Teen star Paul Salas achieved his six-pack abs in just four months.


Paul Salas, 18, is now a hunk with six-pack abs.

We got too busy with so many things that we didn't get to notice that all child stars have grown up.

Have you seen his Instagram feed?

Well, he's been posting selfies of his well-toned torso and abs (when we counted, it was actually eight).

November of 2015, the Paul we spoke to at the PEPtalk Studio looked like this.

In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Paul said he was initially motivated by the thought of being healthy and fit.

He didn't think of veer away from his "tween" image.

He recalled, "Gusto ko lang kasi magpa-fit lang talaga sa katawan ko and mahilig naman talaga ako sa mga sports. Hindi ko rin naman talaga naisip iyan.

"Actually, sinabi lang sa akin ng mga friends ko, ng pamilya ko na, 'Post mo na lang para may makita na silang ibang Paul. Hindi lang yung pa-cute-cute na child actor.'"

Paul is the son of Jim Salas, a member of the defunct 90's dance group UMD or Universal Motion Dancers.

Back to Paul, "Sabi ko, 'Sige, bahala kayo pag nagka-hater ako, sabihin feeling ako, ganun. 

"At least okay naman ngayon, natutuwa sila sa nagagawa kong progress."

The 18-year-old actor said he achieved his ripped body through diet and gym workouts. 

He also trained for boxing with the help of his coach, professional boxer Joshro Lindon.

Paul told PEP, "Ayun nasobrahan sa diet 'tapos nag-dyi-gym palagi. Habang walang ginagawa, di ba, ina-ano ko yung oras ko sa gym.

"Ayun, pag-gym-gym lang palagi 'tapos ayun, after three months, four months, tiyaga lang talaga."
