The actor bulked up recently, right after the first season of Lucifer. “It was during the hiatus before the second season, I was going like six days a week with high-intensity training, and then mixing it up with heavy weightlifting,” said the actor in an interview with Men’s Journal. Why the transformation? Simple. He wanted to know if he could. And that he did. According to the actor, his workout routine consisted of high-intensity interval workouts and superset-dominated lifting and with limited breaks. In order to maintain this, he continues his vigorous workout regimen up to present, training for up to 60-90 minutes, five days a week.
