Justin Timberlake has always been in great shape. Now he might not be the most muscular man in the world, but he definitely displays a lean and well proportioned physique.
In his most recent movie, Friends With Benefits, Justin displayed his body quite proudly. If you’re not the type of guy who wants to look like a big bulky bodybuilder, then this is a great physique to strive for.
Justin Timberlake workout
To get a body like Justin, your workouts would need to be focused a lot more on increasing the size of your muscles in your upper body.
For upper body
To help carve out your muscles, you can follow any program you want, but I recommend you to include the following 2 exercises.
1) Incline dumbbell press
I’m not a huge fan of the traditional barbell bench press, particularly because it makes my chest look like a pair of women’s breasts. And no one wants that, right?
The bench press puts too much emphasis on the lower chest which gives it a somewhat “breast like” shape. However, if you focus on incline movements, you will be able to focus mainly on your upper pecs, which is a region most guys lack in.
This will give a very masculine look like Justin Timberlake.
2) Wide grip cable row
A very under appreciated exercise, the wide grip cable row is a great exercise for widening the back to give you that V taper that women love.
The key to this exercise is to pull back as far as you can so that you are able to fully contract your back muscles.
The 3 day workout plan(done on alternating days)
- Parallel grip chin ups: 3 sets X 8
- Wide grip cable row: 3 sets X 8
- Incline Dumbbell press: 3 sets X 6
- Standing military press: 3 sets X 8
- Dumbbell side lateral raise: 3 sets X 13 reps
- Lying leg raises: 3 sets X 20 reps
But what about legs!!
For legs, I want you to do absolutely no weight lfiting exercises.
That means you shouldn’t be performing heavy movements like back squats and deadlifts. Now I realize that saying you should skip those exercises is highly controversial since they are recommended by pretty much everyone else, but hear me out.
When you perform squats or deadlifts, they tend to build up your legs and butt a bit TOO much. I’m not saying this is bad since having strong legs is a good thing, but they are unnecessary to do if you want a body like Justin’s.
Instead of doing heavy direct leg movements to train your lower body, I recommend doing HIIT(high intensity interval training) to train your lower body.
A sample HIIT routine would look something like this. You can do this routine 3x per week.
- Get on a treadmill and perform a light walk for 5 minutes
- Increase the intensity until your are sprinting at full speed for 30 seconds
- Decrease the intensity until you are walking again for 90 seconds
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 six times
- Finish off with a cooldown by walking for 5 minutes
Don’t be a meathead!!
I’m going to tell you a secret that you may or may not know – WOMEN LOVE JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE.
Now why is this? It could be fame, the millions of dollars, or it could be the fact that he has an attractive looking physique. If you want to go out and become an overly muscular bodybuilder, then be my guest. But let me just warn you that doing this won’t get you attractive women.
Women simply don’t like guys that have too much muscle. It’s the truth. For a complete program to look like Justin Timberlake and to get a lean Hollywood body, I recommend Visual Impact Muscle Building For Men.
