Tobias Harris teamed up with FreshFocusSports.com to produce the video, and it looked like a strenuous day for Harris. As you can see in the video it all starts out with a breakfast in his home area of Long Island, NY. After a basketball workout for a few hours, he finishes off his workout with boxing. This is a different way to end a workout for most athletes. Athletes that require a lot of cardiovascular work, tend to start with a boxing or agility type of workout before they begin there true workout.
You can also see that Harris is doing a full body workout in the weight room. Follow this type of workout next time you are trying to improve your conditioning for basketball season.
