Well if you’ve been wondering where Usher has been lately,…wonder no more!!
Back in the best shape of his life, after training like an athlete everyday for his new role as legendary boxer, Sugar Ray Leonard in upcoming film Hands Of Stone. Usher graces the cover of Men’s Health looking OMG!! You can clearly see that Usher is committed to this role because he definitely have the body to prove it.
“I train like an athlete everyday, believe it or not,'””My commitment to this character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him’, he said of the boxer. ‘The hair, the personality, the manner he conducts himself in – all that. He’s an incredible man.” says Usher of Sugar Ray.
But working his body so hard did give him a little health scare for overdoing it, admitted Usher.
‘My second day I decided to ride to the gym. So I rode there. Boxed. Rode the bike back home. 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,’ he added.
Usher allegedly was hospitalized for exhaustion and dehydration for a short period of time, he said that now he paces himself now!
Slow down boo, don’t literally work yourself to death..
