Kevin Love | How Yoga Can Make You a Better Athlete
When Kevin Love, power forward of the Cleveland Cavaliers, was drafted into the NBA in 2008, he needed to find a way to handle the physical and mental demands of playing at the pro level. Today, Kevin isn’t just a five-time NBA all-star or a 2016 NBA champion -- he’s also an avid yoga practitioner and an advocate for mental health. By incorporating yoga into his daily training routine, Kevin has come to understand the “mind-body connection” -- that taking time to breathe, to meditate, to set an intention, no matter how small, can have huge impacts on all facets of fitness. On this episode of TRAINED, Kevin tells us about how his early sports experiences have helped him stay competitive, how his approach to nutrition, recovery, and sleep has changed over the course of his career, and how he plans to keep playing basketball for as long as he can.
