Chris Hemsworth has revealed his noticeable weight loss on the set of upcoming Ron Howard movie In the Heart of the Sea, Digital Spy reported November 20th. The article, “Chris Hemsworth weight loss revealed on set of new Ron Howard film,” noted that the actor, who usually has to bulk up considerably for his role as Thor, wore a blue vest, which revealed his significantly slighter torso, as he posed on the deck of a ship in the photograph. Director Howard shared the image of the 30-year-old Australian actor looking slimmer than usual on his Twitter page, adding the caption: "Gr8 to work w/Chris again- here he is about to rehearse on deck 4 In the Heart of the Sea."

Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine compared weight training to cardio exercise for the best way to lose weight. According to Yourwellness Magazine, "If you’re trying to lose weight, you’ll no doubt be wondering which exercise regime provides the best and fastest results. Is it cardio or weights? Well, the truth is that it’s both. A combination of the two provides you with each set of health and weight loss benefits, which you’ll be missing out on if you limit yourself to just one kind of exercise. Most cardio workouts these days involve some element of weight resistance training, as the results you’ll see are astounding. Likewise, weight training is generally done in circuits which gives you your cardio element." (

Yourwellness Magazine explained that the myth that weights add bulk has been thrown around for years, but there is little truth to it – gaining muscle is hard work and takes a long time to achieve. Yourwellness Magazine pointed out that in the early stages of a new workout, the body produces a hormone known as cortisol which leads exercisers to retain water. People think this is muscle and believe that they are bulking up, but they’re actually just adapting to a new regime. Yourwellness Magazine added that cardio exercise, contrary to popular belief, does build muscle, which aids in weight loss.
