Lil Uzi Vert Is Looking Shredded In Recent Video Showing Off Deadlifts

Lil Uzi Vert has been busy in the gym recently and the results are visible.

Lil Uzi Vert is a rapper that has become known for many things, and that includes having a 10-carat diamond embedded into his forehead. Recently while working on his latest project, The Pink Tape, the rapper has been putting in some big-time work in the gym.

A video shared on his Instagram for his 15.6 million followers, Lil Uzi Vert showed off a workout that included 262lb deadlifts for a triple.

Uzi stands at 5-foot-4 and is figured to weigh around 150 pounds. The video shows the rapper deadlifting almost twice his bodyweight and by the looks of it, there was plenty left in the tank. He was able to pull off the lift three times with the weight being moved relatively easily in each rep. Prior to each lift, Uzi took a second to gather himself and keep good form.

 

Uzi is using a hex bar to perform the lift. This bar actually improves spinal positioning and helps capture full-body power. This is because of the shape of the bar and the fact that the lifter stands in the middle. The bar works well for pushing, pulling, lifting, and loaded carries.

This was clearly the preferred method of training for Lil Uzi Vert. There has clearly been some progress made since he began training. There were also some videos shown of Uzi performing curls and hanging body work. Once he removed his shirt, there was a shredded six-pack revealed.

Lil Uzi Vert has built up an exceptional worth creating songs like XO Tour Llif3 and The Way Life Goes. He is working on a new project, both in the studio and in the gym. We have seen that his work in the gym has been paying off to this point.
