Cole Sprouse Turns To 'Riverdale' Co-Star KJ Apa For Fitness Inspiration

We’d have to use so many hands to count how many times we’ve seen KJ Apa working out on social media, and while at first it put off his co-stars, Cole Sprouse actually turns to him for some fitness tips.

“It’s good being on a show with people like KJ who are monsters,” Cole shared with People mag. “He’s ripped, he’s been ripped since he was like 10.”

He adds, “It’s nice going to the gym with dudes like that because I just mimic what they are doing and by proxy I get an exercise I never thought I would be able to get, which is one of the perks of being on a teen drama.”

Cole also spoke about what his workout actually looks like in the gym and how he prepares for certain scenes.

“I focus on different parts of the body on different days,” he says. “It’s usually high intensity circuits and a lot of body weight stuff. I’m not looking to put on too much weight through weight training, so it kind of depends on the scene.”

Cole continues, “If we have a prospect of a shirtless scene coming up, I usually go a little harder in the four weeks prior than otherwise, but yeah, it’s important to stay physically fit.”

Riverdale airs Wednesdays @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
