Armie Hammer Workout And Diet
Armand Hammer was born in LA. His family moved to Dallas, Texas when he was a young child, and then to the Cayman Islands for 5 years starting in 1993 before returning to LA when Hammer was 13. He made his stage debut when he was in 6th grade in Annie, and he left school in 11th grade to pursue a career in acting. Hammer found small roles at first before being cast as Billy Graham in Billy: The Early Years in 2008. His breakthrough came 2 years later with The Social Network. Other film credits include J. Edgar and Mirror Mirror, but he is perhaps best known for playing in 2015’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Hammer was married to actress Elizabeth Chambers from 2010-2020 and they have 2 children. He has millions of followers on social media. Hammer is 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs about 205 lbs.
Armie Hammer’s Diet
Hammer’s diet can be summed up pretty easily: carnivorous. He eats a lot of meat, and is not opposed to having it raw. He eats his greens too, like asparagus, particularly when it’s wrapped in bacon. Ironically, Hammer’s wife runs BIRD bakery, so presumably he eats the occasional cookie. He has also been spotted eating pizza with arugula on top.
All Protein, All the Time
Hammer pounds the protein morning, noon, and night. He says if red meat causes disease, he should be dead.
Hammer’s idea of a balanced diet includes wrapping bacon around asparagus spears.
Anything for a Role
While prepping for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Hammer was prescribed a diet of chicken, eggs, and caviar by director Guy Ritchie, Madonna’s then-husband. This odd diet apparently gave Hammer a killer case of gas.
Besides the bakery, Hammer’s former wife Elizabeth Chambers also set records for Girl Scout cookie sales, moving over 1,200 boxes in a single selling season. Gotta believe Hammer ate at least a couple of thin mints.

Armie Hammer’s Workout Routine
For The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Hammer got in killer shape by doing lots of fight training and jujitsu.
Hammer’s Man from U.N.C.L.E. trainer was Jordan Feramisco, who works with many pro athletes and celebrities such as Mickey Rourke, Marilyn Manson, and many pro sports teams like the Golden State Warriors.
Secret Agent Workout
Hammer worked on building his strength so he would look realistic when he fought as a KGB spy.

Armie Hammer’s Supplements
Hammer likes to season his meat and fish with the superfood ginger, which is chock-full of antioxidants that zap cancer-causing free radicals. Ginger improves digestion, quells nausea, reduces inflammation, and can help with weight loss. If you aren’t crazy about the spicy flavor, you can still get its many benefits by taking it in supplement form.
Hammer also digs garlic which offers about as many health benefits as ginger. Garlic boosts immunity, reduces blood pressure and cholesterol, and also has antioxidants that may help you live longer.
Hammer’s diet is meat-heavy, making a greens supplement a smart idea.
He does eat his greens, but if you don’t get as many as you should, adding fiber can help things move through the system. Probiotics are also a good choice to get the most from what you eat.

What’s in a Name?
Hammer’s great-great grandfather is credited with founding the American Communist Party. He named his son ‘Armand’ because an arm and a hammer are the symbol of the communist party.
It All Works Out in the End
When Hammer dropped out of high school to go into acting, his family disowned him, but they later reconciled and supported his choice — and encouraged him to take some classes at UCLA.
