LeBron James and Mike Mancias | A Training Lifestyle Takes Planning
Play • 26 min

Welcome back to Season 4 of Trained. To kick off our season, we’re sitting down with one of the greatest basketball players ever, LeBron James. LeBron is a three-time NBA champion, four-time MVP, and the current forward for the LA Lakers. With his trainer Mike Mancias, LeBron’s created a training routine that focuses not just on his day-to-day goals but on longevity — because he has no plans of stopping his career anytime soon. In this episode, LeBron and Mike give us an inside look into the deliberate approach that’s defined their training routine: how they’ve learned to optimize LeBron’s sleep, their approach to recovery through contrast hydrotherapy, and how they incorporate meditation into LeBron’s schedule. Because for LeBron and Mike, training isn’t just something they do in the gym; it’s a lifestyle. And one that needs to be planned.
