Kobe Bryant and His Workout

Laker legend Kobe Bryant conditions year round to prepare for game day, with hopes of reaching the NBA finals. Kobe says, “During the season, I focus a lot on weight training, obviously building up my strength level as the season progresses. In the off-season, it’s about getting stronger as well, more agile. Also, conditioning plays an important part in that, because you want to make sure you come into the upcoming season in tip-top shape. Then, obviously, you want to get on the basketball floor and work on your skills.”

During the off-season Kobe says his workout is “all Olympic lifts. I do a lot of track work.” This workout includes “clean-pulls, deadlifts, Romanian deadlifts, back squats, things of that nature.”

Boston Celtics Ray Allen Workout and Diet

The NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers head back to Boston tied up thanks to the performance of Ray Allen in Game 2. The 34-year-old vet has had to overcome an injury-plagued career and multiple surgeries to win his first championship in 2008. However, thanks to an improved workout and diet, Ray Allen and the Boston Celtics are looking for their second title in three years.

“In an effort to get him more explosive, we’ve had to try and teach him how to land all over again,” said Norton.

As revealed in Mens’ Fitness, Ray Allen started working with Boston Celtics strength and condition coaches, Walter Norton Jr. and Bryan Doo prior to the 2007-08 season. Allen had just had surgery on both his ankles, so the trainers had to come up with a workout program that would help his joints. In particular, Ray Allen trains with resistance bands while squatting or lunging to incorporate his glutes into his jumping and mechanics.
