Pete Davidson Tricked Alec Baldwin Into Losing 100lbs With a Work-Out From a Comic Book

All things considered, Pete Davidson is in pretty good shape, so it’s no surprise Alec Baldwin asked him for diet and exercise tips while he was portraying Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. It’s one thing to imitate Trump, but it’s a whole different story to have Trump’s near-Taftian proportions to go along with it.

Pete told Jimmy Fallon, however, that he doesn’t actually have a workout routine, he just looks like that because of his metabolism. He didn’t want to say that to Baldwin because he rightly assumed he’d sound like a dick, so he made something up that sounded like it would work.

Via Us Magazine:

Davidson came up with a faux gym routine to make the 30 Rock alum, 63, “feel better” about their different body types. “I said, ‘Oh man, I do 100 pushups and 100 situps every day,’” the King of Staten Island star recalled.

“Every time I’d run into him in the hall, he’d be like, ‘100 a day!’” the Set It Up actor said. “And he started to do it and he lost, like, 100 pounds. And he says it’s all because of me.”

Pete may not have been aware, but that’s actually pretty close to another famous workout routine: that of Saitama, the eponymous hero of One Punch Man.

Now the gag here is that Saitama is supernaturally strong, like Superman or Hulk strong, and the only explanation he can give is this routine. Clearly, it gets results, Baldwin lost all that weight and only did half of what is laid out in the comic.
