Dax Shepard Reveals How Much Weight He Gained to Get Ripped in Quarantine

Dax Shepard is buff, and he’s revealing how he did it!

During a recent episode of his Armchair Expert podcast, the 46-year-old actor explained the process behind getting ripped in quarantine to guests Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.

“Can I comment on the size of your biceps right now, Dax? You’re getting Joe Rogan arms in there. It’s phenomenal! I mean, you look like He-Man right now,” Ashton said.

“In quarantine, I said to [wife] Kristen [Bell], I’ve been waiting for 10 years for Marvel to call so that I’d have an excuse to get huge. And they’re not gonna call. That ship sailed. I’m 46, they’re not gonna call. So I just have to do it for my own amusement,” he said.

“I gained about 24 pounds, just six days a week, just lifting heavy [weights], protein shakes, going bananas, heavy testosterone injections,” he explained, with Ashton and Mila warning him about the dangers of testosterone injections.

“Mentally I love it because it makes me far more on fire to be alive. I was depressed after CHIPS. I was literally retiring, that was the plan, I’m out… This is the version [of me] I enjoy,” Dax said.

“I’m 185 on the button, baby, I’m always 185 and now I’m 210. I spent my whole life as a medium boy, and now I’m a big boy and I like it.”

He also just celebrated his wife’s birthday with a loving tribute.
