LeBron Loves Yoga!

In a recent Miami Herald article, LeBron James, a star of the Miami Heat basketball team, is said to have used an offseason exercise regimen of yoga, Pilates, and swimming to amp up the court endurance he is known for.

From the Miami Herald article by Joseph Goodman:
“Does it work for everybody? I don’t know,” James said Friday. “I’m not a guru about how to be in the best condition — don’t let me sit here and tell you that. But it works for me.”

As of now, James is second only to Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng in time on the court, clocking in an average 43.4 minutes per playoff game to Deng's 43.5. In Game 2 of the second Eastern Conference playoff game, James logged 45 minutes. If he keeps up with the yoga, he might be on the court even more!

  1. That may be the reason why he is one of the most ferocious guys in the game today. He's tough, but he's also always calm every time he plays. Some athletes are into yoga exercises, like Blake Griffin, who is one of the most flexible and high-flying cagers today.
