Justin Bieber isn’t afraid of giving another guy props when it comes to their fitness game. After Drake posted a jaw-dropping shirtless photo, JB couldn’t help but tell him how good he looked — and now we know why he complimented our Champagne Papi’s hot bod!
What makes a sizzling half-naked Drake, 28, selfie even sexier? Our other favorite hottie, Justin Bieber, 21, commenting on it, duh! The pop star complimented the “Best I Ever Had” rapper’s ripped torso on Instagram with a very flattering message. Now, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why the Biebs had no problem expressing his sheer admiration for Drake’s shredded bod!
“Justin isn’t afraid to give credit to guys with great bodies,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Which is why the Canada-native had no reservations about leaving this comment on Drake’s ab-tastic June 3 upload: “damn daddy.” So. Bromantic!
“[Justin] admires guys that train hard and get ripped because he knows it’s not easy. He’s super proud of his six pack but he wants to put on even more muscle,” the source continues. “He’s been training incredibly hard and it shows. He’s already made gains since he shot the Calvin Klein campaign and he’ll be getting even more ripped.”
But can he become as built as Drizzy? Well, that’s the idea! “The plan is to take his body over the top, to Olympic athlete level,” adds the insider. “Justin has amazing will power, whatever he puts his mind he does so no doubt it will happen!”
While he has aspirational fitness goals, Justin candidly admits that he’s able to stay in shape regardless of his fast-food cravings. “I do eat unhealthy sometimes — I’m a 20-year-old guy! I’m not on a special diet.” the “Where Are U Now” singer told Us Weekly of getting his body in check for those mouth-watering CK ads. Ugh, #jealous!
Even though JB might not always say no to McDonald’s, he definitely gives it his all when he hits up the gym. “I work out with my trainer, Patrick Nilsson, five days a week for about 45 minutes each,” he also told the mag of his workout regimen. “We do three day splits: back and triceps one day, chest and biceps on day two, shoulder and legs on day three, and abs every other day.” Sounds like Justin is on the fast track to getting that Drake bod of his dreams!
