The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Kobe Bryant Running on an Anti-Gravity Treadmill (Video)

Kobe Bryant, known as one of the hardest working basketball players in NBA history, tore his achilles back in the Spring during the last week of the NBA season.

He had surgery immediately and has been posting updates on his recovery via his Twitter and Instagram.

Now comes this video (above) of Kobe (via Instagram) training on an Anti-Gravity treadmill at the Lakers’ practice facility.

Runner’s World identifies the Anti-Gravity Treadmill in this way:

AlterG treadmills allow users to run at a specified percentage of full weight bearing. Originally designed for astronauts, the treadmills have become popular among professional athletes in many sports as a way to speed recovery from injury. Alberto Salazar has broadened use of it to healthy runners; his Nike Oregon Project athletes do some of their running on AlterGs as a way to accumulate more mileage with reduced impact forces.

So it’s like the pull-up machine at your gym where you can pick which weight/% of your weight you want to actually be pulling up. Perhaps Kobe Bean was just floating inside the AlterG! It looks impressive none the less.

Kobe still has a long way to go to be ready for the NBA season, but Kobe appears ahead of schedule to make a return to the NBA sooner rather than later.

Kobe has his knees magically repaired in Germany a year or two ago. No word on how much deer-antler spray has been used on the achilles! (Joke…maybe!)
