We Got an Inside Look at Kevin Love's Offseason Training and Diet
Author: Josh St. Clair
Publication: Men's Health
Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love is a five-time All-Star, an Olympic gold medalist, NBA champion, and an all-time great at nomming on all things almond butter.
Men’s Health caught up with Love in NYC, where he’s spending his offseason prepping for the 2019-20 NBA season like the champion he is. Certain “keyboard warriors” (a.k.a. his former teammates) have accused Love of spending more time at play than work—hiking in Bryce Canyon, hitting golf balls in the snow in Whistler, and chilling on the beach in Montauk. But Love isn’t sleeping on his season preparation, and his focus on diet and exercise prove it—even if they’re somewhat less Insta-worthy than flying a plane over the Hudson.
Since he hasn't posted as much of this type of thing online, we'll show you the footage to back up Love's commitment. His fridge is a small shrine to conscientiousness: cartons of eggs, stacks of Applegate chicken, and Essentia water. Lots of water. “I think I saw Dwayne Johnson say he drinks four gallons a day,” Love says, sounding both impressed and intimidated. “I try to drink my body weight in ounces—240 ounces [1.8 gallons]. I’m drinking a lot.”
The Rock is just on another level. Love says he drinks red wine and “pinots,” to unwind because, as he says, “I’m from Portland.”
And then there are heaps of humus—like a whole half-shelf dedicated to the spread—alongside another shelf devoted to almond butter and another to almonds, which he says help him to get good sleep. His top shelf is stocked with Split, a snack combination of almond butter and some kind of fruit. It’s like peanut butter and jelly in a pouch—minus the bread or personality. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
