Kobe Bryant was a professional basketball player who spent 20 years playing for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA.
His work ethic and dedication to maintaining his physical and mental fitness have played a significant role in his success on the court, leading to numerous accolades and a net worth as impressive as his playing record.
He is sadly missed.
- Kobe was famously meticulous about his diet and training, cutting out junk food and tightly controlling his intake of lean proteins and vegetables.
- He believed in the importance of sleep and aimed to get at least six to eight hours of rest a night, even if it meant sacrificing time on the court.
- His daily routine included intense morning workouts, regular recovery sessions, and mental visualization exercises.
- He made time for family activities and evening relaxation before going to bed.
Even after retirement, Bryant woke up long before the sun rose, eager to get his morning workout in.
However, gone was the challenge of remaining one of the best basketball players of his time. The Lakers alumna needed to find something to work towards. Kobe once said that “For me, it was, ‘OK, I have to aim for something.’ So I said, ‘I want to aim for size. I want to aim for bulk. So that’s a tangible thing. I’m going to go for that."
Not one to sit around, he ultimately decided it was time to begin working out again after giving his body a few months off.
Bryant started his day with an intense workout, including weight training and cardio, finishing just in time to take the kids to school at 7:30 am. A devoted husband and father, he joined his wife in a breakfast he made.
After his morning workout, Bryant typically spent the afternoon focusing on his career. This could include practices, games, and other professional obligations. He was known for his intense dedication to the sport and often put extra time on the court to improve his skills.
Midway through the afternoon, Bryant could be found at the school gates to pick up his kids before running them to practice. Later in the afternoon, he would find some time to relax, perhaps with a book he was reading.
Bryant was clearly a family man. He helped make dinner (or at least would try to be there for it).
As a devoted husband and father, he enjoyed spending time with his wife and children in the evenings With the kids off to bed — at a reasonable hour, of course — Bryant would unwind and recharge for the next day before getting a good night's sleep.
