Scientifically speaking, Harry Shum Jr. is ripped. (Seriously – those abs though!) But the Shadowhunters star wasn't always as muscular and fit as he is now, and he took to Instagram to share what the journey was like for him.
"I got sick of people calling me scrawny when I was growing up so I found some heavy objects and learned how to lift them," Harry posted on Instagram along with new photo shoot pics that showcase his physique. "I'm glad that happened because from then on, I became healthier and stronger both body and mind. Constantly striving to be the best version of myself, damn it."
Thanks @thetylershields for capturing this moment," Harry added, tagging the photographer of these cool black and white pics. "One of the best in the biz. #WorkOutToEat #DontChangeForOtherPeople #ChangeForYourself."
We love that Harry is sharing the motivation he used to kickstart his own workout routine – but also explaining that it's important to want to get fit for yourself and not to look better to other people.
