Belgian actor and martial arts icon Jean-Claude Van Damme is also known as The Muscles from Brussels—and it isn’t hard to see why. In a recent Instagram post, Van Damme flexed for his 4.7 million followers wearing a muscle-bearing tank.
Just looking at the photo, it's clear that JCVD certainly doesn’t look like many 59 year olds you may know. Namely, he’s positively jacked.
In the black and white photo, Van Damme flexes in the gym, showing off his bulging biceps, defined deltoids and massive pecs. Several fans commented on the post calling Van Damme their "idol" and "inspiration." In fact, the famous athletic actor may just be your gym inspo after seeing this single simple picture.
In Dec. 2017, JCVD shared an overview of his workout routine with Men’s Health, and also discussed how he maintains his physique while ageing.
“I started training when I was very young. I was always into flexibility training, so it made my muscles very elastic,” he told Men’s Health at the time. “Also, I have good genes from my parents, and that DNA is very important. My mother and father’s skin is impeccable.”
Those “elastic muscles” have proven to serve him well throughout the years. So well in fact, that JCVD insisted back in 2017, “I can still do my splits!” And judging by these muscles, he can still do more than that over two years later.
