Harry Styles 'bulks up'

Harry Styles is said to be taking his new fitness regime very seriously, opting to take ice baths like professional sportsmen do.
The teenage heartthrob, along with the rest of the band - Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne - is currently on the gruelling Take Me Home Tour.
The five-piece are on a new diet and fitness regime to help them cope with their demanding schedule, and Harry is said to be taking it very seriously.
“Harry is really being put through his paces. He knows the hard work will pay off – and is up for everything that his trainer suggests. The ice baths are not pleasant but it means his strained muscles will recover quicker," a source told British newspaper The Sun.
“It won’t be long before he’s got the body of an athlete.”
Harry is reportedly having two sessions a day with his personal trainer, and sometimes even gets up at 2am to fit in his workouts.
Earlier this month, a source revealed that the group's fitness is one of the management's biggest priorities, which led to them calling in mixed martial arts trainers Mark Jarvis and Jimmy Wallhead.
“It’s important the lads are in the best possible shape for these dates. Bosses don’t want half measures. The boys spend a lot of time travelling and there can be a tendency to eat junk food and play lots of video games. But, thanks to Mark and Jimmy’s new regime, they’ve been working out lots more," a source told UK publication The Mirror.
“Harry has really bulked up his arms, and Liam has a sturdy set of abs. Niall, Louis and Zayn have been working out with separate trainers and they’re getting into it, too.
“Their trainers have insisted they eat healthier food and it helps that they had healthy catering for the UK leg of their tour. It’s a great starting point for all the hard work they’ll have to put in ahead of their stadium tour next year.”
