LeBron James Continues to Train

Even though James didn’t show his followers what his actual home gym looks like, he did share enough to know that he’s still staying in shape. It was clear enough that the NBA star had enough workout equipment on hand to continue his workouts, even while he was home. Most of the equipment that was shown is what you would find in an average home gym.

His workout routine consists of multiple rounds of basic exercises like push-ups and standing barbell curls to some more advanced, including kneeling cable pushes/pulls, lateral band walks, three-point renegade row, and more.

King James also works on his cardio by doing a few rounds of 30-second sprints on his VersaClimber machine.
