Television host Kim Atienza once again rocked the online world after posting a throwback photo of him when he was still a body builder.
KAMI learned that the famous weather anchor used to “pump iron” during the ‘80s to try to resemble the physique of some of his idols such as Arnold Shwarznnegger.
This became the reason why in his newly-uploaded throwback photo, the muscles of Kuya Kim were really evident.
He was also striking a pose with several individuals since they joined a body building competition called “Super Body of the Philippines.”
“I was so passionate about bodybuilding in the 80s. I admired the physiques of Arnold Shwarznnegger and Lou Ferrigno and would spend hours in the gym pumping iron,” he wrote.
“The norm then was to be as massive as possible kahit mukha na akong palaka,” he added.
Because of the post, a lot of netizens could not help but react upon seeing how Kuya Kim's body was many years ago.
Here are their comments:
“You look good in this picture!”

“Astig, kuya Kim! I remember u even had a segment on fitness in the past early morning show of ABS-CBN.”
“Seeing you now, talagang masaya ako na naging mas health conscious ka. Nakaka inspire!”
