LL Cool J is a confident rapper who is never afraid to go shirtless onstage when he's rocking the mic.

The New York native has always stayed in tip-top form and in good health. Honestly, we don't think we ever saw him overweight or bloated in his 40-plus career.

The 45-year-old veteran rhyme-slinger still looks better than ever with his shirt off. His platinum workout regime is proof positive that you can stay healthy and in marvelous shape at any age. His muscular bod and washboard abs are still hard as hell.
