Muscular body costume gives men the appearance of looking ripped

People may be feeling daunted about returning to the gym after letting their fitness slide during the Covid-19 lockdown, which saw all gyms forced to close for months.

But a selection of retailers have come up with a hilarious solution for people who want to look ripped without the hassle of months of working out and dieting to achieve their goals.

Chinese online shopping website Taobao is selling Smitzen silicone body suits to give people the appearance of looking shredded without having to leave the couch.

If you would rather walk around with a thick layer of silicone on than head back to the gyms after lockdown, then these body suits could be the perfect solution. 

The muscular costumes are available as upper body, lower body, or full body suits depending on which area of your body you want to show off. 

On Taobao, prices for the muscular body suits range from £87 to £438 depending on the size and type of frame required. 

Meanwhile, online retailer AliExpress is charging a staggering £337 for an upper body Smitzen muscle suit, to give men the appearance of having perfectly toned abs.

Photographs show a man wearing the Smitzen muscle suit, appearing to boast a toned physique and six-pack due to the thick layer of medical-grade silicone. 

The body suits feature additional realistic elements, including arm veins and chiselled collarbones, which is bound to leave people impressed by your ripped physique.

But the quick-and-easy cheat method definitely does not come cheap as a seller on eBay also sell 'realistic' Dokier silicone chest suits for £199. 

Gyms and sports facilities reopened across England on April 12 after three months of closure amid lockdown, but people are still unable to exercise indoors with people outside of their household.
