Outlander star Sam Heughan has shared his “simple” workout routine that he follows in order to maintain his impressive physique.
Sam, who plays Jamie Fraser in the award-winning show, has revealed that he uses training as both an opportunity to spend time outdoors in Scotland and as a way to instrument his charitable acts.
The Scots-born actor regularly works out for his fitness programme My Peak Challenge, a global movement founded by the star which educates and inspires members to live healthier lifestyles whilst raising funds for charity.
Through challenging its members, the organisation has raised over £4.5million for charities including hunger relief, blood cancer research, end-of-life care, and environmental protection efforts.
Sam shared his sweaty workout routines with Men’s Health, showing fans how he maintains those bulging muscles.

His workouts range from strength training and fight work for Outlander and other projects like Bloodshot and SAS: Red Notice to endurance training outdoors, like hiking and road races.
