Joe Manganiello Gives Inside Look to His Shirtless Workout!

Joe Manganiello Gives Inside Look to His Shirtless Workout!

Joe Manganiello shows off those signature eight back abs while going shirtless for the cover of Muscle & Fitness‘ January 2014 issue.

Here is what the 36-year-old True Blood actor and “Evolution” author had to share with the mag:

On being focused on his body as an actor: “There’s the triangle – the mind, body, and spirit. And all too often I see actors really work the mental and spiritual side but not put anything into the physical side, they just kind of ignore it. I don’t come from that school. I come at it in ancient Greek sense, in that their culture was built on athletics and on philosophers.”

On his mentality in the gym: “My training is obviously about weightlifting and building muscle, but it’s also about remaining athletic. It’s about building the body, but it’s also about teaching your body to adjust to its own weight, especially as you get bigger. And it’s practical. I come from Pittsburgh, and the people in the gym in Pittsburgh aren’t working out to look good because they’ve got a shoot coming up. They’re working out because they want to be stronger, because it helps them in life.”

  • jenna

    OMGGGG he’s so hotttt. Hello dream come true. By far the best body EVER!

  • 234443

    Ehhhh, too much. Doesn’t do it for me

  • Cari

    Jared posts this, but posts nothing on the Walking with the Wounded trip across the Antarctica with Prince Harry, Alexander Skarsgard and Dominic West? That takes a level of fitness most people never reach!

  • Ha

    His body’s insane. He looks like a character from a comics book or something, which is amazing. However, that makes him seem like the kind of guy who spends his life at the gym. The superficial type….. which is not attractive. He’s obviously very handsome but way too much into his own physique.

  • Dasha

    Ewwww unattractive beast.

  • VeryVery

    Woooooopa ! That’s a MAN !

  • Rocky

    Amazing body, but wish he’d get rid of the facial hair on face. Not attractive at all.

  • Sassypants

    He’s gorgeous but his ego ruins it, also while I like him with facial hair best the lack of any body hair is gross.

  • Pleshette, S

    Just Jared : More Joe Manganiello and less Leonardo DiCaprio
    and less Brad Pitt, please !

  • Violeta

    @Ha: I also agree he is immersed too much on his physique and for sure he look slike the superficial type but we cant deny that is one HOT RIPPED CHISSLED ATTRACTIVE BODY . That is not too much muscles, there are guys with even more muscles than him. And guys who look like beasts and monsters for me that is not attractive. Joe is ok the way he is now.

  • Violeta

    And yes yes Joe cut that facial hair and cut ur head hair as well for God sake!!!! And yes his ego must be super super inflated

  • Imby

    eeww…big body, scrawny chicken legs. and all those bulging tendons and veins are a turnoff.

  • Willa

    @Imby:

    OHHH..I disagree! His legs are VERY sexy! They are like runners legs. He definitely works them out. I love the way his muscles are naturally built unlike a lot of builders who are sooo big they can hardly move.
