In September, Chris Daughtry turned heads when he Tweeted a shirtless photo of himself after a 23 lb. weight loss. Since releasing the photo, Daughtry has kept the pounds off – and even built more muscle, thanks partially to the large home gym on his 45-acre estate in rural North Carolina where he works out "almost every day."
But what happens when he goes on the road?
As the rocker and his band embark on a co-headling tour with 3 Doors Down this month, Daughtry, 32, knows the risks.

Hottie with the body!
Rocker Chris Daughtry has been hitting the gym – and has some major muscles to show for it.
Earlier this week, the rocker Tweeted a shirtless photo of himself, writing, "Just left the gym! After 5 yrs of neglect, I'm PUMPED to see AB's again! Hard work and commitment is paying off!"
Detailing his fitness and health regimen, Daughtry, 32, also Tweeted, "Since the Lifehouse tour in 2010, I've lost 23 pounds, but some of that was muscle. I had to refocus my food intake and mix up my routines."

It's double trouble for Chris Daughtry.
The rocker and wife Deanna welcomed fraternal twins on Wednesday morning, Nov. 17, he announced via his Web site.
Daughter Adalynn Rose arrived at 11:06 a.m. weighing 6 lbs, 5 oz., while son Noah James followed at 11:25 a.m. weighing in at 5 lbs, 5 oz.
"Our family is overwhelmed with joy by these two precious gifts from God," Daughtry, 30, said. "The babies are both healthy and resting. Thanks to everyone for their love and prayers."

Chris Daughtry and his wife, Deanna, are expecting twins via surrogate, the rocker announced on his Web site Monday.
"Deanna and I are overjoyed about this double blessing," Daughtry, 30, said in the statement. "Thank you for your expressions of love and support and for respecting for our privacy during this special time."
The babies, who are due in in November, were conceived via IVF and – due to Deanna's partial hysterectomy four years ago – were transferred to a gestational surrogate who will carry them to term.
The American Idol alum and his wife are already parents to son Griffin and daughter Hannah.

Country will get a little bit rock and roll with the addition of Daughtry to the roster of performers for the 43rd annual Country Music Association Awards, the CMA tells PEOPLE.

Guys, listen up. One of music's hardest working rockers may have the solution to a happy home ... even while away from home for months at a time.
"Honestly, I think the biggest thing is to do what we say we are going to do," Chris Daughtry tells PEOPLE. "When we say we are not going out partying, don't let them find out that you were out partying. We don't party. We hang out ... We're not out hanging out with random girls and all this stuff. We entertain each other and keep each other in check."
Daughtry, 29, caught up with PEOPLE on the set of his band's new music video, "Life After You" from Leave This Town, about how he keeps his wife of nearly nine years, Deanna, and two kids, Hannah, 13, and Griffin, 11, not missing dad ... much.
Be Generous: "My wife, if she wants it, she will just go out and buy it," Daughtry says. "I have learned that – I have been married almost nine years now – and if she wants something she will definitely [get it]. The last thing I bought her was a really awesome diamond ring that should probably keep me out of trouble for the rest of my life."
