Do you remember little Luke from ABC's Modern Family?

For 11 seasons, Nolan Gould portrayed the youngest Dunphy child, and we watched him grow up.

By the end of the series he was a young man, getting into just as many antics as he did as a kid.

But actor Nolan Gould had a lot going on behind the scenes, too. For one thing, Gould graduated high school in a gifted program at the age of 13—almost 9 years ago.

At 22, he's now abs-olutely muscled up.

In order to bulk up, Gould worked with a friend who is a personal trainer.

"I've been working out an hour and a half everyday with my friend Michael who is a personal trainer. We have a really cool socially-distant setup that has allowed me to get fit while also being safe," he said.

"It's been nice. Especially being unemployed in quarantine, having a reason to get up and stay motivated. It's been something that's been very healthy and positive for me in quarantine. It's really changed my outlook."





Gould's one-and-a-half hour routine reportedly consists of an hour of strength training, followed by 30 mins of cardio and core.

He also stressed in order to obtain this, he had to go on a "pretty crazy diet."

"Cutting out alcohol, for me that's actually been very nice. I feel more clear-headed and have been doing as much writing as possible, being in acting class, taking all the steps I can so when the pandemic's over, hopefully I'll be ready to go to work."





Modern Family's final episode aired on April 8 2020, dead smack in the middle of the first major round of shutdowns due to the ongoing pandemic.





Gould said he has a lot of other life goals besides acting.

"A lot of my life goals outside of acting have to do with the outdoors — I know I want to climb big rock walls in Yosemite, and so I want to get fit for that...One of my big life goals is to do the Pacific Crest Trail which is up the coast of America, Mexico to Canada and back."

He also said one day he would like to do his own stunts, and hopefully with this training regimen, Gould will be able to accomplish that.
