Probably, everyone has ever noticed the fact that almost all the rappers look athletic. Is it a coincidence? Let it be, but Ja Rule’s example justifies that only hard training can make the result visible.
It’s not a secret at all that this man can’t boast with huge built, but how he manages to look big? That is the question.
We can assume that Ja Rule has a good physique by nature in addition to quite decent muscles. Besides, the rapper’s body is very lean. In this respect, Ja Rule has only to work out and develop everything he already has – he pumps his front side and this makes him look bigger.
According to some calculations, the singer has low body fat percentage – something about 12%. Ja Rule’s shoulders and arms are well built, so to keep them toned and pumped he prefers barbell deadlifts together with barbell squats.
To make the body of his dream, Ja Rule has to be strong and optimistic. Actually, he is.
Still, the point is not only in exhausting work outs and even not in strict diet, but also in hormones. An interesting aspect is that male hormones work effectively when a body is lean, so the first step on the way to pumped body is to make it lean.
Ja Rule says that to gain such form he trains not every day, because his body needs rest. Besides, every muscle group is trained only once a week. That’s because the rapper prefers concentrating on a specific body part rather than train all the body in one training.
It’s hard to overestimate the importance of good physique on the stage. For this reason Ja Rule trains everywhere he can. Even during that unpleasant incident when Ja Rule was imprisoned, he still went on training. Yes, even being behind the bars the musician developed his own circuit and followed it step by step.
