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 ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge was photographed as he lifted some small weights shirtless during his Barbados getaway. This year, Cowell has undergone multiple surgeries following an electric bike accident, so it’s good to see him healthy once again.
Simon Cowell Works Out During Barbados Vacation
Cowell showed off his slim frame in a pair of swim trunks as he lifted the weights to work on his biceps. Back in August, Cowell 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 the accident left him with a broken back, Cowell changed up his vegan diet, which initially helped him lose over 50 pounds, to regain some of his strength.

“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, Cowell looks good as new during this tropical getaway with 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,” Cowell 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 Cowell was in the hospital after surgery, Silverman reportedly brought him all of his favorite foods like turkey and cottage pie. In between his workouts, Cowell took a break to smoke a cigarette. The 61-year-old did some more exercises laying on his back and lifting his arms.
