Queerty is better as a member
Eh. I prefer lanky and emaciated.
How do normal people with full time jobs do it?
Easy to get buff when you aren’t working and can pay a personal trainer for 3 hour daily sessions, have a “life coach,” and a nutritionist and chef.
It is THEIR JOB to look that good.
What’s their secret?
Easy: they can afford personal trainers, personal chefs, personal assistants, and that’s ALL these people DO all day. Their bodies ARE their work.
Actors can afford to concentrate on that for the hours required because they don’t actually have a 9-5 job with a small salary and an exhausted end-of-the-day.
Mangianello is hot skinny or buff.
Congrats to Chaz for slimming down.
That other photo Queerty showed of Taylor Lautner suggests he was cycling (on roids), because he’s back to a much less muscular figure.
Seth Rogen is just not appealing at all. Why does Hollywood keep foisting this thing on us? STOP IT!
Sex makes you fat? Who knew?
I picked up the Men’s Health issue from a few months ago with Mangianello on the cover. He’s stunning, there’s no denying it at all, and, his physique typifies the kind of the bodies straight guys seem to go for – all chest – no back, all arms – no legs. Mangianello has thin legs that are nowhere near as worked as his upper body. I’m surprised the editorial staff at Men’s Health didn’t address this.
Then again, a straight colleague told me flat out, “Legs don’t matter”. Apparently, for most guys, it’s all about the chest and arms.
Genetics help, too. I looked at my father (retired to the recliner for 25 years) and my uncle (ex football player, high school gym teacher and coach), and both had the same barrel shaped body; no matter how many reps I do, no matter how much I diet, I have that barrel shape, too.
I concur with every poster here; if I did not work, if I did not have a house that needed attention when I have free moment, if I could hit a gym 4-5 days a week and hire a personal trainer, I would have a pretty fine body. But for me, the gym is pushing the mower, cleaning the house or shoveling snow.
The best workout and life philosophy advice I ever got is: Change for yourself and not for others.
@avesraggiana, you said it! I sometimes feel as if I am the only gay “leg man” around. Good legs are absolutely the hottest part of a guy’s body for me, and almost everybody neglects them.
By the way, I love all these guys publishing books on their workout programs. In the meantime, back at the ranch, it’s performance enhancing drugs or testosterone “replacement” in a very liberal and loose sense of the word.
@viveutvivas: @avesraggiana: Ugh, I agree. I hate it when guys are top-heavy. Fortunately, at my gym, pretty much all the guys workout their legs (myself included). Then again, most guys that go to my gym are gay, so they know that good legs and ass is desirable.
@QJ201: Well my BF has a rock hard body and in his 40’s he looks better than most guys half his age. The way he does it is perseverance living in the gym and he also works 40 hrs a week. It is possible and he manages to do it.
@TVC 15: Lol. That’s so true. We have to fight for the squat racks at my gym.
I’m pretty sure I could fit into the cast of Spartacus if I had daily sessions with a personal trainer and had a nutritionist and private chef at my disposal. (And if I were about four inches taller.) But just keeping in minimally decent shape isn’t that hard – just use exercise as a procrastination tool to avoid work that’s even more unpleasant. Or date someone who has the drill instructor mentality.
I work out twice a week after work. It’s good to work out when you’re in an office.
I’ll take Jake G in any form, however I think he looked hot when he was less muscular, I guess I’m kinda into those nerdy types, how did that happen?
Loved this post and anything with Jake G in it is worth stopping to read. So fun. Thanks for sharing and posting!
Makes you wonder how many are juicing it up. I’m sure a few of these are.
Human growth hormone.
And steroids don’t exist in Hollywood and how dare you even think it!
nobody respects muscular legs anymore, people call me fat because my calfs and thighs are thick.what they dont realize is that they are solid muscle.( i wear pants all the time, so nobody ever sees the definition just the size.)
they call me fat just because im bigger than them in every way.
i think 6’9″ and 245lbs is perfectly healthy. :)
@AllanM: Real question is why you should actually care what people think about you. Forget them. I’m happy being me. I like my body. Sure, I’m not the skinny type, but I have decent muscular definition and like being a cub. If someone wants to be a skinny twink then all the power to them. If someone wants to fall in love with them gym and be a muscle Adonis, good for them. For me, I like a great deal of different types of guys, and if they like me… good. If they do not, oh freaking well, I like me, its all that matters.
