Salt Bae’s Bizarre Workout Routine Puts Your Gym Sessions To Shame

There’s a reason he’s the world’s sexiest butcher…

Salt Bae, the internet’s sexiest butcher, is a Turkish chef and restaurateur, who owns Nusr-Et, a chain of steak houses. Some years ago, his meat seasoning technique became a meme, and now his fitted white t-shirt, dark trousers and gold-rimmed sunglasses – along with his sexier-than-thou triceps – are famous worldwide.

What’s less known is how Salt Bae keeps himself in shape: you don’t become hot property by sitting on the couch eating Doritos (trust us, we’ve tried). To that end, we thought we’d compile the best of Salt Bae’s workouts – almost all of which are unusual – to inspire those whose routine consists of an endless cycle of bench press, dips and bicep curls.

The best place to start is triceps – if you want to become a salt sprinkling meme you’ve got to put the hours in. And if you are sick of dips or close-hand bench press, Salt Bae’s rather more gymnastic approach could be a great place to start building those arms.

Next, we recommend taking note of Salt Bae’s endless appetite for the weird and wacky, with his outdoor version of Olympic lifting.
