With more and more people hitting the gym to look their best for a hot waxy summer, Meloni’s property has been the subject of not only awe but also envy.
Meloni’s muscular shower was not created overnight – in 2014, the actor was crowned “The best ass in prime time”.
To maintain a muscular physique, he uses a squat rack and a lot of weight in the gym, according to his Instagram account. His recent post showed him doing cutouts, but he clearly doesn’t skip the day.
Meloni, who recently turned 60, is showing no signs of slowing down – to the delight of fans – and has joined the party on Twitter.

How to get more defined derriere
For those trying to make up for getting a nice butt, it can take time.
You can build a bigger, stronger butt with exercises that target the back chain, including the tendons, gluteus and back, formerly known trainer Gunnar Peterson told Insider.
Kettlebell swings, gluten-free bridges and weighted squats can help shape your buttocks, said Peterson, whose clients are Jennifer Lopez, Kardashians and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
- To perform a swing in a kettlebell, start with a barbell on the ground between your feet and a hinge on your hips to bend over and grab. Keep tension in the marrow, back and arms, but don’t pull. Using the force of your legs, swing the weight explosively forward and to approximately eye level, squeezing your buttocks at the top. Let it rotate between your legs as you return to your original position and repeat.
- To perform the gluteus bridge, lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the ground about six inches from your buttocks. Press your upper back and heels into the ground to lift your buttocks off the ground, keeping your hips in a straight and straight line from your knees to your shoulders. Lower and repeat.
- Perform a weighted squat, you can hold the weight either directly in front of your chest (cup in a squat), or resting on the front or back of your shoulders. With the width of the hips at the feet and parallel to each other, bend the knees, keeping the core firm and the chest upright. As you lower your body, focusing on pushing your hips back and knees until your knees reach an angle of 90 degrees or less. Stop and repeat.
Building muscle anywhere on your body also takes energy, so you need to eat to boost gains, experts say.
“You need excess calories,” Peterson said. “Make sure you get enough protein, quality carbs and healthy fats.”
The exact amount of extra calories you will need may vary, but research suggests that a good place to start is about 300 to 500 calories more than you normally need to spend the day.
