HOLLYWOOD actor Dax Shepard has been working on his physique since the coronavirus quarantine was set in place.
The star revealed his bulking regimen to Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis during an episode of his podcast, Armchair Expert.
Does Dax Shepard take testosterone?
Dax Shepard dished that he has been working on bodybuilding since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
The 46-year-old explained that a combination of workouts, protein shakes, and testosterone injections helped him go from 185 pounds to 210.
He also revealed that his father was low in testosterone, which seemingly prompted his use.
“I think taking yourself to your 28-year-old testosterone level is fine,” Shepard explained.
“But the point is, forget the body; 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 I enjoy,” he said.
What did Dax Shepard say about working out?
Shepard got complimented by Ashton Kutcher during the episode of his podcast, who was shocked to see how buffed the actor looked.
Kutcher said: “Can I comment on the size of your biceps right now, Dax?
“I feel like you should run a measurement of the size of your bicep and start dropping a weekly measurement into the Discord channel.
“It’s unbelievable! You’re getting Joe Rogan arms in there. It’s phenomenal! I mean, you look like He Man right now.”
Shepard then explained that he and wife Kristen Bell decided to work on their fitness during the pandemic after he joked about not receiving a call from Marvel to be cast as a superhero.
“In quarantine I said to Kristen, 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,” said the actor.
“I’m 46, they’re not gonna call. So I just have to do it for my own amusement, and I gained about 24 pounds.”
News of Shepard’s health and fitness journey comes after he relapsed on Vicodin after 16 years of sobriety.
What did Kristen Bell say about quarantine with Dax Shepard?
Since the pandemic started, Bell told to People magazine that watching Shepard home school their two girls has made her “fall much deeper in love with him.”
She admitted the beginning of the quarantine was hard on the family, saying: “We’re getting along good with the kids and we’re getting along good with adults we’re friends with… This has been stressful for mom and dad.”
She then quipped: “We’ve been at each other’s throats real bad, real bad, oh yeah.”
The pair sat next to each other in the video which Dax pointed out was “as physically close as we’ve been in a couple of days.”
He then joked: “America’s sweetheart has some character defects… just want to let you know.”
