    Ryan Reynolds has always been a fun-loving, good-looking guy. But if you compare his early days in Hollywood to his more recent outing as everyone's favorite foulmouthed superhero, you might notice that he hasn't always had the beefed-up physique that looks so good in red spandex. How did this former child actor turn his body from lean to mean? Be warned: there aren't any tricks — just time, energy, and dedication...

    Ryan Reynolds has been ripped for years. He got beefed up for Blade and then for the amityville horror which was just pure gratuitous and then just kept it.

                          I’m in college so I have the time to do the workouts, but not the money to afford a trainer, nutritionist, or all the healthy food (salads are expensive)

                                  Working out 7 days a week only works for people who are on steroids. Anyone else would lose muscle because their bodies would not be able to recover enough to build muscle.

                                    It sucks that all these people on roids hide it and normal people believe its natural

                                    That many workouts a week for that amount of hours requires STEROIDS so that your muscles can recover enough to keep building and not fatigue/damage..   You can't gain masses if you don't have sufficient down time for repair and growth and this is a FACT..  6 Days a week is not possible and have those kind of gains.. If you do not give your body the much-needed rest after a long series of intense workouts, then your body will not produce the lean muscle mass you want. It will actually do the opposite by burning off muscle. This is called muscle glycogen depletion. STEROIDS mitigate this..  ALSO, Steriods are known to be used in Hollywood for these kind of quick gains.  FACTS

                                    You underestimate the 2000000 million years of evolution that went into creating Homo Sapiens.
                                    Working out 7 days a week is possible with smart training and will definitely FORCE your body to adapt and get bigger.
                                    As long as you don't injure yourself, then all good.

Bunch of flabby assholes who act like they have a doctorate in steroid use when someone with a completely obtainable physique appears. Look at Reynolds and look at Dwayne Johnson and tell me which one is most likely on steroids
