But over the years, he has transformed himself not only into one of the best players in the league but also one of the fittest.
To build a body of such stature, he needs to follow a strict workout routine and a diet to complement it. Something which doesn’t have season and off-season.

“It’s very important for me to never stop improving, even in the offseason. When I’m not on the court playing I’m in the gym training and building strength. There is no time off. Eating well and exercising right is very important to me,” Antetokounmpo once said in an interview last year.
The workout routine of Giannis Antetokounmpo
According to Health Yogi, Giannis spends two hours a day exercising split across two times for an hour each. He exercises on all days except Sunday which is his rest day. His weekly routine is split equally for his upper body and lower body. Mondays and Wednesdays, Giannis works on his upper body while he works on his lower body on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Antetokounmpo spends his Saturdays for cardio workout which might include running or involving in any other sports.
When Giannis was once asked about his favorite workout, he said they were those exercises that help him develop as an all-round player.
“I consider myself an all-around player so I try to reflect that in what I do to prepare off the court. I love exercises that help improve all parts of my game to be a better player in all aspects of the game.”
