Benedict Cumberbatch! He is great in Sherlock, and one time he held a baby, and everyone is excited for Star Trek 2: Into Raincoats. Isn’t that right, Cumberbitches? But while all of that stuff is well and good, what is the FIRST thing you think of when you think of Benedict Cumberbatch? That’s right: physical fitness. Is Benedict Cumberbatch a chiseled God forged in the fires of Mount Ripped? MAYBE! And now, this Muscle Legend has finally revealed how you, TOO, can have CumberbABS. From the DailyMail UK:

So how does he keep his ripped abs in such perfect shape? ‘With Sherlock, it’s lots of seeds, juices, swimming and running,’ says Cumberbatch. However, when filming the forthcoming Star Trek sequel in Hollywood (he plays a baddie), he had a personal trainer.

TRY THIS: The abdominal hold — sit on the edge of a dining chair and place your hands on the edge, on the outside of your thighs, fingers pointing forward towards your knees. Tighten abdominal muscles, put weight on hands and lift feet off the ground. Hold position for 5-10 seconds or as long as you can. Repeat for 60 seconds in total.

“Try this.” Hahhahahahhaha. “Try this.” CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WASHBOARD STOMACH. It’s crazy how working out for just 60 seconds will have all of your friends and also strangers on the street saying, “Oh my God, do you know who your stomach looks like?” And you will say, “I get this a lot.” And they will say, “WHAT IS YOUR AND ALSO HIS SECRET?!” And you will smile and nod and keep on walking because you’re going to be late to the Sex Party.
