Usher is displaying his amazing abs in the latest issue of Men’s Health Magazine. In preparation for his new movie where he takes on the role as iconic boxer Sugar Ray Leonard (Hands of Stone), the 34-year-old father has hit the gym hardcore. During his interview, he explained one of the biggest lessons he learned about getting in shape, by Leonard:
Mentally, I’m the type of person who can ignore the pain. Put it somewhere else and allow my body to just go there. But I always suffer. You can’t box, ride a bike for 20 miles in the heat—Georgia heat—and then go to the studio and rehearse. That’s not happening. 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.
P.S. Looks like we weren’t the only ones impressed by his physique. His ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, shares the same sentiments LOL.
