Yet, you probably see Dr. Dre marks in your current life more than you may recognize. For example, many people forget Dre is the CEO of Beats Electronics and was a previous president of Death Row Records. Much of the hip hop we hear these days, as well as the gear they listen to them on, is still heavily influenced by Dre.
One thing people still recognize Dre for is his physique and body which has always been stocky and wide.

Dre has reported before himself that he often does a weightlifting workout five times a week. His workout routine alternates between body weight exercises and more intense weightlifting. This helps build muscle with intensity and also lots of reps.
In the music video for Eminem’s ‘I Need A Doctor’ which he features on, you can see Dre performing many workouts similar to what he will do at home.
When Dre is weightlifting he reportedly focuses on two body parts per each lifting session. For example, pectorals and back, or biceps and triceps. This level of intensity plus reps will lead to much of the muscle he builds.
