Prince Harry’s Fitness Routine Exposed

With scandalous naked photos of hunky Prince Harry circulating the web, many are left asking, HOW did Diana’s sweet little boy turn into such a hottie?!

With toned arms and rippling abs, this isn’t your mom’s aristocrat!

So what exactly is his royal highness’ secret to his royal hotness? I mean, what sort of amazing fitness regimen can you do that that achieves such an overall perfection?

Well, for starters,  you can join the Queen’s Army. We can thank the British military for Harry’s 27-pack abs and perfectly toned bum, to borrow an English term. Several years of grueling training has sculpted the Prince’s body into a work of art.

According to the British military’s guidebook for physical training, Harry, a Captain in the Army Air Corps, would be at a Level 4 Fitness routine. That looks something like this:

Day 1
• Steady run for 30-40 minutes
• 2 sets of press-ups, as many as you can do in 45 seconds
• 4 sets of 15 squat thrusts
• 2 sets of sit-ups, as many as you can do in 45sec
• 4 x 15 dorsal raises (Lie face down on the floor with your hands at your temples and your shoulders relaxed. Take a deep breath in, lifting your chest off the floor. Hold briefly, then gently lower to the floor breathing out).
