How hip-hop’s most successful entrepreneur stays fit despite having the busiest schedule of all

From the Fitness Editor’s of Men’s Health

Squat Press
Quads, shoulders, hamstrings, glutes, core
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Your arms should be bent so that your fists are at shoulder height, palms forward. Squat with your hips pushed back—as if you were going to sit in a chair—until your thighs are parallel to the floor. At the same time, press your arms skyward. Slowly come back to the starting position. Repeat five times, building up to 15 reps.

Pull-up Blast
Back, core, biceps, hip flexors
Begin in a classic pull-up position, hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. In one explosive movement, pull yourself up and tuck your knees into your chest. Return to the starting position. Repeat 10 times, building up to 20 reps.

Stability-Ball Single-Arm Press
Chest, core, shoulders, triceps
Begin with your upper back on a stability ball. Bend your elbows and hold a dumbbell in one hand (rest the other hand, fist clenched, on your stomach). Contract your abs to stabilize your body, and then extend the dumbbell straight up until your arm reaches a locked position. At the same time, shift your body weight onto the opposite elbow and push the dumbbell higher into the air. Return to the starting position. Repeat 10 times, then switch sides and repeat.

Dead-Lift High Pull
Nearly every muscle from head to toe
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and grasp a barbell with a slightly wider grip, palms facing you. The movement begins with the barbell on the ground and your body in a low squat. Drive your hips and the bar up at the same time. As you lift the bar, keep your elbows higher than your hands and finish the motion at the top of your chest. Return to the starting position. Repeat 10 times, building up to 15 reps.
