LeBron James workout video on Instagram - Is as ridiculous as you imagine

There are just certain things you're allowed to do when you're a two-time NBA champion. Such things include flipping tires on the set from Demolition Man surrounded by barrels of fire and doing dips in decorative gold chains.

I know this isn't a real training montage because it's not from a Rocky movie. If it were, Lebron James would look like Mr. T and I would be have mixed feelings about kind of rooting for him but also wanting Rocky to win. And guess what? I'm not conflicted because King James ain't Mr. T. Not by a long shot. Give me pull ups on rebar in a basement over screaming during rope drills any day.
