Cristiano Ronaldo And LeBron James Are Showing Us How To Workout Like A GOAT At Home
If you're anything like us, right now you're so overwhelmed at the endless choice of at-home workouts that have flooded the internet as of late, when an exercise regime that'll help you build a body like a famous person comes along, you're immediately drawn to it. After all, it feels goof to know you're training like the best, instead of just blindly following the advice of a random fitness influencer.
Thankfully though, with the world's leading sports brands all using this strange period of lockdown to encourage us to get a sweat on at home, more and more of the athletes they sponsor also taking the chance to help do the same. Take two of the most iconic athletes in history, Cristiano Ronaldo and LeBron James, for example, as both have been active on social media, posting their own workout tips for the world to join in on.
Compile enough of Ronaldo's frequent at-home IG posts and you can get yourself a pretty good idea of how he trains his gargantuan, insanely valuable legs. Seemingly, he spends a lot of time on the exercise bike, but also incorporates things like sprints up his driveway and resistance work to build a combination of mass, endurance, and explosive athleticism.
Meanwhile, LeBron James is also doing his bit to encourage people to keep active at home, regularly posting his workouts to his instagram stories, sometimes even going so far as to list the reps and sets he's pumping out. Even if you can't get to a gym right now, a simple screenshot will give you access to the workout of an elite athlete for when they re-open, which can't be a bad thing.
The obvious caveat to all of this is that both James and Ronaldo have pretty extensive home gyms to use, while we're all being left to make do with whatever bodyweight exercises we can scrounge off the various fitness websites on social media. That's not to say that you can't get a good workout in, though. Nike's Training Club app actually has a Cristiano Ronaldo bodyweight workout you can do right now, alongside athlete workouts performed by the likes of Rory McIlroy, Serena Williams, Kyrie Irging, and world's fittest man Mat Fraser.
