Russell Westbrook is one of the fastest and most explosive athletes in the NBA. A lot of it his abilities come from raw, natural talent but the Russell Westbrook workout regime is specifically designed to maximize his balance and stabilization. Based on instability training, the principle behind it is to train the body’s core to stabilize the body even during extreme movements.
The routine incorporates a series of exercises that require the body’s core to provide balance and stabilization throughout the exercise. The exercises are done whilst the body itself is doing an independent balancing act ie standing on one leg whilst doing dumbbell curls and presses.
This not only works all the primary muscles but also places a lot of emphasis on building up core strength because of the necessity to hold the body steady and balanced during the exercise. And it’s Westbrook’s core strength that is responsible for his explosive strength on the court.
He also does resistance training by working against cords attached to his body. This builds up his muscle strength, which gives him the speed and extreme acceleration he’s famous for, during games. Additionally, he works out on sand hills with high intensity sprints and lateral movements. Working in sand is an extremely effective training method. It forces the leg muscles to stabilize ones feet in the sand and increases energy use ie calorie burning. For instance, just walking in sand has been shown to increase energy use by 1.8 to 2.7 times vs walking on hard ground. And if you want to run in it you’ll use up 1.2 to 1.6 times as much energy.

Russell Westbrook had one more bit of history to settle before the regular season ended. And he did so as only Westbrook could, passing Oscar Robertson’s single-season record for triple-doubles with his 42nd of the 2016-17 campaign and notching 50 points on a buzzer-beating, game-winning 3-pointer that eliminated the Denver Nuggets from playoff contention.
As for diet, Russell likes to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches just before a game for protein and carbohydrates. But man cannot live on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches alone so we have no doubt that he also takes a good supplement.
For the last couple of months we’ve been hearing stories about how guys in Hollywood such as Vin Diesel and Zac Efron or top NBA players like Russell Westbrook have been using two insane new products to lose body fat and add some incredible muscle bulk in mere weeks.
