Jared Padalecki Bulks Up
A shirtless and buffed up Jared Padaleckitells Men’s Health how he bulked up. Find out more about Jared‘s physical transformation:
Jared Padalecki was a skinny kid when he landed a role in Gilmore Girls. Now, at 25, he is the star of his own CW series, Supernatural, and has the body of a leading man. His transformation began after a 4-inch growth spurt, to his currently 6’4”.
“Suddenly I really needed to add muscle mass,” says Jared Padalecki. He packed on 35 pounds of muscle while staying lean.
He credits Scot Mendelson, a two-time world bench-press champion who guides Padalecki through short but intense workouts and encourages him to snack on 600-calorie protein shakes.
Scot Mendelson does not play around and goes old school on guys like Padalecki: Get strong to get big. “The heavier weights you use, the more muscle fibers you’ll activate, leading to greater growth,” he says.
