Jared Leto Reveals His Exact Workout to Stay Fit in New Video

The star is revealing the impressive exercise routine that keeps him in amazing shape.

There's been speculation for years about what exactly Jared Leto does to look 10—maybe even 20—years younger than his chronological age of 49. Is it the latest cosmetic treatments? A time machine, perhaps?

As it turns out, the star's formula for youthful looks (and good health) are rooted in something more practical: diet and exercise. In a new video, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman shows off the intense workout he does to stay in such great shape. Read on to discover Leto's exact formula for staying fit.

In a video posted to his Instagram on August 18, Leto shows off his incredible upper body and core strength. In the clip, Leto can be seen making his way across a rock climbing wall horizontally using only his hands—and no ropes.

While Leto makes the intense workout look effortless, his face at the end of the clip makes it clear that the exercise routine is no easy feat, even for the ultra-fit star.

He adheres to a mainly vegan diet.

Leto credits his healthy lifestyle, including a primarily vegan diet, with both his health and youthful appearance.

"I'm pretty healthy so I think that helps a lot. I've been that way for a long time—20 solid years of eating vegetarian/vegan and taking care of myself. That probably helps the preservation process," he told British GQ.

However, more recently, he admitted that he sometimes breaks his vegan diet. "I'm actually a cheagan—a cheating vegan," he told Rolling Stone during a 2018 interview. "I don't eat meat ever. But if someone's mom made a cookie and handed it to me, I'd probably take a bite."

While Leto admitted to Rolling Stone that he used to live a wilder lifestyle, he revealed that he's since given up the vast majority of his vices, including drinking.

In the interview, Leto called himself "essentially" straight-edge. "There's all kinds of ways to change your state of mind or to get out of yourself," he explained.

He allows for a few indulgences.

Though Leto may live a health-conscious lifestyle, he still makes room for a few treats, too.

In March 2020, the star revealed his "guilty pleasure" on Instagram, posting a photo of multiple bags of Uncle Eddie's vegan cookies in his kitchen.
