Playing a police officer has become second nature for actor Kevin Alejandro. As far as casting directors are concerned, the guy just looks like a cop. But for his most recent role as as Detective Daniel Espinoza on the FOX series Lucifer —a fantasy police procedural centered around the comic book character created by Neil Gaiman—he took it to the next level. During his break from the show following the first season, Alejandro teamed up with his personal trainer Paolo Mascitti, adding pounds of muscle to his frame with an intense summer workout program. The producers of the show, which is in its third season and likely set for a fourth-season renewal, were so impressed that they incorporated his fitness transformation into the series. His inspiration to hit the gym so hard? Sometimes Alejandro would start with a high-rep, medium-weight movement like a biceps curl , jump directly into 15 burpees, and then immediately start another lift—then jump onto the treadmill for a two-minute sprint. Those routines are probably my love-to-hate exercise kind of thing—but they really worked. To maintain all the progress he made over that first summer, Alejandro still heads to the gym five days per week for 60—90 minutes depending upon his schedule. For as much as hitting the gym helped his transformation, the actor said nutrition played a crucial role, too.
