The newest season of the Bachelor kicked off this week and with it came a whole new batch sexy women pining for the attention of a very eligible single man. The newest bachelor is Sonoma winemaker Ben Flajnik and he was the runner up for last season’s Bachelorette. Ben, like all of the previous Bachelor contestants, has what one might call a nice body. This brings about the question, what do the contestants on these shows do to achieve such nice physiques?
Previous Bachelor contestants like Jake Pavelka, Jason Mesnick, Brad Womack and Kirk DeWindt have shared their workout secrets. Just in time for the New Year we can take a look at the bodies that have stolen hearts and maybe have our men steal a few of their workout tips. Here’s how past contestants have stayed fit:

Jake worked with a trainer to get the best possible workout. He works on mainly isometric or biometric moves. This includes a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, leg lifts, and hurl throws. He also uses medicine balls and does a lot of weighted ab work to build bulk. For his cardio workouts, Jake usually chooses running or football on the beach. Jake was known for his rock hard abs while on the show, so apparently his hard work paid off. In an interview for DietsInReview.com, Jake told us that during his appearance on Dancing With the Stars he was consuming a 3800 calorie diet and still lost 10 pounds.

The disapproval seems mostly focused toward Jason, not Molly, and certainly not Melissa, who handled herself well, especially considering the situation. A break up is always difficult, but I cannot imagine being on national television in that moment. (more…)
