Ron Artest Workout Training Muscle Routine

Forward, Los Angeles Lakers

6’7, 260 lbs.

Max Bench Press: 460 lbs


According to Men's Fitness, Artest does full-day workouts four times a week to build lean muscle in his body. Artest gives his body three days of rest, which is ideal for muscle recovery time. Your body grows when it rests so Artest knows the importance of proper rest days. Each workout day consists of a routine that includes skills and strength building exercises. He uses a combination of weight-training power moves with simple basic moves that you can do anywhere, such as pushups, chinups, and bench dips. He also loves to do sand running. Training on sand provides many benefits for Artest. He develops more strength in his lower body running on sand. Since the sand shifts beneath him as he runs, Artests' ankles, arches, and calves are much more engaged and will become stronger in the process.  In addition, sand training improves balance because the uneven sand surface activates nearly all the muscles in the body, which will result in more strength and fluidity of motion. Also, running on sand puts less impact on the joints and muscles as the feet hit the sand. Also, studies show that people who run or walk on sand burned between 1.2 and 1.8 times more calories per mile on each run, which can explain why Artest has such a lean and muscular physique.


What's interesting enough is that Artest has a preference for working out by the Strand in Manhattan Beach instead of the gym because he "want[s] to show people how you don't have to get a gym membership if you can't afford it". Artest says, "I like to use my body to battle sometimes. I work on my body more than I work on my game". If that's not a compelling enough reason for you to hit the gym to improve your basketball game, I don't know what is.



Artest is known for his intense work ethic in the gym and is
truly magazine cover worthy.


Ron Artest has been the premier perimeter defender in the NBA for over 10 years running.  His physical play and extreme athletisitism allow him to stay in front of quicker players, and bang down low with guys taller than him.  Artest entered the rap scene in 2006 and soon after released a track called “Workout.”  When asked  why he made the song Artest replied “Because that’s what I do. I workout.”

Even after Ron-Ron hit the game winning shot in Game 5 against the Pheonix Suns, he went straight to the gym at 10:30 PM PST to work on his legs and abs. This dude is a warrior and the reason why he is such a good defender is because he trains his body and mind to be the toughest badass in basketball. 



As for what Artest eats, he gets most of his food from whole foods and cooks many of his own meals. Artest's typical game-day meal looks something like this:


Breakfast: Egg-white omelete, soy cheese, spinach, sliced apple, oatmeal
Lunch: Grilled salmon, veggies, brown rice
Pre- meal: Black or kidney beans
During game: Two oranges
Postgame: Sushi

As you can see, he has a good combination of protein, carbohydrates and fat to provide his body with a steady supply of nutrients throughout the day.
