Lance Bass Reveals His Diet and Workout Routine


After NSync disbanded in 2002, Lance Bass started a production firm. He named it Bacon and Eggs, and that’s where Bass’s problem might have started. “I love food,” he says. “And  I love food so much that it’s kind of tough for me to concentrate on lengthy workouts,” he adds.

So, People magazine requested Michael Alexander, the celebrity trainer to get the former NSync lead into the figure. Thus, if you’re also looking for some motivation, here is how everything went down.

Lance Bass’s 5-Week Body Makeover

We’ve all been very delighted seeing the pretty transformation of Lance Bass’s body weight. Therefore, let’s just take a look at his 5-week workout and diet regimen.

Week 1: The Warm-Up

Weighing 178 pounds and having 19 percent body fat, the 5’10” man is clearly overweight. Bass hasn’t been putting much emphasis on his fitness lately. He says, “I’m from the South, where everything gets fried.” “Fried chicken and country-fried steak are two of my favorite foods.” Therefore, one can clearly see where his negligence to exercise is coming from.

However, now he wants to be cut up and trimmed down for TV. He now wants to make fitness feel like a part of his life and not a duty. Thus, enter Jessica Simpson’s personal trainer, Mike Alexander, who put her through her paces for The Dukes of Hazzard.

He sets Bass on 50-minute cardio and strength-training workouts four times a week at Sports Club/ L.A. in Beverly Hills.

Week 2: The Progress

Bass is getting better. Alexander remarks, “He has good coordination, speed, and genes.” “It’s not so much about losing weight as it is about gaining muscle and being lean.” He also receives Sunfare’s Zone program on a daily basis.

Further, he reveals his diet precisely. The three meals and two snacks (2,000 calories), including a cheddar bacon breakfast wrap. Chicken parmesan for lunch, and mustard-glazed fish for supper. This is what Bass’s usual diet looks like, about which he remarks, “Some of the best stuff I’ve ever eaten.”

Week 3: The Workout

He describes his cardio routine as “boring.” However, he says, “It’s a good thing the gym has TVs.” “I’m trying to keep up on all of my judging shows.”  On the other hand, he enjoys strength work. He says, “I witnessed my abs form up fast, therefore I want to do better.”

Week 4: The Patience-Check Round

Bass credits his discipline to his friends. “They yell at me if they spot me eating something I’m not supposed to,” he claims. “And I’m a timid man, but it’s wonderful when people recognize you’ve been trying so hard.”

Week 5: The Delightful Results

Bass has shed 8 pounds and 6% body fat. “I perceive a significant difference,” he says. “I didn’t have any abs before; now I have an eight-pack! I’d never had a chest before, but now I do. I know I sound like a commercial, but getting in shape has completely transformed my life.”

How He Made It?

For all those who want to know the secret of Bass’s successful weight loss, here are the points to take in:


Bass ran on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes three times a week, even though he didn’t really like it. “That got his heart rate up,” Alexander recalls.

Strength Training

Bass worked on the front muscles on Mondays and Thursdays, and the back muscles on Tuesdays and Fridays.

He’d do three sets of 15 crunches on an exercise ball. Three sets of 12 chest presses with 40-pound dumbbells were in his schedule. Additionally, he’d do reverse lunges with 20-pound dumbbells and squats on his back with a 155-pound barbell.
