Hang out with All-Star Center Roy Hibbert as he goes through a typical day in his NBA life.
About the Video
NBA All-Star Roy Hibbert had a career year in 2011-2012 that led to a max contract with the Indiana Pacers. A big part of the reason why he was rewarded with that deal was his work in the gym and on the court.
Hibbert has completely reshaped his body over the last several years. When he first arrived at Georgetown, he was unable to do a single Push-Up. Raw but tall, Hibbert started the process of changing his physique in order to maximize his effectiveness under the basket. Since then, he's become a total gym rat.
On the day STACK followed Hibbert around, he started off by eating a full, balanced breakfast. Hibbert's meals are provided by his nutritionist, Dr. Mike Roussell, and he'll often have eggs, ham and oatmeal to start his day.
From there, Hibbert took STACK around a typical day in the gym. After eating, he drove to the Pacers arena to train with his teammates and get after a full-body weight workout. After that, he played ball with the rest of the team on the practice court. After hours of lifting, running and shooting, most athletes would probably need to call it a day. But not Hibbert.
One of the reasons Hibbert's been able to have so much success as a young center is his work ethic. After practice, Hibbert took Roussell out to Integrated Fighting Academies for an MMA conditioning workout. It's easy to be suspicious that Hibbert was only doing it for the cameras, but this is his usual routine. He works out for the full day five or six days a week whether or not anyone's paying attention.
Watch Hibbert work through his day to find out what it takes to become an NBA All-Star. Hibbert started off his career as raw as an athlete can possibly be. Now, after making training and nutrition a big part of his life, he's become a dominant big man and the centerpiece of his team.
