If you’re as sad as we are that we won’t be seeing James Maslow shirtless every week on TV anymore, fear not, Team Jeta and Rushers: Our favorite ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ hunk is showing off his killer abs on the cover of Fitness Rx For Men magazine, and we think he’s looking hotter (and more buff) than ever before.

In another photo for the mag, Maslow shows off his impressive, toned physique as he hangs from a metal bar right off the beach, sun glistening on his tanned abs as palm trees sway gently in the breeze. Wherever this is (California, most likely) we need to be there. Now.

But the Big Time Rush hottie did more than just look smoldering in the mag … he also revealed why he loves to work out so much — and ladies, ohmygod.

“You’re working out so girls look at you,” Maslow told the magazine (quotes via PEOPLE.) “You want them to look at you and go, ‘I want to talk to that guy.'”

But his buff bod is giving him more than just a platform to talk to women — it’s also providing him with the ammunition to transition from teen star to a more mature performer.

“People are starting to look at me like a young man, and I love that I can use my physicality to separate myself from the roles that I used to get [from] the roles that I’m going to play,” he explained. “When I started on Nickelodeon, I was a teenager and looked very different. I’m still young. I embrace that and have a hell of a lot of fun, but those aren’t the roles that I’m playing anymore.”
