Athletes are always looking for new ways to keep them in shape and give themselves that edge as they progress through their careers.
Various NFL players, most notably Clay Mathews and Brian Cushing, have trained with Randy Couture and Jay Glazer and their Xtreme Couture MMA Training.
As Tim Duncan’s time with the San Antonio Spurs is starting to come to an end, he is looking to perhaps prolong his NBA career and it appears boxing is being added to his training regiment during the offseason.
This summer the “Big Fundamental” is giving boxing a try and training with two-time world boxing champion Jesse James Leija.
Leija, tweeted the following picture after Duncan worked out with him and it is quite noticeable TD is looking leaner.
