There’s no question that Josh Brolin underwent an intense physical transformation to get absolutely shredded for his role as Cable in Deadpool 2.

But it sounds like not even his impressive training regimen, which Brolin said got him into “the best shape of his life,” could prepare him for the intense action sequences he’d have to do while filming, according to a new interview with Collider.

In the interview, Brolin talked about the physical toll that shooting the recently wrapped Deadpool 2 took on his body: “I got beat to shit on that movie. That’s all I know,” he said. “I had stuntmen throwing me all over the place. I’ve got a shoulder issue, I’ve got a knee issue that I’ve got to deal with now, but we got through it. We got through it. I pushed hard, and I suffered because of it.”

And if the latest Deadpool installment delivers on even half of the action (not to mention R-rated laughs) it brought to the first film, it’ll have all been worth it.
