More like John 'Man'ega, right?

With director Rian Johnson poised to assemble the cast of Star Wars: Episode VIII to start shooting any week now, Boyega has apparently headed to the gym to add some serious bulk for his reprised role as Finn.

Boyega posted the following mid-pull up shot to his Instagram account with the caption: "VIII".

The last we saw of Finn in the closing moments (the 'fin', if you will) of The Force Awakens, he was recovering from a bruising encounter with Kylo Ren. 

What's the best possible explanation for Finn's added muscle for the events of Episode VIII? Let us know.
