Matt Damon's 'Jason Bourne' Workout Routine is INTENSE

Matt Damon's Jason Bourne Workout - How Matt Damon worked out for the new 'Jason Bourne' movie.

It has been almost 10 years since Matt Damon appeared in a movie as Jason Bourne, the super spy with very few lines. But, that's about to change with the release of the highly anticipated Jason Bourne movie. And, according to Matt Damon, the movie's director demanded Damon spend hours at the gym. Damon and Greengrass sat down for an in-depth inteverview with The Guardian about their decision to return to the franchise, which both of them had previously said they would never do after the release of 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum. According to the duo, it was Damon and editor Christopher Rouse who convinced Greengrass to add another movie to the franchise, focusing on how much the world has changed in the last decade, particularly in the field of technology and surveillance. But one thing Matt Damon and Greengrass didn't want to change much was Jason Bourne, and that took working out at the gym for several hours. “Paul said early on, ‘Look, if we open the film and in the first frame of Jason Bourne we see your face and you look like you’ve lived well these past 10 years, we do not have a movie,'” Damon explained to The Guardian. “‘You have to look like you’ve suffered. And the only way to do that is to suffer.'” The actor's work out routine included two 90-minute gym sessions per day for 10 weeks, and a strict, diet that included limited Damon’s intake to proteins and vegetables only. “It was a statement of intent,” Greengrass told The Guardian. “Sadly, he had to make it.” I guess Matt Damon focused more on his workout routine than his acting skills because he only has 25 lines in the entire movie.
