We’ve already established that Justin Bieber does, indeed, lift (bro). (His biceps are bigger than my face!) And we’re pretty sure that if we were to prick those rippling pecs with a pin, they would not deflate like a bunch of balloons, “Looney Toons”-style.
Yes, we commend you, Biebs, for your intense dedication to the temple that is your bod, and now we only have one question: How can be more like you? Is musclelyness next to Bieberlyness?
Luckily for us, Bieber has been documenting his burgeoning muscles via Instagram of late, giving us tons of handy tips to work out our quads and squads and pods (these are all medical terms, of course). Check out the seven most vital tips we’ve culled from his snaps below:
1. Do Not Be Scared To Levitate
I know, I know, levitating is way scary (I was terrified to do that “light as a feather, stiff as a board” thing at sleepovers, too), but in order to get a “solid core,” as Biebs says in the caption of this snap, you have to #dontbescared. So, let the wizard that resides in the pocket of your flowered swaggy sweatpants do his thang.
Note: I assume Bieber is levitating via magic here because I don’t understand upper-body strength.
2. Make Sure To Celebrate Success With Your Bros
You’ve successfully pulled yourself out of the gaping maw of nightmares that is your bed! You even put on shorts and sneakers! Time for a celebratory shuffle with the dudes! (Said dudes will also come in handy if you get sleepy and opt to be carried down that hill later — Great Wall of China-style.)
3. If You Don’t Have Weights, Take A Selfie
The selfie-raise, it’s the newest exercise craze! Bieber himself has honed his armucular muscles (that’s the medical term, too, BTW) while also perfecting the perfect self-snap-pout. Lifehack!
4. Make Sure To Use All Parts Of Your Body While Workin’ It
Here, Bieber is sticking out his tongue — Miley Cyrus-style — which creates aerodynamic tongue-i-cular drag (another med term!) that adds even more resistance to his workout.
5. Make Sure To Have A Good Workout Face
No one will know you’re working hard unless you look like you’re working hard. As Bieber says in the caption of this snap: “#idontcaretobestrong #justwannalookstrong #trickem.” You fooled us, Da Biebz! Ha ha!
6. Always Work Out Via Montage
You should probably also pump some inspirational jams to make said montage look even more inspiring.
7. Don’t Forget To Accessorize
Beauty is not skin-deep — it’s also about the things you put on top of that skin. Like headbands and wristbands and whatnot, ya know? Swag?
