During the filming, Reeves had dislocated his shoulder when his chariot slammed into a tree [1] [2] ; he re-injured it while swimming in a subsequent underwater escape scene.

The injury would be aggravated by his stunt work in each successive film, ultimately leading to his retirement from filmmaking. Reeves followed this with The Giant of Marathon where he was cast as Pheidippides , the famous wartime messenger of the Battle of Marathon. By now Reeves' success was such that his films would use Hollywood directors: Marathon was directed by Mario Bava and Jacques Tourneur.

Universe' is a powerwalker now: Toronto Star18 Jan Retrieved May 27, Films of the Golden Age. Put down the tortilla chips, and try these five high-intensity training strategies to torch fat fast.

Men and women who did hours of cardio over the course of a year lost an average of only five pounds. Interval training -- bouts of high-intensity exercise alternated with short rest periods -- not only burns more calories than traditional cardio training, but also boosts your body's ability to fry fat through hormone production. Not only are interval workouts shorter than traditional cardio training, but they also make you fitter in fewer sessions, he adds.

Steady-state works by increasing the oxygen delivery to your heart and lungs. Intervals, however, work on your muscles, helping them use oxygen more efficiently so your heart doesn't have to pump as much to make them perform.

Jump on a stationary bike or onto a treadmill, and start your own interval training regimen with this guide from Ballantyne:. Start with a regular warmup. When you've finished that, pedal or run at a rate that's 20 percent harder than your normal cardio intensity. After 30 to 60 seconds, bring the intensity down to a rate that's half the intensity of a normal cardio workout. You want two extremes: Alternate periods of 30 to 60 seconds of hard work with 30 to 60 seconds of easy pedaling or easy running for six to 10 intervals to complete your session.

As this gets easier, increase the intensity of each interval, work longer during the hard portion, shorten your rest periods or add more intervals. If you haven't sprinted since a coach was blasting a whistle in your ear, you're missing out on a natural but extreme form of interval training that can pay dividends for more than just your legs. They have tremendous arms and shoulders, too," said Nick Tumminello, director of Performance University.

A quick caveat, though: If you're not used to bursts like these, Tumminello says, it's easy to pull a hamstring, halting your training -- and your results. He suggests following these tips to start safely. Sprint on a hill. The impact on your joints is lower, Tumminello says, which can help you avoid injury. Live in a flat area with no hills? Instead of the drag race approach, begin your sprints by speeding up from a jog. At a local track, jog the curve, then sprint 10 to 20 yards of the straightaway.

Continue interval sprinting in this way. To maximize benefit and lower injury risk, keep your sprints on the shorter side -- no more than 50 yards per sprint. This will help you maintain a high intensity throughout, says Tumminello, and prevent your form from breaking down, which can lead to injury.

To increase the overall results of your sprint workout, increase the number of sprints instead of going for long distances. When you're starting out, perform a sprint workout just once per week -- you'll be surprised at how sore the workout makes you, even in the abdominals.

Once you're used to the stimulus, Tumminello suggests bumping it up to only two sessions per week, mixed with other gym workouts. Allow at least two days of recovery between sprint workouts.

You don't have to run, bike or perform any traditional cardio exercise to get high-intensity, fat-burning training. By pairing strength exercises that work opposing muscles, you can build muscle while keeping your heart rate high, maximizing fat loss.

During the lunges, the arms and back rest, while the legs rest during the pull-ups. Jack uses such exercise pairings to do escalating density training, an interval protocol with a built-in challenge. To try this challenge: Choose two exercises that use opposite movements or work completely different muscles -- pair a pushing exercise with a pulling exercise or a lower body move with an upper body move.

As an example, consider a dumbbell bench press and an inverted row. For each exercise, choose a weight with which you can perform 10 reps. Alternate between the exercises, performing just five reps of each move, with the rep weight, in each set.

Rest as needed between sets and pairs so that you can complete each set of five without failing. As with cardio intervals, strength intervals like these won't work if your reps aren't high-intensity. Continue alternating between the exercises for a set time -- 10 or 15 minutes, for example -- keeping track of how many total sets you can do. In following sessions, try to beat your score by finishing more sets in that time or by finishing the same number of sets but with tougher weights.

Density training sessions are great to add to the end of a traditional strength training workout, Jack says. For a complete density training workout, he suggests performing multiple time blocks in the same session, using new exercise pairings for each.

Other pairs he recommends include a goblet squat with a single-arm dumbbell row, a reverse lunge with pushups or pulldowns, deadlifts with dumbbell overhead presses or split squats with a rowing exercise.

Countdown workouts also use exercise pairs and are a motivating way to finish a workout, says Mike Wunsch, performance director at Results Fitness in Santa Clarita, California.

With each round of the exercise pair, the workout involves one fewer rep of each move -- moving from sets of six to five to four, and so forth, until the count reaches zero.
