With meaty roles on gritty shows like Prison Break and Sons of Anarchy, Rockmond Dunbar established himself as a Hollywood badass—and he’s doing it again on Fox’s high-profile 9-1-1, which follows first responders in L.A. Why watch? “There are great people behind it, there’s plenty of drama,” Dunbar says. “And I’m in it. I play Angela Bassett’s husband. What else do you need to know?” Now a family man, Dunbar must work smart to maintain muscle. Here are his secret weapons.
“I listen to guys like Kendrick Lamar when I work out, but when I’m on the elliptical, I watch motivational videos on YouTube. It’s all about positive thinking and pushing out negativity. If you want to be successful, don’t seek success. Wake up every day with a purpose, and be consistent and persistent in pursuit of that purpose. You can take breaks, you can go on sabbatical, but don’t ever give up.”
“The best quick workout you can do to stay in shape is burpees. They’re not fun, and they don’t have to be pretty, but you’ve gotta go all the way down and all the way back up. There’s no better full-body exercise than burpees.”
