Bowflex Guy

I Didn't Get My Abs

From Using That Machine

3/7/2012 4:38 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Despite blasting "diet meals" in the Bowflex commercial, fitness model TJ Hoban tells TMZ -- he got his shredded abs nearly ENTIRELY by eating well ... not from using the Bowflex machine. Shocker.

According to TJ -- who proved his abs were 100% legit last night in Hollywood by lifting up his shirt -- the real secret behind a chiseled stomach isn't busting your ass on some trendy machine ... "It's all about diet man."

It's pretty crazy ... considering TJ squarely bashes diet plans in the Bowflex commercial -- claiming, "no diet plan" can build muscle and burn fat like the Bowflex machine.

We called Bowflex for comment -- no word back yet.



As for TJ's one super secret fat-melting ingredient in his ab-shredding diet plan -- check out the video ...

There's a difference between diet and a diet meal plan. I read the bowflex ad as trashing the likes of weight watchers or jenny craig but his comments to TMZ are about having a good diet which not one fitness person would be against.

I think those abs look ugly--talk about washboard abs--but washboards are ugly.

That's super creepy looking. Do you think maybe used some eye shadow make up on his abs? That's just way strange.

Ten pack abs are gross, they make me think of insects.

Some of the TMZ staff should take fitness and diet tips from him.

(funny how my other comments got deleted because truth hurts?)

The only way you can eat your way to a body like that is if you're drinking HGH juice with your toast in the morning.

It's a bit much for me. Muscle is great, but this looks like an insect.
