Lebron James is fresh off two huge victories in the last week over Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers and Dwayne Wade’s Miami Heat, further cementing his claim to the title of NBA’s Best Player – and perhaps the NBA’s best athlete. The Cavs took down the Lakers last Thursday behind Lebron’s 37 effort and then went wire to wire with the Heat Monday night as James threw in 32 points and added a key steal and score in the game’s closing seconds.
King James is the NBA’s leading score and currently has his Cavaliers on a hot streak. As winners of 5 straight Cleveland currently owns the NBA’s best record. There is no truth to the rumor that Lebron is superhuman, but he is certainly impressive and is arguably the most athletic person in the world right now.
Here is the workout program James uses to prepare for the NBA season, courtesy of Men’s Health.
Begin each session with calisthenics and core moves. Do each superset 3 times, resting 45 seconds between supersets.
- TCW Tip - When doing a set for maximum reps make sure your form remains perfect for all reps. There is no need to fight for extra reps with sloppy form.
- Dumbbell Snatch – 5 reps per arm
- Single Arm Cable Row – 10 reps per arm
- TCW Tip – Use your hips and glutes to drive the beginning portion of the DB Snatch.
