Here is a little bit of what of what Bryan said to say to Men’s Fitness.
MF: Can you give us some insight into your training routine, both off-season and during the season?
Kobe: 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.
