Rick Ross' #RossFit Program: How to Lose 100 Pounds Like the Bawse

We used to lovingly refer to Rick Ross as the "Fat Boy," but it must have been getting under his skin.

He's embarked on a tireless mission to get back in shape, and he's made the effort public by using the hashtag #RossFit, snapping pics along the way, and even including his exercise regimen in his latest music video, "Drug Dealer's Dream."

Big homie may be the Bawse of Wing Stop, but he's taking his health seriously. The rapper's already lost a reported 100 pounds, and that's just the beginning. So how can you get #RossFit? Just check this guide and get to steppin'. (But never on your keys, of course.)

Also, this is one of our favorite video interviews of Rick Ross ever. You should probably watch the whole thing.
