The basketball legend LeBron James is still ruling the NBA, even at the age of 38. He is unstoppable and still considered one of the best players even after completing 20 seasons.

James’ extraordinary skills and ability play a vital role in the equation, but his pre-game and post-game routines for physical preparation are also equally important.

The NBA recently posted a video on Instagram that gave us some behind-the-scenes glimpses at James’ world, though it is never possible to know all his secrets.

It's important for LeBron to get good quality sleep before the game for recovery. He starts by taking pre-workout shakes around 30 minutes before the workout.

LeBron once said about his pregame diet, “Before competition for me would be like a chicken breast and maybe a little pasta. The carbs help because you're going out and playing a lot of minutes.”

He likes doing cardio on the open football field as it's a cooling experience for his body, and he also feels nostalgic thinking about his high school days when he used to play football.

LeBron does workouts such as cardio for warming up and strength training exercises such as inverted rows, lunges, landmine rotational press, and core work.

As LeBron steps on the court before the game, he brushes up on his skills by practicing some long-range shots, jump shots, and some dunks too, along with some basic dribbling practice.
