LL Cool J Workout
The LL Cool J workout was developed by the singer, songwriter, actor and producer to help him stay in shape as a performer and in accordance with his belief in having a healthy lifestyle. His workout books contain a number of exercise programs that are designed to be suitable for both men and women.
Create a healthy eating plan. Make decisions about eating habits and choose healthy foods to eat while doing the LL Cool J Workout as outlined in the materials that support the program. Warm up for at least five to ten minutes prior to beginning the LL Cool J Workout. Begin by using a stationary bike, treadmill, run in place, do some jumping jacks or use another cardio device.
Do complete circuits before breaks. Plan to do a complete circuit before resting in between the exercises of the LL Cool J Workout. Instead, wait until the last move has been completed prior to taking a short one and a half minute break. Then do the same circuit again. For example, perform the chest and cardio circuit two times. Do the biceps and cardio circuit three times in a row. Then rest for one and a half minutes before starting the next circuit of exercises.
Start with the chest and cardio circuit. Do the barbell bench press for the number of reps desired ( eight to ten reps are recommended). Then do the explosive pushup for eight to ten reps. Follow this with the standing cable fly for the same amount of reps that you did for the other exercises in this series. Finally, do the mountain climber with your hands on the Swiss ball for eight to ten or more reps. Take a short one and a half minute break and drink at least a cup of fresh, room temperature water.
Follow with the biceps and cardio circuit exercises. Start with the barbell curl exercise and do eight to ten reps. Then immediately do the preacher curl for eight to ten reps. Start the mountain climber exercise and continue for the number of reps at the level you are at for the LL Cool J Workout. Take a short one and a half minute break. Be sure to drink plenty of water at each break.
- Perform the above circuits for one time a week during a month long period. Replace your usual and normal biceps and chest exercises with the ones above. Consider trying to raise the cardio and poundage intensity slightly each week that you do the LL Cool J Workout. At months end, return back to your regular chest and biceps training. Use the other circuits of the LL Cool J Workout for other parts of your body.
