Wolves’ Wiggins putting himself through wild offseason workout routine
Last season, Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, produced 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds per night. Clearly, the Toronto native wasn't satisfied with those numbers, judging by his intense offseason workouts.
How does Andrew Wiggins look this offseason? Like a light heavyweight.
Wiggins, the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year, isn’t resting on his laurels this summer, judging by a recent YouTube video that documented his workout regimen.
Working with training partner Seon Holmes, Wiggins, a 6-foot-8, 199-pound 20-year-old, put on gloves for some boxing work (exhibiting a decent right hook in the process).
He also did some unique gymnastics work.
And plenty of pull-ups. . . And pushing and pulling of heavy sleds (the truly unique training begins around the 3-minute mark in the attached video below, as the wiry Wiggins displays a surprising amount of strength).
Last season, Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, produced 16.9 points and 4.6 rebounds per night. Clearly, the Toronto native wasn’t satisfied with those numbers, nor the Wolves’ 16-66 final record.
If Wiggins’ teammates worked even half as hard as he did this offseason, perhaps the Timberwolves will be trending upward in 2015-16.
