LL Cool J Workout Plan The Hollywood Star Uses to Stay in Shape Year Round

Whether it’s the music industry or the entertainment industry, James Todd Smith, more commonly known as LL Cool J, has one of the best bodies out there.  In fact, LL Cool J is so obsessed with working out that wrote his own book called LL Cool J’s Platinum Workout.

In the book he mentions the importance of nutrition and workouts.  (It is extremely tough and not for the faint hearted) and how LL Cool J Supplements are a big factor in his fitness life. He’s is a dedicated, hardcore, devoted guy, and to keep his sculpted body, he needs a mindset just like that.

LL Cool J’s workout routine is a combination of cardio, whole body circuit training, interval training, and boxing.  He is an extremely busy man and does’t have time to workout some days so he makes sure he shocks his body with changing up the circuits.

Like most athletes and gym members, LL Cool J starts out by warming up.  He’ll either jog, use a stationary bike, do some jumping jacks.  He’ll jump into a circuit right after.  “I like circuits because he hits all of my big muscles and helps burn fat,”  LL Cool J told us at PIOP.

After the workout LL Cool J likes to box, where he will spar for 1-2 minutes and then do either jump squats, jump ropes, or box jumps in between rounds.
