Hugh Jackman is preparing to suit up yet again as the character alternately known as Logan in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2,” but the actor told Access Hollywood that getting back in mutant shape comes at a price!

“I’ve just started [training]” the actor told Access at the 9th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s “An Enduring Vision” event in New York City on Monday night.

“I’ll be the one with four chicken breasts on my plate,” Hugh joked, referring to the strict diet he’s on in order to get Wolvie-ripped.

“It’s hard training and a lot of eating. It sounds gluttonous, but it’s really not. It’s just kind of hard,” he continued. “Four chicken breasts at 10:30 in the morning with brown rice and steamed broccoli is not a lot of fun, let me tell you.”

A release date for the “Wolverine” sequel has yet to be announced.
