Usher Dishes In On Fitness Routine To Men’s Health Mag

usher men's healthThe talented and now muscular singer Usher is on the cover of Men’s Health Mag.

Usher is getting fit for his upcoming film Hands of Stone where he portrays boxer Sugar Ray Leonard.

He dishes to the mag talking about his fitness routine and how he stays in shape, saying:

“I train like an athlete every day, believe it or not.”

Since taking on the role, Usher has been shedding weight to get from 180 pounds down to Leonard’s 146 pounds.

His second day of training he even rode his bike to and from the gym, which is 10 miles from his home in Atlanta. Talk about serious dedication!

But Usher understands as much as fitness is important, so is taking a break. He says:

Sugar Ray Robinson said the most potent weapon in boxing is rest. Now I realize you can’t push yourself all the way. You have to pull back a little bit.”

Can’t wait to see that great bod on the silver screen. Great job on the determination for the role, Usher!
