Drax the Destroyer
Dave Bautista's Chest Workout via M&F. When you're literally shirtless all the time, having an inhuman chest helps!
Performing the move at varying angles will change how the chest develops. Begin in a staggered stance with your body positioned in the middle of a dual cable machine, one weight stack on either side of you. Adjust the handles so they're slightly lower than shoulder-height. Grab the handles so your palms are facing forward and your arms are roughly parallel with the ground. Maintain a slight bend in the elbows.Contract the pecs and push your arms together in front of you, keeping a slight forward lean from waist up. Pause, then slowly return to the starting position. 0
The weighted dip is a compound upper-body pressing exercise and progression of the bodyweight dip that strengthens the chest, shoulders, and triceps. Attach ankle weights. Grab the handles of a dip station and lift yourself until your arms are locked out and your body is straight up and down. Slightly bend your knees. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Use your chest, shoulders, and arms to power out of the bottom position and come to the starting position. 0
The incline dumbbell bench press is an upper-body strengthening exercise that targets the chest, shoulder, and triceps. The inclined position increases the exercise's emphasis on the upper chest and shoulders. Using dumbbells allows for a greater range of motion and can help prevent any strength imbalances on either arm. Set an adjustable bench to an incline of 30-45 degrees. Lie on your back on the bench and hold a pair of dumbbells directly above your shoulders with your arms fully extended. Pull your shoulder blades together, and slightly stick out your chest. Lower both dumbbells to the sides of your chest. Pause, and then press the dumbbells back to the starting position. 0
Complete Hammer strength or machine press then immediately complete pushups.
Use a machine or hammer chest press. Adjust the seat so that the handles are at your nipple level, about mid to lower chest. Be sure to keep your back straight and shoulders braced. 0

TYpes of Training
|Hypertrophy Training with a combo of heavy weights and low weight/high reps
Bautista typically trains 3 days on 1 day off, but did train one day on one day off while prepping for Guardians of the Galaxy. Bautista likes to bike, grapple, and box, but incorporated a lot more weight lifting for the role.
Boutista eats a lot of poultry, fish, and eggs. His diet is primarily high protein and high fat, with a low carb snack at night. He say he changes his diet depending on his role, but whatever he is doing, consistency is key.
