Footy star Tom Burgess has shown off his new, ripped physique - and he credits his body transformation to following the teachings of a 60-year-old Dutch fitness guru.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs prop shed five kilos during the off season by combining a new approach to eating with tactics he learned from Wim Hof, who is known for withstanding cold temperatures.

Burgess, 27, is heading into the season weighing 120kg and has dropped weight at a pace that he feels he can maintain throughout the season.

Rather than turning vegan like his twin brother George, Tom said he wanted to change his physique in a way that made him feel good.

'I've just watched when I am eating my carbs and things like that and it has made a big difference to me. I felt like I had to change things up a bit.'

Burgess said he followed Wim Hof's techniques to achieve his off-season transformation.

The 60-year-old uses unconventional training methods, including exposing his body to freezing-cold conditions.
