Truck yeah! Tim McGraw is taking “Country Strong” to new heights, as evidenced by these wild pics of him working out (and looking insanely ripped) at the Hotel Del Coronado near San Diego, Calif., on Wednesday, April 29.
The “Shotgun Rider” singer, 48, was photographed sweating it out with a few pals before his show later that evening. There were lunges involved, plus what looked like burpees or push-ups. At one point, the country superstar even did a handstand.
Unlike his workout buddies, McGraw went shirtless for the afternoon, showing off his eight-pack abs and bulging biceps while sporting just a pair of gray sweat shorts. (Check out those calves, too!)
“I’ll be the first to admit I take it to extremes,” Faith Hill’s hunky hubby told Men’s Health last year of his total body transformation. “I’m not one of those people who can sorta half-ass something.”
McGraw said he was inspired to clean up and get healthy because of his family. After years of hard partying on tour, he got a little tough love from his wife and their three daughters, Gracie, 17, Maggie, 16, and Audrey, 13.
“When your wife tells you it’s gone too far, that’s a big wake-up call. That, and realizing you’re gonna lose everything you have. Not monetarily, not career-wise, but family-wise,” he told Men’s Health.
“It got to the point where my kids were getting older, and it was way past the point that they noticed it,” he added. “And I noticed that they noticed.”
Newly motivated, he stopped drinking and turned to CrossFit to get in shape. “We do a lot of CrossFit working out in the afternoons,” he told Today of his band. “So that’s sort of what our routine is during the day. It keeps us off the bus, and it keeps us out in the fresh air instead of staying in a cave all day long.”
