Give Me Body: Top 5 Fitness Tips From Underwear Models


We spend a lot of time daydreaming about underwear models–mindlessly scrolling through the separate Tumblr account we have exclusively dedicated to tracking ripped, beautiful men in their skivvies. After wiping the drool from our chins, we often wonder how on earth they do it.

Is it possible that we, too, might someday look as ridiculously perfect in our man-panties? Probably not, but it’s fun to try. Or at least, it’s fun to trance out looking at pictures of models working out in their underwear.

Our friends at The Underwear Expert asked some of these dudes how they achieve their chiseled physiques. Check out the top five fitness tips below.

5. According to Jeremy Brink, it all starts with the right attitude:

“Best advice I could give in terms of working out: Always bring the highest intensity to the gym. If you don’t, there’s really no point in being there and doing a half-assed workout. Go home and come back when you’re ready to bring it.”



4. Mike Stalker is all about his weekly weights.

“In the weight room, I basically follow a body-building type program, which focuses on one muscle group a day, and I lift for about 1 1/2 hours 5-6 days a week. I also try to do ab workouts about 3 times a week. An example of my week would look like: Monday- Chest, Tuesday- Back, Wednesday- Shoulders, Thursday- Legs, and Friday- arms. Then, on either Saturday or Sunday, I will focus solely on some sort of core workout.”



3. Personal trainer/model Go Green swears by decline push-ups:

“Decline push-ups are performed by propping your feet against a wall or on top of a bench or chair. The higher your feet are placed, the more severe the decline angle, and the more significant the isolation on specific muscle fibers,” says Green. “Decline push-ups incorporate the muscle fibers in the upper portion of the pectoralis major muscle, which means more bang for your push-up buck.”

2. Davey Wavey gets inspiration from our Commander in Chief:

“Did you know that Barack Obama spends one hour a day exercising? If the leader of the free world has time to hit the gym, then so do you. It’s not a matter of not having enough time to exercise.”



1. Julian Gabriel on the importance of striking the right balance:

“I used to use a lot of weights and I was always trying to get bigger,” explains Gabriel. “As soon as I entered the modeling world, they were like ‘yeah, everything’s great but you need to tone that down.’ So my current gym regimen is pretty much cardio-cardio-cardio and abs-abs-abs. I look at the weights from afar and say, “hi,” but then I keep walking the other way.”

      So, this article is basically saying that people whose bodies ARE their living, have the hours necessary (and the age, and genetics) to devote to keeping those bodies in the sort of shape they need?

      None of these tips really mean squat. They’re all about as obvious as “tips on how to lose weight: stop eating only junk food”.

      Why do we keep reinforcing this idea that only these “perfect” bodies are worth anyone’s attention? Why do we create an environment where we feel inadequate and inferiour?

      I have a bit of time every day to spend doing some exercise. I’ll NEVER look like these guys do. But then, I could be any one of them’s father.

      I also spend up to 12 hours a day at my work. I’ve made my peace with it. My work is far more important to me than satisfying an unhealthy social vanity that emphasizes the most superficial aspects of men.

      Colour me unimpressed.

      @MikeE: To be fair, this site just advertised for new writing blood, while allowing someone called “THE UNDERWEAR EXPERT” posts an article that looks like yet another press release by some rubbish magazine they’re trying to get invites to do a guest column in.

      It’s really mostly genetics. I am lucky to be able to maintain this kind of body from the neck down without too much effort (I have to struggle to *not* lose weight), but my hair is all falling out. God divides :)

      Julian Gabriel still looks good with this strictly cardio only. But nothing can compare how amazing and hot he looked when he was did hardcore weight training! Too bad he looks like every other model now.

      @TinoTurner: hear, hear! Also someone should remind him that as a smoker, Obama is hardly a healthy lifestyle role model.

      What did Davey Douchey do to his face? Chin implant? Cheekbone implants? Lots of botox? His face looks very narrow and oddly smooth. Oh, and this advice is foolishness, but I expect this from this blog.

      “…Always bring the highest intensity to the gym. If you don’t, there’s really no point in being there and doing a half-assed workout. Go home and come back when you’re ready to bring it.”

      Brilliant! So if you’ve had a hard day, and aren’t in the best of moods, forget a workout! Go home and sit on the couch. That’s about the stupidest advice when it comes to exercise I’ve ever heard.

      Get yourself to do a workout DESPITE how you feel. A “half-assed” workout is better than no workout.

      @Rafael: When it comes to working out you need to bring intensity. Effing at least break a sweat. If you’re too tired get on one of the cardio machines so you’ll be forced to sweat.

      @Pete: Can’t stand this Davey fool. Obama quit smoking, but this article is ridiculous. Real Men do not spend their lives in a gym and DO NOT look like this GQ ad.

      @JDJase: wow and you people think you are worthy of equal marriage? please. your relationships don’t even last as long as a fruit fly’s. no wonder gay people hate each other so much! first you do nothing but slobber all over underage straight boys you’d have to pay to get, then you turn around and scratch each other’s eyes out because deep down you hate the fact that the only available choices among gay men are basically the opposite of those you’re jerking off at online! gay marriage – yea – you guys can’t even find a gay date.

      I came along at the time of Olivia Newton-John, the hit Physical and Super 8 and VHS porn. Looking back it seems like overnight porn and underwear transitioned itself from the skinny peroxide blond kid from the midwest turning tricks in a sleezy motel on Santa Monica or Sunset blvd to muscle Mary’s coming out of the gym. As soon as the first sign of a bicep showed up on the arms of several friends my large-boned, pot gut ass became cause for “I’ll call you later, I’m going for my workout” when I would see them on the street.
      I am so glad I did not get caught up in the must-have-a-Perry Ellis-track suit (general retail even in the mid-80′s was $150 plus) and constantly standing in front of the mirror monitoring my abs and hoping I didn’t look a day over twenty-five in the mid-90′s and early 2k like many of them did. I laugh when I seem them posing in underwear looking like lost middle-aged men on those online dating sites that I look at for fun.
      Oh, the joy of youth. I smile (but not long enough for them to catch me) at the twinks who are in the gym these days looking for some older person to take care of them and their meth habits they think are I am not a bitter queen at all. As I said, I had my day and now watch these lonely kids have theirs. I just hope they realize no matter how round that bubble back there gets that golden colored stain in the seat of those cute boy panties they pay as much as $35 per pair to wear is not gold. But hey, who am I to tell a god what to think?

      Number 1 and 2 are actually really shitty advice. #2 confirms one of the many reasons why I hate Daveywavey, it’s such a stupid and simple way to look at the issue. NO ONE should only do cardio and abs, that doesn’t build a balanced body, that isn’t a proper routine. He looks good with this because 1) Cameras/air brushing, lord knows what other effects, and 2) He had lifted before, which gave him that good body.

      As for Davey Wavey’s advice, yes, most people should exercise. Barack Obama has a hard job, but surprisingly (sarcasm), more luxury than most people have! It’s not a big deal for him to get an hour of exercise a day, it’s surprisingly quite easy. As opposed to someone of the working class, or someone teetering on unemployment, etc. Somehow, he fails to realize circumstances of life?

      4 is a bit flawed, since a noob to working out shouldn’t be doing split days. For someone who’s in an advanced program, it would be fine, aside from the core specific workouts. If he’s doing real exercises, squats, push ups, pull ups, OHP, deadlifts, etc, he’s hitting his core plenty, and there’s no need for core specific workouts.

      3 and 5 are the only legit advice.

      All in all, this has proven to me that indeed most models are idiots. I’m out *back to physics problems.
