Joe Manganiello on this month's 'Muscle & Fitness'

Here’s what the 34-year-old True Blood hunk had to share with the mag:

On shedding 20 lbs: “I’m 220 lbs., on the nose. Funny thing is, everyone keeps saying, ‘How much weight did you lose? You look so much thinner!’ But all my measurements have gone up. My waist is two inches smaller, but my shoulders, arms, and chest have all gone up. That’s how I know it’s working.”

Joe’s trainer, Ron Mathews, on his exercise routine: “The pace [of lifting weights] is more important than the weight, but as you get more endurance in that 30- to 40-minute range, you can keep the weight heavier for longer. Increasing that endurance translates into better definition with size.”
