    They were doing a lot of close ups on him with his shirt off after the match last night, as he tossed sweaty towels to adoring fans.

    His upper body is disproportionate.

    He has a ripped chest but no pectorals to speak of, and no deltoids..those parts of him look like someone who does not lift at all but does endurance exercise.

    He has a thick and ripped core, well developed back, and biceps, which look like someone who works out regularly

    If I were to guess, I would think he does not bench press, no shoulder pressing, and a lot of pull ups/chin ups and some curls, in addition to lots of core training.

    Probably focused on preserving shoulder health/flexibility, while building the pulling muscles and core strength seem evident.

    I bet he does HIIT training, squats, deadlifts, stability ball training, and keeps his carbs low. Probably drinks lots of coconut water and pickle juice.

    Something called "Fuentes Jugo"?

    I think it's called "Gil Juice" in the States.

    There was an interesting comment about him on TV by a commentator. He pointed out Nadal's nutritionist in the box who apparently has a diary in which he plans Nadal's food intake every 24 hours. He then went on to say that the guy controls exactly what goes in and out of Nadal's body.

    How can he control what goes out of Nadal's body?

    Or maybe if he finds something inappropriate coming out of Nadal, he just shoves it back in ;)

    I know... Disgusting... ;)
