John Krasinski Shows Off New Jacked Look On ‘Men’s Health’ Cover
Hello John Krasinski!
Krasinski has pretty much been known to be the funny guy on the block, not really needing to be in great shape to play prankster Jim Halpert on NBC’s hit comedy, The Office. However, to prep for his new role as an ass-kicking Navy Seal in Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Krasinski upped the ante.
“I gotta be honest: It was brutal at times,” Krasinski told Men’s Health. “We did tons of metabolic work, dragging sleds and all this stuff I’ve seen NFL players do.”
The Office alum had four months to prep for the role. To get the most out of his time, he enlisted trainer Jason Walsh, who owns Rise Movement in West Hollywood. The plan Walsh built for Krasinski is available in the new issue of Men’s Health.
“I think there’s a part of you where you become addicted to it. I love feeling strong. You pick up your daughter with ease while everyone else makes a little grunt when they pick up their kids. I walk with better posture and a little more presence. I was more of a sit-in-the-corner guy. Now I’m a lot less of that,” Krasinski shared with the magazine.
What helps him get motivated? A little Jay Z! Krasinski shared with Men’s Health that his favorite song is “What More Can I Say.”
In a matter of months, Krasinski was able to drop his body fat from 26% to a mere 5%.
