He has admitted that in order to stay in shape at home he is using some bodyweight exercises, such as push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups, and also skipping rope. He focuses on ab work and also on his core training. He also likes to use a jump rope.

The good thing about these exercises is that you can do them while watching TV.


This is one of the exercises that he likes the most, especially outdoors. He prefers running on trailsbecause he gains coordination and balance, since no two steps are alike.

He doesn’t run for distance, but for mid-options, such as a peak or the end of the beach. This way there is something physical showing him that he is halfway there.


He has decided to practice yoga after seeing his mother struggle with back pain and also after being faced with his own inflexibility. Although at first he wasn’t thrilled by the activity, he wanted to achieve everything that the other yoga practitioners were capable of.


In case he has to prepare for a shirtless scene, he follows the Paleolithic diet. This is also known as the cavemen diet or the hunter-gatherer diet. The main focus of the diet is on the wild plants and animals that the ancient humans were said to have been consuming during the Paleolithic period.

The modern version of the diet is made of meat, vegetables, fish, fruit, nuts and roots. This means that there is no grain, dairy product, legume, salt, processed oil and refined sugar in the diet.

According to Ryan there is need to keep the diet for 2-3 days before the filming because the diet is low in carbohydrates and it helps him burn fat very fast.

Besides this, he says that he doesn’t have any other strict diet anymore and he doesn’t mind having a beer sometimes.
