Jared Padalecki Bulks Up

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.

UPDATE :: This image is probably a fake! Just a warning. Great manip, tho!

    omg he looks so HOT!!!!!

  • http://justjared Manou

    He looks very good.

  • RaisedEyebrow

    That looks like a fan-made manip. I don’t doubt that Jared IS that buff, especially after seeing him in only a towel in that season two episode of Supernatural, but on that image above the only real thing is his head.

    Yummy!

    i’m 6’5″ i need to get on that workout/diet plan pronto. lol

  • DC

    As much as I want to believe that’s Jared’s amazing body (and he does have an amazing body) it looks like they cut off his head from this pic: http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/516/jaredpadalecki438aia7.jpg
    and pasted it onto someone’s body.

    Good eyes, people. I think it is a fake after all.

  • winchest forever

    That’s a manip! And a very bad one.
    Jared’s real body is so much better as you can see

    That’s fake! That’s not Padalecki’s body at all! I’m a dude and I can tell from the real to the fake! Jared will sue those posers!

  • bdj

    It’s a fake. What gave it away? That sock in his pant.

  • bdj

    It’s a fake. What gave it away? That sock in his pants or was he happy to see the cameraman ?

  • SuperShoper

    Hey Winchest forever,

    I looked at the picture of Jared that you linked to, and the body in this picture is a very good match in both general build and tone. It is at a very different angle, so it looks a bit different, but his real body would look different from that angle too… you need to develop your eye for perspective a bit better. It is a very good manip.

    Hey bab2010,

    Before you sugest that someone be sued; You should try to find out what happened. It is possable that the person who posted this picture as ‘Real’ stole it.

    A lot of people steal people’s manipulations and then try to pass them off as either Real, or as their own art work when the Artist never intended them to be published or to be presented as anything other than a manipulation.

  • scorponok1

    The pic is a manip, not a bad one, but definately a manip. The body belongs to model Michael Lewis who has done layouts for Calvin Klein and Diesel among others.

  • TazGal

    Guys this is where the real image is from. Hot michael Lewis!!

  • Cruvis

    People that is a PERFECT manipulation. And you all should learn more about Adobe Photoshop, you can do awesome things with it.
    If you can afford it…

  • Lady Vaako

    I am the artist you made this manip and I can’t believe that they stole my work, removed my signature from it, and tried to pass it off as the real thing… I guess I should take it as a compliment but I still find it upsetting. I hope they remove it because I certainly don’t want to get into any legal trouble. This image was never intended to be passed off as being real.

    I’d like to thank ‘SuperShoper’ and ‘Cruvis’ for backing me up on this, and to ‘TazGal’ for showing the Michael Lewis picture. And thank you to everyone who complimented my work. It’s really appreciated. :-)
