Who better to help Michael Jackson "hulk" up for tour than the original Hulk himself?

Lou Ferrigno's wife Carla has confirmed to PEOPLE that the star of the 1970's TV hit The Incredible Hulk has been working as Michael Jackson's physical trainer in preparation for Jackson’s return to live performing in July. "Lou and Michael have known each other for a long time," says Carla. "Lou first trained Michael 15-years ago."

Jackson's exact workout regimen remains secret, but Ferrigno, a two-time Mr. Universe, has added muscle to other celebrity clients such as Mickey Rourke and Chuck Norris.
