Whilst Liam discussed in deep detail his own struggles with lockdown and his mental health he focused in his thoughts about losing weight and getting back to his 2019 best.
'I put on so much weight'
Speaking with business man and social media star Steven Barlett Liam admitted:
'I put on so much weight, I was eating badly and describing it as a bulking period — "I’m doing it for a movie role! It’s all good!" That’s the best excuse if anyone asks if you’ve put on weight. Say it’s for a role, coming out 2022.
'I put a lot of weight on. What got me, I did one performance on TV with the BAFTAs and I was disappointed with myself. I didn’t look how I wanted to look.

2018 / 2019 Liam Payne Body
It's clear Liam looks back to his physique as it was in 2019 with a rock hard 6 pack or even 8 pack for motivation in his recent body struggles.
Image above shows the Midlands native on stage in 2018 Australia. Sporting bulging biceps and thicc (sp?) forearms it's clear Liam's diet and exercise, along with his general lifestyle was much healthier than it is now.

Hugo Boss & Liam Payne
It's perhaps easiest when referring to Liam's overall body to look back at his campaign with Hugo Boss.
What a bulge! In late 2019 images were released by Hugo Boss for their Body wear campaign showing Liam Payne's totally ripped half nude body with a massive bulge. Wearing white boxer shorts Liam looked every part the fitness model with his veins on show. This and 2 further images below courtesy of Hugo Boss show the British pop star and father of 1 flexing his own muscles as well as being flanked by a naked Stella Maxwell.
Final image in colour shows white mens underwear.
