Last March, Kevin McHale — the American actor and singer who famously portrayed Artie Abrams, a student with disabilities, in the Fox musical dramedy series Glee — hinted that he might be gay, something he later confirmed. But unbeknownst to us, he has also recently come out as having gotten in serious shape. And if you want a Kevin McHale body, he even reveals how he got his.
The secret to getting a Kevin McHale body
In an interview with the entertainment TV show, Extra, McHale says, “I’ve never had abs before. I have abs all of a sudden.” Opening his eyes wide, he says, “My friends are like, ‘What’s happened to you?!?’”
McHale says that he simply goes to the gym three times a week, trains hard and eats healthily. But the truth is that he’s been participating in his Los Angeles gym’s individualized 12-week fitness program that includes intensive workouts and a strict diet.
Nick Mitchell, the CEO of Ultimate Performance Gym (where McHale works out), says, “Diet is the most important thing if you’re trying to improve your body composition. There’s no secret for diet. The challenge is the execution.”
He says, “If you can kill it, pick it or pluck it. If it’s out of a cardboard box, you avoid it.”
