Today’s morning motivation features former NBA Rookie Challenge MVP, All-Star, Finals MVP and champion Andre Iguodala. At the age of 33, he still looks as lean and fit as he did when he came into the league as high-flying poster maker for Iverson’s 76ers. After watching these videos and checking out the following vertical routine, you will see why.
Also worth mentioning about Iggy is he was on the National Honor Roll in high school, won All-Conference academic honors and won State Journal Student-Athlete of the week several times during his days in Chicago, when he played on an AAU team called the Illinois Warriors.
IGGY’S VERT WORKOUT via Phil Star
He shared his vertical routine, which includes jogging for a minimum of 45 minutes thrice a week. He also skips rope 100 times thrice a week. He said jumping rope, simple as it may seem, not only gives you explosiveness and calf strength, it also builds stamina while working on overall leg strength.
Iguodala combines weight and jump training. His weight training twice a week consists of exercises like calf raises, squats, lunges, and leg presses (two sets of 10 reps per exercise). Jump training twice weekly consists of exercises like lunge jumps, calf hops, and rim jumps (two sets of 15 reps per exercise).
