Lil Uzi Vert is one of the biggest names in the music game right now. The gregarious rapper is famous for popping up anywhere and everywhere, making appearances in fan videos chatting with kids and even as the ultimate wedding guest. But one place you can definitely find him is at the gym.
Philadelphia rapper Lil Uzi Vert has gained ten pounds of muscle after tweaking his workout routine. He’s pushing himself to gain another ten. In order to help his fans reach their fitness goals, Uzi shared his routine with Men’s Health, showing how he gets down in the gym.
In the last year, we’ve seen Uzi pack some weight onto his slight frame, developing his body and training hard. Through the changes he’s made to his diet and workouts, he gained ten pounds of muscle in 2021 and he wants to spend next year getting even more buff. “Four to five months ago I was 134 [pounds], but now I’m 142,” said Uzi.
The routine he’s using to get bigger combines high-intensity boxing drills with more traditional strength and conditioning training, a technique that will allow him to hone his athleticism and focus on conditioning even as he adds mass. “Working out definitely helps me with my performance,” he told Men’s Health Magazine. “When I come to the gym, you see how heavy I’m breathing, I’m getting all my anxiety out.”
During his video with Men’s Health, Uzi offered up some tips, telling his fans to start their workouts with heavy exercises like the bench press, and encouraging folks not to be scared of the gym. “If you don’t go to the gym, you should start,” he said. “You won’t feel weird, because everyone started off at the gym someway, somehow.”
