Kobe Bryant is one of the most successful NBA players of all time. He was also one of the hardest-working athletes. Kobe came from a family of basketball stars. However, at the age of 12, he failed to get a single point in a summer basketball camp.

But Kobe did not let that stop him. He worked hard to improve his game. Bryant famously followed a 666 training regimen, which included working out for six hours a day, six days a week, and six months out of the year. This level of dedication is rare among athletes, and it is one of the main reasons why Bryant was able to achieve such great things on the court.
