He still looked amazing while doing each exercise.

BTS‘s leader RM, also known by his real name Kim Namjoon, is famous among ARMYs, BTS’s official fandom, for being in killer shape. Despite this, RM remains humble, rarely showing off his body intentionally and insisting he’s not as muscular as he seems.

Before anything, RM warms up with light dynamic stretching, jogging for five minutes on a manual treadmill, and short headstand push-ups.

The actual workout starts by focusing on the back with four sets of pull-ups for eight repetitions each.

3. Push-Up (15×4)

Next were four sets of push-ups for fifteen repetitions each, completing the first section of the workout, which only uses body weight.
