Rapper and TV host Action Bronson has been making some major changes to his lifestyle while in quarantine. Last month, he told TMZ that since becoming a father, he has been taking his health much more seriously, and that meant committing to exercising and eating differently. "I've been working out like crazy," he said, revealing that he had lost a staggering 50 pounds (22.6kg) already through a combination of healthy eating and cardio.

Bronson, whose job as the host of Viceland's F*ck That's Delicious involves a whole lot of eating, just posted a gym video to Instagram, giving fans an update on his journey — including the fact that he has now lost 65 pounds to date, and is getting a lot more intense in his training, adding more resistance to his workouts.

In the video, Bronson can be seen cranking out the pushup reps (after months of practice on his balcony), as well as putting everything into a core-busting, fat-burning session on the battle ropes.

"I was on a path that leads straight to the graveyard," he wrote in the caption. "Eating for sport took its toll but it's my fault and it's on me to fix me. I owe it to myself and my family. I reached 363 pounds [164kg] and I'm down to 298 [135kg]. Then a good friend got me to the right spot now I'm training hard. This is week one."

Bronson's post was met with overwhelming support in the comments. "Let's go!!!" wrote retired Major League Baseball pitcher CC Sabathia, who has undergone his own fitness transformation this year. "Respect... u got this," said UFC fighter Shane Burgos, while his fellow MMA fighter Ilir Latifi said "Keep it up." "Let's go Bam Bam!!" wrote ESPN's Ariel Helwani.
