Cody Simpson may have had a disappointing end to his attempt to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics.

But that hasn’t stopped the pop star-turn-swimmer from keeping in shape. 

On Friday, the 24-year-old was back in the gym on the Gold Coast working hard and training amid Queensland‘s Covid lockdown.

In the clip, he showed off his muscular back as he did pull ups while wearing a waist belt and with a weight plate in between his legs.  

‘They tried to lock us down!’ he penned in the caption. 

He also revealed his a series of spots on his back – likely from undergoing cupping therapy. 

Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine and a detox treatment loved by many Hollywood stars, such as Justin Bieber, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kaley Cuoco and Jesinta Franklin.

The therapy is a form of acupuncture, and is based on the idea that suction from the cups draws the skin up and increases blood circulation and energy around the body.

Typically, a flame is first placed inside a glass or rubber cup, so the heat can create a partial vacuum, before the flame is removed and the cup held to the skin for about three minutes.  

Cody’s training session comes after he narrowly missed out on a place at this year’s Tokyo Olympics last month.

The young star, who made a bold charge at Olympic glory after many years away from the sport, placed last in the men’s 100-metre butterfly final.

After the race at the Australian Swimming Trials, the singer vowed to ‘come back stronger next year’ and his intentions to aim for a place at the 2024 Paris Olympics.

‘What an experience racing at my first Australian Olympic Trials. To make a final was our goal this year and with less than a year of training we did just that,’ he wrote.

‘I’ve come so much further than I expected to this year and to be racing the best in the country already is a privilege.’

He also admitted he didn’t think he’d be ‘remotely competitive until at least next year at the earliest’ and had thereby exceeded his own expectations.

Cody was supported by his model girlfriend Marloe Stevens, after going public with their relationship in January following his relationship with pop singer Miley Cyrus.
