Usher Covers Men’s Health, Talks Sugar Ray Character and more

Usher shows off what he's working with in the latest issue of Men's Health Magazine. The multi-Grammy winning R&B crooner, who is getting extra fit for his upcoming role as boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard in the film "Hands Of Stone," talks about being committed to his character and his workout pains.

"I train like an athlete everyday, believe it or not," a ripped Usher says in the November 2013 issue of Men's Health.

"My commitment to this character demands that I not only physically get ready, but also become him," he adds about the legendary boxer. "The hair, the personality, the manner he conducts himself in – all that. He’s an incredible man."

While things may look sweet on the cover, the 34-year-old admits that getting extra fit has it's drawbacks.

"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."

He continues: "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."
