He wasn't that ripped in X1, and he still looked great.
It's almost like he's setting the bar so high, he himself may fail to reach it.
He was cast when X1 had already started filming, so he didn't have time. Singer mentioned on the commentary track for X1 that they shot the cage match scene towards the end of filming, just to give Hugh more time to bulk up for it. He started doing the crazy workouts for X2, and he's 13 years older it's just a lot more work.

I'm sure he's got plenty of trainers and whoever else around to make sure he doesn't push it.

Would you like to take it out and ask it?
