LL Cool J's Platinum Workout

LL didn't always have a diesel body—he chiseled it the old-fashioned way, with hard work and discipline. Here he shares the secrets of his transformation in a uniquely creative, yet no-nonsense regimen—enlivened with humor and sheer force of personality—that will inspire readers to enjoy working out as never before, while building a body they never thought possible. The book offers four levels of fitness, from Bronze to Platinum, including:
- a 4-week beginner's program that takes inches off the waist and boosts energy
-a 5-week program for intermediates that increases strength while maintaining muscular and cardiovascular endurance
- an advanced 9-week program that turns the body into a muscle-building and fat-burning machine—complete with 6-pack abs and as much energy as LL Cool J
- the hardcore 3-week fat-torching program LL used for the "Control Myself" video—a new level in ripped-to-the-bone fitness and sex appeal
- a special 4-week "Diamond" program for women seeking to shape up fast for summer or an upcoming event
- meal plans and recipes that fuel workouts while burning fat with food
