When you step into a boxing ring to do a few friendly rounds with a buddy, you probably want to make sure they’re not a real superhero. That’s a lesson actor Oliver Trevena learned this week after a session with his training partner, who just happened to Spider Man star Tom Holland.
“Be extremely careful when training with a friend who is also a Marvel superhero,” Trevena wrote in the caption accompanying an Instagram photo of himself and a shirtless jacked-up Holland. “May cause post-workout collapse.”
It’s not the first time someone has commented on the Spidey star’s skills in the ring. Boxing coach Louis Chandler said the actor “has hands on” last summer when he shared a video showing the Netherlands showing off his skills in a sparring session as he got in superhero form for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
While Holland may have developed some fighting prowess, there are other elements of his MCU fitness routine that he’s less enthusiastic about, such as the electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) training he underwent prior to shooting No way home. It’s a “low-impact, high-intensity” method of supporting strength and muscle growth, and the Netherlands hated it.
“You wear this black suit and they put these pads on you and you basically do a yoga class while they electrocute you. It’s horrible,” Holland explained during a performance on The Graham Norton Show last year. “You really can’t move, it makes every part of your body tremble and it’s awful… It’s a lot of fun and it works, but it’s really the worst thing I’ve ever done.”
It seems with every new solo Spider Man film, Holland is physically put through the wringer. In 2019, he admitted he will never train with his Far from home co-star Jake Gyllenhaal again after a particularly competitive run left him gasping. Although it looks like he learned from that experience and improved his game as he played alongside Mark Wahlberg in the coming not mapped movie.
