Nothing exudes raw, testosterone-fueled physicality quite like a good action flick. While the towering, larger-than-life muscularity of the 80′s may be a thing of the past, the genre continues to produce some tremendous physical specimens. If watching these unforgettable action roles doesn’t make you want to pump some serious iron then maybe you should stick to romantic comedies.
10. Steeve Reeves – Hercules (1957)
Reeves was the original movie muscleman. After winning a Mr. America title in 1947, Reeves took his herculean (pun intended!) physique to Europe where his success in the “Sword and Sandal” genre made him both a household name and the highest paid actor on the continent.
9. Linda Hamilton – Terminator II (1991)
The only woman on our list, Hamilton prepared for the role of Sarah Connor by undergoing a thirteen-week workout regimen in which she trained three hours a day, six days a week. She also underwent military weapons training in order to become a real life machine-killing machine.
