He wasn’t afraid to stic* his gut out to emphasize the ‘before’ part of his physical tr*nsfor*ation. ‘That is so nasty,’ he shouted, !nterr-upting the sh*t.
The clip then cut to quick sh*ts of him lifting weights, all soundtracked with bl*s! electro!ic beats. The footage appeared to have been filmed over several workout session, as Will had on different athletic outfits.
