James wrote that he had been training in Muay Thai three days a week prior to when he “hit pause to dance six hours a day.”
“Now I can rhumba,” he added in the 50/50 split photo.
The actor came in fifth place on DWTS – days after he made the tragic announcement that he and his wife Kimberly had suffered a miscarriage while pregnant with their sixth child.
There is no trophy in the world that I wouldn’t have traded to be home with my family.

James was eliminated from the competition two weeks ago.
Later he said that he was happier to be with his wife and kids rather than dancing.
“There is no trophy in the world that I wouldn’t have traded to be home with my family this week 100%,” he added on Monday.
The final was won by ex-Bachelorette star Hannah Brown, who lifted the Mirrorball Trophy with partner Alan Bersten.
FRUIT, VEG, SMOOTHIES & SALADS
James attributed his weight loss success to learning the show’s rigorous dance routines and lengthy rehearsals.
He also claimed that his food intake played a large part in the body transformation.
Replying to a fan, he wrote: “Lot of fruit, vegetables, lot of smoothies, salads.
“I danced early in the day so pretty much ate vegan until dinner.
“Had to keep it light fare because we didn’t really take breaks.

“Not so much of a diet… more like only wanting to eat what I knew would make me feel good under the work load.”
The selfies followed a similar set of shots from May 1, where he showed a fuller figure.
“Just giving up? Or just not giving a f***?” he wrote, along with the hashtags #Dadwear and #IHaveDaughters.
