Life after professional sports can be tough for athletes. Many of them pack on the pounds, and turn into a shell of their former selves. But, as long as Kevin Garnett has Beyoncé as his fitness inspiration, he will not be one of those people.
In an interview with Bill Simmons on his The NBA Show podcast, Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick revealed that Garnett, who joined the team as a consultant, looks to Queen Bey for pointers on how to stay in shape. Redick recalls how KG pointed out how Beyoncé seemingly does it all during her performances, and doesn't show one bit of fatigue. Now, the former 22-year NBA veteran applies that same practice to his offseason workout programs.
“One time I saw her working out, and she was doing her dances and she was singing while she was doing her dancing," Garnett said to Redick, per TIME. "So then I’m thinking to myself, maybe I should run and sing at the same time. So in the offseason, I would go to Malibu and I would go down to the beach, and when I run on the beach I would be like ‘Lalala lalala lalala,’ while I’m running. So then, when I get on the court and I’m getting back on defense and I’m talking on defense, I don’t get tired.”
If there's anyone to model your life after, it's gotta be The Queen, no? Listen to the podcast in its entirety below.
