After a stellar 17-year career in the NBA, Kings star Mike Bibby finally called it quits in 2012 at the age of 39-years-old. For most retired NBA players, life after the game is about rest, business, and having a whole lot of fun.
For Bibby, though, it includes a lot of time in the weight room.
In the years since retiring from the NBA, Bibby has made working out somewhat of a hobby and is apparently always in the gym. He recently revealed his routine.
“I’m always working out,” Bibby told Kings.com. “In the morning, I do full-body lifts for three hours, three days a week, and the other two days, with bands. I go to the gym and play (basketball) later in the day and do some more drills at night.
“I was always built like this; it’s just (NBA teams) never wanted me to lift. That’s what I do. I love lifting weights, I love to workout and I love extra work.”
You don't get a body like that playing golf 5 days a week.
But I guess his post-retirement life isn't that much different than his before it. He worked hard to become a star in the league, averaging 17.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists in 476 games. While he never made an All-Star team, Bibby was an exceptional player, and a name fans will remember for many years to come.
Now, he can be that same type of role-model to bodybuilders and gym rats all around the world.
