It has been a while since a story came up where someone’s workout regimen would make a professional athlete throw up. Well, that seems to be the case for Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry. However, the latest reports about his workout routine have left the NBA fanbase split in two. 

There is no doubt that by the time Stephen Curry retires, he will go down as arguably the best shooter in NBA history. But clearly, to be the best, Curry must’ve put in days and nights of intense workouts to reach the level he is at right now.
