Kelvin Fletcher fitness: Strictly star’s tough workout routine to bulk up revealed
Kelvin Fletcher, 35, has swapped the rolling hills of Emmerdale for the shiny dancefloor of Strictly Come Dancing, and the actor is hotly tipped to win the dance competition this year. Many who compete on the show find they lose weight thanks to the intense daily dance practice – but Kelvin was no stranger to exercise before he joined Strictly, and is in great shape. As well as posting details of his workout to Instagram, he also stripped down for ITV show The Full Monty back in 2018. On his social media accounts, the former Emmerdale star has uploaded videos of himself completing intense workouts.
Under one recent workout photo, one fan commented: “If you’ve got it flaunt it, and you definitely have it.”
“What a lovely body!” another praised.
In a string of videos, Kelvin gave a description of workouts he was doing at different sessions with his personal trainer.
In one post, he wrote: “Session one is a lot of accessory work and focuses more on isolation type exercises, my coach has me training in the 65 to 70 per cent intensity range in contrast to some of my other days where I’m training more strength focus type movements in the 80 to 85 per cent intensity range.”
In another post, Kelvin filmed himself doing another routine and let fans know what he was doing.
He wrote: “Session two workout is more strength-focused and mainly composed of compound lifts in contrast to my hypotrophy days.
“I’m working at around 75 to 85 per cent on these days and although I have no specific rep number I have to hit on paper, I do have a specific rep target I’m aiming for on the first set of each exercise.
“If I hit it, I add weight the following week, if I fail to hit it I simply keep the weight the same the following week and aim to come closer or beat it.”
Kelvin is not the only Strictly Come Dancing contestant to overhaul their fitness in recent years.
