Duncan Uses Farmyard Work-out To Shed 90 Pounds

Hollywood hulk MICHAEL CLARKE DUNCAN lost 90 pounds (40.8 kilograms) after adopting a farm-style work-out regime he created for himself. THE GREEN MILE star, 49, weighed in at 360 pounds (163.2 kilograms) a year ago (05) when he decided it was time to tone down, so he bought himself a tractor tyre and a sledgehammer. The actor ran with the 100 pound (45.3 kilograms) tyre strapped to his waist and used the sledgehammer to work his love handles. He says, "I looked like I was nine months pregnant. It wasn't cute at all... I want females to see me as a sex symbol." Now weighing in at a slimmer 270 pounds (122.4 kilograms), the actor has achieved both his goal - he feels great and he recently earned a top 10 spot in urban magazine Heart + Soul's Beautiful People poll.
