Lamar Odom

Okay, Khloe Was Right ...

I'm Getting in Shape

7/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-lamar-odom-gym-instagram-01Lamar Odom is taking at least one piece of advice from his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian -- he's taking steps to get fit by hitting the gym again on the reg.  

Sources in Las Vegas tell us Lamar's been working out like crazy for the last month at a private fitness center called The R Club -- it's the gym in the gated community where he's now living. We're told he's putting in about 3 hours a day with a personal trainer. 

He's starting early too -- 7 AM for an outdoor run ... plus yoga, basketball, and weightlifting.

The ex-NBA baller had thickened up over the past 18 months or so -- since the split from Khloe.  

Based on the pic ... his workout regimen is working. We don't wanna call post breakup hotness, but seems perfectly timed with him and Khloe finally going through with the divorce.

Danica Patrick

Will Make You

Love Yoga

7/23/2015 4:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Danica Patrick's become a devout follower of yoga ... and she's making us devout fans of her following yoga.

The NASCAR driver showed off a position called the scorpion. We don't know a lot about yoga, but this looks super impressive, super flexible, and kinda hot.

Not as impressive -- the fact Danica says she's busting out this titillating move in her mom and dad's basement.

It might not help her win at the Brickyard this weekend, but it sure as hell won't hurt!

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Best Buddies Lifting Sesh

With J.J. Watt

7/17/2015 10:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0717-arnold-schwarznegger-justin-james-instagram-01The Arnold Schwarzenegger and J.J. Watt bromance is HEATING UP -- with the two meeting up for a late-night gym sesh ... to blast out a few squats?! 

Of course, the Houston Texans star struck up a friendship with Ahnold at the CMT Awards in Nashville last month -- and clearly, they've kept in touch. 

So, with J.J. in L.A. -- it appears Arnold invited Watt back to his home gym ... where, according to Schwarzenegger, he challenged Watt to do 50 reps on his squat machine. 

The result??

"He did 51. After dinner," Arnold said ... "Watch out, quarterbacks."

Houston Texans Cheerleader

ABS LIKE DEZ BRYANT!

7/14/2015 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Who says cheerleaders aren't athletes?!! 

Check out this video of Houston Texans cheerleader Daranesha busting out a pretty INSANE ab workout during a team gym session ... while hanging off a heavy bag!

It's the same workout Dallas Cowboys superstar Dez Bryant busts out when he's trying to get his stomach right ... and trust us, it's not easy. 

By the way, on her official Texans bio video, Daranesha says she mostly stays in shape by dancing around the house all day.

Yeah right.

Diddy Arrest

Sparks New Workout Craze

6/24/2015 10:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-diddy-workout-INSTAGRAM-01This is adding insult to alleged felony -- Diddy’s kettlebell arrest is now being mocked by workout fiends ... who are using his alleged weapon of choice to get in shape and get laughs.

The day after he got arrested ... “The Diddy Workout” instantly became a thing for gym rats ... who've taken to grabbing kettlebells, doing a few reps and belting out Diddy's catchphrase ... “take that, take that.” It's as ridiculous looking as it sounds.

Based on social media, trainers are picking up on the craze ... adding the "Workout" to classes. 

So, Diddy's bust is a silver lining for muscle heads. Still totally sucks for Diddy.

At Elite Fitness Center (Video)

Exclusive Details

Ray Rice is clearly expecting to return to the NFL -- training every single day at an exclusive athletic facility in Connecticut ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The former Baltimore Ravens running back is a regular at the BlueStreak Sports Training Center in Stamford, CT ... and we're told he's been impressive with speed and footwork drills. 

We're told Rice has been at the center for the past "few months." 

Rice is eligible to play in the NFL again after serving his suspension for the domestic violence incident -- but the question now ... is there a team that will actually take a chance on Rice? 

Stay tuned ...

EXCLUSIVE

Hey ... you ... guy or girl with sorta-muscles -- STOP TAKING PICS OF YOURSELF IN THE FRICKIN' GYM ... 'cause it's pissing off Mr. Olympia.

With the gym-selfie craze going global, reigning body building champ Phil Heath says he CAN'T STAND when people stop their lift to shoot themselves in the middle of a workout. 

"It's pretty annoying ... they should be in there killing it, you know?!"

Check out the clip -- Heath says you should be concentrating on blowing up your muscles ... and not your stupid timeline. 

Listen to him ... he's bigger than you.

Kevin Hart

Crappy Workout

... Stops Pump to Dump

6/4/2015 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You know when people tell you to "push it" in the gym? 

Yeah, sometimes that's a bad idea. 

Chris Webber

I'M DEAD WEIGHT

... For Shaquille O'Neal

5/26/2015 11:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

More proof Shaq is really REALLY strong ... he just did a full set of seated rows at the gym using all of the weight on the machine .... PLUS AN ENTIRE CHRIS WEBBER

The two former NBA stars and current TNT employees hit the gym together in Cleveland ... where Shaq decided to show off a little bit. 

Check out the clip ... Shaq says he's going to lift C-Webb "instead of take shots" -- which could be a reference to the drama involving Webber and his old Fab Five teammates.  

FYI -- Webber has been going back and forth with Jalen Rose stemming from a rift over a documentary about their legendary college hoops days at Michigan. Maybe Shaq was suggesting they worked it out already. 

And if not ... it's still a pretty incredible feat of strength -- Chris reportedly weighs about 245 pounds.

Shawn Oakman's Insane Box Jump

... With 70 Pound Dumbbells!

5/19/2015 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Memba Shawn Oakman -- that GIANT mountain of a college football player who became an Internet meme last year??? 

Well, he's back ... hitting a 40" box jump WHILE HOLDING 70 POUND DUMBBELLS IN EACH HAND!!! 

TMZ Sports obtained footage of Baylor's famous 6'9" 280 pound defensive end getting in some hardcore strength training in Vegas -- and it's pretty impressive.  

Oakman hit up the exclusive Athletic Gaines training center on Tuesday -- and worked out with Travelle Gaines, who's trained some of the best athletes in the world ... including Reggie Bush, Andrew Luck, Marshawn Lynch and LeSean McCoy. 

We're told Oakman began the training session with light weights ... and moved up ... with Shawn capping out with the 70 pounds dumbbells.  

Oakman will be a senior at Baylor next year ... and some experts think he could be the #1 overall pick. 

Keep your eye on this dude.
