot of time mastering his archery.)

Kinobody has helped thousands of men and women to transform their bodies. No matter what your goal is, you can find a program on Kinobody that’s proven to get you results. For a physique like Taron Egerton, the Bodyweight Mastery Program is an excellent option.

Key Characteristics of Taron Egerton’s Physique

Taron Egerton is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs around 170 pounds. During his body transformation, he kept his weight stable. Robin Hood takes from the rich and gives it to the poor; Egerton took the weight from the fat and gave it to the muscle!

It’s challenging to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. In order to achieve this seemingly impossible task, you must follow a smart nutrition and exercise plan. This “Robin Hood” workout will give your body enough stimulus to build muscle and you can follow the nutrition plan included in the Bodyweight Mastery Program.

Taron Egerton’s “Robin Hood” Workout Routine

You can get stronger and build muscle by progressively overloading your muscles. For this purpose, weightlifting works great and most Kinobody programs are heavy weightlifting programs. However, lifting weights isn’t the only way to build muscle…

You can progressively overload your muscles and get jacked using your own bodyweight. Unfortunately, though, most bodyweight programs are designed for absolute beginners and they’re horrible for people who want to challenge themselves and transform their bodies. If you have a few years of weightlifting experience under your belt, you’ll barely break a sweat with those programs and they won’t help you build more muscle.

That’s why Kinobody created a bodyweight exercise program. With this program, you can become a beast in eight months without touching a weight. If you think you’re too advanced for a bodyweight program, here’s a challenge you can test yourself with. You can reach master level within eight months with the Kinobody Bodyweight Mastery Program.

Workout Notes

Muscles adapt to the work you put them through. In order to get bigger and stronger, you must progressively increase the stress. It’s simple when you lift weights: You just increase the weight as you get stronger.

When it comes to bodyweight exercises, it’s not as simple.

There are different bodyweight exercises for each muscle group. Variations such as a different angle, assistance or single arm/leg exercises change the stress on the muscle. The Bodyweight Mastery Program is designed to take a beginner and progress them through eight levels by preparing the muscles for the next level.

Pay attention to the rep ranges prescribed above. When you start a new level, you’ll reach the lower level of the rep range. However, you should be able to get to the top level of the rep range within three to four weeks of consistent work. Push yourself hard every workout and don’t let your mind get in the way of you finishing the set.

Once you reach the top level of the rep range in each exercise, you’re ready to progress to the next level. If you want to include some free weights, the Bodyweight Mastery Program also includes hybrid workouts where you mix bodyweight exercises and free weights. You can move onto the hybrid workouts after you finish all eight levels.

In order to perform some exercises, you’re going to need a few simple pieces of equipment. You can find these in most commercial gyms. However, if you are working out at home, you’re going to need a pullup bar and dip station at the very minimum.


You have probably heard the phrase “you can’t out-train a bad diet.” This is true for both fat loss and muscle gain. Your calories and macronutrients have to be optimal for your goal. If you want to lose fat, you need to be in a calorie deficit. On the other hand, you need to be in a calorie surplus to be able to build muscle.

If your goal is both, make sure you pick up the Bodyweight Mastery Program, which includes a nutrition guide explaining how to set your macro targets and strategies for fat loss and muscle building.
