Joe Manganiello Covers 'Muscle & Fitness' July 2011

Joe Manganiello shows off his ripped physique on the cover of Muscle & Fitness‘ July issue.

Here’s what the 34-year-old True Blood hunk had to share with the mag:

On shedding 20 lbs: “I’m 220 lbs., on the nose. Funny thing is, everyone keeps saying, ‘How much weight did you lose? You look so much thinner!’ But all my measurements have gone up. My waist is two inches smaller, but my shoulders, arms, and chest have all gone up. That’s how I know it’s working.”

On the response from female fans: “I had a friend of mine call me and tell me that it was a girl’s birthday in his office, and they got her a cake with my picture on it. A year ago I wasn’t on anybody’s cake. It makes me feel really good, and it makes me want to work even harder from a fitness standpoint.”

Joe’s trainer, Ron Mathews, on his exercise routine: “The pace [of lifting weights] is more important than the weight, but as you get more endurance in that 30- to 40-minute range, you can keep the weight heavier for longer. Increasing that endurance translates into better definition with size.”
