Growing up, Prince wasn’t a fan of hitting the gym. But it was Jennifer Lopez, who is a fitness enthusiast herself, who motivated him to work out regularly by asking him to take his shirt off during rehearsals, thus making him conscious of his body.
He wakes up early in the morning at 7 am and hits the canyon often. While in Los Angeles, he hits the gym and works out by doing a ton of heavy lifting and cardio exercise.
In order to maintain his buff body, he has also made changes to his diet by minimalizing the intake of carbs and salt while replacing it with protein and water.
