So you want to be like Kobe? Kobe has scored over 40+ points against every team he has played. He’s become a basketball legend because he outworks everyone, both on the court and off it.
But they don’t know he was there probably at 1 p.m. getting up shots.
To put into perspective how much work he puts in, this is just ONE part of the infamous 666 workout that Kobe does- during the OFF season. That’s right- when players are holidaying in Ibiza, Kobe is putting in 6 hours of work, for 6 days a week, over 6 months. He breaks down each 6 hour workout into 2 hours of track running, 2 hours of shooting and skill conditioning, and 2 hours of conditioning and weightlifting in the gym. Today, we show you the exercises that make up the running and weightlifting parts of Kobe’s 666 Workout.
For all but the most elite of athletes, following Kobe’s entire workout will lead to overtraining and injuries, especially without proper recovery. Whilst it might not be possible to train for 6 hours a day, you can easily form an hour’s workout using these exercises as a template. As we’ve seen with Kobe, you will only get out what you put into it.
