Britney Spears‘ boyfriend Sam Asghari is denying taking any short cuts for getting his ripped body, but also admits he is “genetically blessed.”
On his Instagram stories, the fitness model-turned-actor shut down a follower who said he “noticed” Asghari used steroids.
“Can you recommend any?” the person asked. “I’m thinking of taking them too but don’t know much about them yet.”
Asghari, 25, first thanked the follower for the “compliment,” but later explained to the rest of his fans how he is able to maintain a healthy physique.
“I do not take steroids,” he wrote in a separate Instagram story. “I was genetically blessed with a great anatomy that would look or more importantly feel healthy if I applied diet and exercise.”
Asghari said he doesn’t recommend using steroids, and “hardly even” recommends supplements — despite promoting a few brands on his social media profile.
“I live by this rule: you exercise to be healthy, now why would you take [a] substance that gave you terrible side effects,” he said.
Asghari and Spears often post videos of the couple working out together. In May 2018, the pop star shared with The Associated Press how strenuous their workouts really are.
“He’s a trainer so everything has to be so perfect,” she said before joking, “We probably did 40 (takes) and I hurt myself. It looked great, he did a good job.”
In July 2018, Asghari opened up to Men’s Health about how he wasn’t always in great shape, and why he made a serious lifestyle change after battling depression in 2013.
In the profile, the former athlete said he relied on mostly on proteins and vegetables for his diet, and exercised daily, which led him to losing nearly 100 pounds.
After the weight loss, Asghari landed the lead in Spears’ “Slumber Party” video, and the couple began dating shortly after.
