Usher is incredibly buff and in shape, as evidenced by his latest Men's Health cover. Try not to gush all at once, ladies. Check out that billion dollar smile, too!

Before you dive into the spread photos, featuring Usher in a boxing motif -- something his protégé Justin Bieber explored, albeit in a markedly different way in Complex -- let's explore what Usher said about his workout and his mindset.

"I train like an athlete every day, believe it or not," Usher said.

Um, Ush, no one is questioning your dedication and your grueling workout, bro! Your body is all the evidence we need.

He also explained how he is able to balance the pain of getting in shape. No pain, no gain, right?

"Mentally, I'm the type of person who can ignore the pain. Put it somewhere else and allow my body to just go there," he says. "But I always suffer. 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."
