Cristiano Ronaldo loses his crown as Man Utd’s king of the gym with Casemiro lifting bigger weights ‘with his eyes shut

CASEMIRO has dethroned Cristiano Ronaldo as Manchester United’s “King of the Gym”.

Both icons have been getting more bench practice than they hoped this season.

Cristiano Ronaldo sticks to a careful fitness regime, including gym work, but his legendary abilities at leg-press have been usurped
Man Utd’s Brazil midfielder Casemiro has proved a surprise package in the gym as he’s been labelled as ‘strong as an ox’

But they played the whole of Sunday’s 1-0 Premier League win at home to West Ham – showing their strict regime is worth the weight.

It’s claimed Casemiro can leg-press 300kg “with his eyes shut” whereas Ron is known to push 30 reps of 250kg.

Brazil midfield hardman Casemiro, 30, and Portugal all-time great Ronaldo, 37, are weeks away from possibly their last World Cup.

And whatever happens on the pitch, it’s certain they’ll go to Qatar honed and toned to perfection.

But Ron reportedly needs to “up his game” as Casemiro’s power has wowed United team-mates since his summer arrival from Real Madrid.

That’s despite five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo being more muscle-bound and an inch taller than the £60million anchorman.

A source told the Daily Star: “Ronny takes a lot of pride in his fitness and how muscular his legs are.

“Few get consistently near the amount and weight he can load up. 


“He’s not one for bench pressing – Ronny is a legs man.

“But it seems he may have met his match with Casemiro.

“He’s not the biggest guy in the world but he’s as strong as an ox and can push 300kg with his eyes shut.”

Old Trafford stars Ronaldo and Casemiro can leg-press 550kg between them
