Simon Cowell Shows Off Slim Figure & Has A Workout Session During Barbados Vacation
Even though he is on vacation, Simon Cowell is still making sure he gets some good workouts in. The ‘AGT’ judge was photographed as he lifted some small weights without a shirt on during his Barbados getaway.
Simon Cowell Did A Workout During Relaxing Barbados Vacation
Simon showed off his slim frame in a pair of swim trunks as he lifted the weights to work on his biceps. Back in August, Simon fell off his electric bike in the courtyard of his Malibu home. He underwent a six-hour surgery to have a metal rod placed in his back. After his scary electric bike accident that left him with a broken back, Simon changed up his vegan diet, which initially helped him lose over 50 pounds, to regain some of his strength back.
“He’s gained a bit of weight and is looking healthier” his former girlfriend Sinitta told The Sun. “He said he had to start eating protein, calcium and break his vegan diet to rebuild his strength.” After engaging in intense physical therapy to help him get back up on his feet, Simon looks good as new during this tropical getaway with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, their 6-year-old son Eric Cowell and friends.
“All I do is avoid just red meat – white meat is fine – and I eat loads of vegetables, salads and drink this great beer,” Simon told The Sun before the accident. “If you’re on a diet you have to keep the food sensible, but it’s got to be interesting and tasty, then the diet’s surprisingly easy.” When Simon was in the hospital after surgery, Lauren reportedly brought him all of his favorite foods like turkey and cottage pie. In between his workouts, Simon took a break to smoke a cigarette. The 61-year-old did some more exercises laying on his back and lifting his arms.
Simon Got To Spend Time With His Family
During this vacation, Simon has gotten to spend so much quality time with his family doing fun activities like jet skiing and going out on the yacht. The family recently cooled off in the ocean where Simon once again ditched his shirt. He wore bright orange swim trunks and wore a face mask on his chin amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Barbados has long been a popular vacation destination for Simon who has been looking to buy a property there. Check out the What’s Hot Video below where we talk about the ‘AGT’ judges hunt for the perfect vacation house.
Simon also enjoyed a quick snorkeling session and took some business calls on the day of his workout. The entertainment mogul was initially planning his big television return this January to film ‘BGT’ however, things aren’t going according to plan. Filming for the upcoming 15th season has now been postponed.
“With the announcement of the latest Government health guidelines and with our priority of safeguarding the well-being of everyone involved in our programs we, together with the production teams at Thames and Syco, have taken the decision to move the record and broadcast of the forthcoming series,” ITV said in a statement. So, it looks like Simon has plenty of time to soak up some sun before returning to work on ‘BGT.’
