The Workout 'Euphoria' Star Javon 'Wanna' Walton Uses to Shine Onscreen

The standout actor and boxer shared his challenging at-home workout.

Javon "Wanna" Walton is a young actor and amateur boxer brimming with potential. Just check out his Instagram for some of his intense training sessions and fights.

But he's much more notable for his work outside the ring. You may recognize Walton, now 15, from his roles as a precocious actor on Amazon's Utopia and HBO’s Euphoria. When he's not working on his acting chops, he's in his home gym training for his next bout. Last year, he recently shared his entire workout with Men's Health.

"It's very important to push yourself as hard as you can during training if you want to get better," says Walton. "Don't just go through the motions."

The Warmup

Assault Bike Interval Training
8 rounds (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off)

Walton starts his workout by warming up on an Air Assault Bike, going as hard as he can for 20 seconds then "cruising" during 10 seconds of rest.

The Workout

5 Rounds each (1 minute each)

Walton starts his workout with some bodyweight exercises.

1A: Bear Crawls
He notes that these are good for your full body.

1B: Handstand Walks
Walton says he does these because they're good for your core, shoulders and chest. If you have any shoulder issues yourself—or if you haven't mastered a handstand just yet—you should hold off on this exercise.

1C: Plank Jumping Jacks
Walton includes this move because they're good for his muscular endurance and core.

Reaction Bag Training
1 Round (5 minutes)

After wrapping his hands, he hits the bag.

"It is super fun to play around with. It doesn't feel like working out," says Walton.

Heavy Bag Training
6 Rounds (3 minutes each)

"This is where I like to push myself the hardest," says Walton. "It's very important for both boxing and acting because fight scenes in acting can last a very long time, up to hours. So I want to push myself so I can have good endurance


Walton says he doesn't do a lot of weight lifting, but when he does, he keeps it low weight, high rep.

1: Deadlift
3 Sets of 20 reps

2: Squat Thrusts
3 Sets of 20 reps

Jump Rope Cool Down
1 Round, 6 minutes

For his cool down, Walton grabs a jump rope.

"A lot of people use skipping rope as a warmup. I like using it as a cool down. I feel like it's a great time to reflect on what you did good and the things you can improve on," says Walton. "It's almost like a little meditation."
