How to Gain Muscle in GTA San Andreas

In San Andreas, the amount of muscle CJ has directly affects the amount of damage he deals in hand-to-hand combat, while also affecting both his sex appeal and respect stats. In GTA San Andreas, players can increase muscle by performing various activities, such as exercising at gyms, swimming, running, and riding a bicycle. To recap, here are the best ways to gain muscle in GTA San Andreas:

  • Exercising at gyms
  • Swimming
  • Running
  • Riding a bike

At 50% muscle gained, CJ’s looks will change. It is good to point out that having too much muscle will also negatively affect some of CJ’s stats, mainly his sex appeal. With that said, you can increase both muscle and lung capacity at the same time by swimming.

How to Lose Muscle

Even if having muscles is a good thing, CJ can lose them just as easily by not consuming food, which will decrease his overall body fat. If CJ has 0% body fat he will begin to lose muscle when hungry. It’s good to point out that, if CJ doesn’t have any muscle or fat to lose, he will start to lose HP until he eventually dies.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is available for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A version of the compilation for iOS and Android will be released in early 2022.
