    He's been decent sized and lean for a long time but a few years ago he seemed to blow up.

    He has always been decent ripped and somewhat thick. Recently (about 3-4 years ago) he became really health focused and blew up. Now he is both ripped and pretty big.
    He was on some show a while ago when they asked him about it. He said he loves to workout now and just watches his diet lifts hard. Nothing else to it.
    He obviously has decent genetics though.

    You can tell he def. hits his arms and abs hard... but I think if he focused a bit more on his shoulders, traps, and chest he would blow up even considerably more.

    Obviously, pretty good genetics.

    It helps to have a personal trainer who focuses on you anytime you want while you workout in your 24 bedroom mansion.

    haahaha, true.

    If I had tons of money and tons of time to devote to anything I wanted like 99% of celebrities I would look like brad pitt in fight club!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!! onoes!!!!

    Seriously though, celebrities have no reason not to look good. LL Cool-J is just on the upper end of the celebrity fitness list.

    his routine was posted on some fitness mag. Basically all I remebmer is he had a 10-day routine. First half was mostly low-rep high weight lifting and the 2nd half was high-rep low weight. Basically - a dynamic workout routine that kept the body guessing all the time.


    Oh yah, he ran for about an hour 3-4x a week with weigthed vests and shit.


    and yes, when you are a millionaire capable of hiring a trainer for weights, cardio, yoga and 3 different chefs, I'd bet it'd be easy to stay on course.
