When Steph Curry isn’t busy barging into music studios, travelling to Tanzania and doing charitable work such as the Nothing But Nets program, hanging with his beautiful family or making Vine posts that make fun of NBA players, he’s in the gym working hard as part of his “No Days Off” off season training.
This summer is the first summer since his rookie season where Steph has been 100% healthy and he’s taking full advantage of his health by working with the trainers at Accelerate Basketball with grueling 3 hour workouts.
“I’ve kind of been in an underdog situation since high school,” Curry said. “That’s the one thing I can control, how hard you work in the gym in the summer because it prepares you to get through an 82-game schedule. It gets harder and harder every year. That’s a big part of my progression as a player.”
“The team knows your game inside and out,” Curry said of the playoffs. “It is more physical, there’s no doubt about that. At the end of the season, you’ve already played 82 games, plus preseason, playing heavy minutes and having to raise that intensity level even though your body is fatigued from the season. That’s where this part of the summer is huge.
“Anybody can get ready for training camp and get ready for pre-All-Star schedule, but to sustain yourself over the long haul, especially in the playoffs, that’s when you have to raise your game to a new level.”
