13 Extreme Celebrity Fitness Transformations

These stars bulked and cut (and bulked again) for the sake of their craft or their overall health.

What He Did: Whipped himself into shape, piling on muscle and losing fat. Why He Did It: For his role as Templeton 'Faceman' Peck in The A-Team. What He Ate: Cooper nixed all sugar, salt and flour and eliminated sandwiches, although he jokes that he got around that by taking grapes and putting an almond in between. His diet allowed him to sculpt a tight midsection and eliminate stubborn fat. His Workout: He spent two hours a day in the gym with a personal trainer doing lots of strength and core training. He used the ‘3-2-1 Method’—that’s three cardio circuits, two strength training circuits and one core workout, each for 10 minutes. Also: speed-hiking up a famous trail in Vancouver that locals call "The Grind." Plus: To boost his weight loss, Cooper gave up booze to cut calories and feel more energized for his ass-kicking workouts early in the morning. Bradley Says: “It was the worst but I would still make sandwiches. I would like cut a grape in half—this is so depressing—and I would put an almond inside, you know, to make a little sandwich. It was my big treat.” Difficulty Level: 6
