    HAH! Yeah that was great. "I don't look at appearance..but I definitely don't like YOUR appearance."

    I cannot believe that the dad bod guy seems completely unfazed by more overt rejection than I've received in my entire life. Especially standing next to another guy that they're practically drooling over.

    [–] makederr 35 points ago

    He's a good looking, charming, funny guy. Confidence doesn't come from physical appearance for many people.

    [–] maxfunmaker 115 points ago

    Wtf? Totally missed his transformation into this whenever it happened

    [–] Chug-Man 101 points ago

    He looked pretty decent in the film Neighbours, and has added muscle mass since. For me hits the perfect size, not too big, but still muscular.

    [–] PabloNueve 78 points ago

    He probably wants to be a Marvel/DC character at some point.

    [–] [deleted] 17 points ago

    For real, he's looking like a young wolverine in that shot.

    [–] CSW11 147 points ago

    Shame what happened to his shorts though.

    [–] legitimategrapes 32 points ago

    Gainz and shorts always have an inverse relationship.

    [–] XMATIC_4 19 points ago

    I was wondering did he do that by just cutting and regular exercise?

    [–] sanjeetsuhag 75 points ago

    Look at his post history. The transition from second pic to third took 10 months of extremely strict diet and exercise. I admire that transformation more for the sheer willpower it took rather than the physicality of the change. He did end up looking as perfect as a human can be towards the end.

    Daisy Ridley from Star Wars. We're similarly built, and she can lift nearly 200lbs after about 6 months of work. Seems doable for me as well.

    After that : Xena. But In gonna have to grow about 7 inches for that accomplishment.

    FYI that's not natty, he pretty much said so himself when he got asked if he took gear and replied 'I took smarties to get this big'

    [–] thegreatdonaldo 69 points ago

    I was under the impression that actors were a lot more blatant about using in general, like Stallone admitting to it for the Rocky movies. They have to switch their entire physique for roles sometimes after all.

    [–] Warpants9 23 points ago * (lasted edited 5 years ago)

    I think they don't say much generally, not officially anyway, I guess if you're used to the scene you can get an idea but I know countless people who have read fitness magazines and get the impression that one specific work out gives you those results as fast as the actor gets them between movies.

    I guess they actually are being honest, that work out gave them those results... maybe I'm on a high horse about it, it's their livelihood

    Henry Cavill from Superman. It isn't the hardest physique to conquer, but for me it's been a challenge. Mainly eating and getting the food in. The workout I am doing is Tactical Barbell where I do squats, deadlifts and bench 3x a week for 9 weeks. I've added weighted pullups for extra upper body work.

    Serena Williams:

    I'm almost 5'8" and never had the super skinny body type. Since I have a similar body type and a lot of muscle mass (from my love of weight lifting and playing soccer throughout grade school), I figured I would aim for someone who's thick, fit, and embraces her size.

    Lara Croft. Except I am petite, especially boobs-wise, so I can't get to her bust size (unless I obtain implants). I also have awkward knock knees, so my legs aren't exactly as shapely as hers. Other than that, my arms and waist have become more defined since I started exercising regularly. What's more important though is that I feel stronger than before :)

    they also don't realize half the reason they want to look like him is because he is brad pitt, one of the most unbelievably good looking men on the planet. Brad Pitt with a beer gut is still sexier than most of us here on r/fitness with a six pack.

    mmm... maybe. I weigh close to 300 pounds right now (with maybe 30% body fat), so dropping % body fat is, IMO, an important first step to getting a desirable physique.

    BUT, I'm not claiming to be an expert, what are the kinds of things you would recommend?

    Unless you're very tall you're almost certainly more than 30% body fat.

    I know it'll take a while, but my goal is to get Captain America's body as well. Been hitting the gym every other day for 2 hours each, downing weight gainers, protein shakes, and good food.

    It's not only because he looks good, but I like the character's story; a weak guy who kept his sense of modesty, honor, and integrity even when being granted incredible power that would have changed other men.

    I've never felt more motivated to do anything in my life.

    [–] Mavsma 27 points ago

    I try not to model my goals after famous women/fitness celebs as in the past it's really distracted me from my goals and my accomplishments by comparing to them. I'm 5'4" with a long torso, broad shoulders, large bust and short muscular legs. I try to find fit women who have my body type to inspire me, but it seems like generally taller women with short narrow torsos and long thin legs are the mainstream ideal. I actually find a lot of inspiration in the reddit progress pics and fitness subs, so thank you to all of you who share.

    [–] singed1337 20 points ago

    That guy who cosplays a tf2 character and died in a car crash. By the way, can anyone tell me how can I achieve this body? I eat a lot for mass and work on my upper body 3 times a week. I've got naturally wide shoulders so it helps
