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.

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 ...

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

Crappy Workout

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.

Mama June

I Can't Stomach My Stomach ...

I'm Getting a Lap-Band

5/17/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0515-mama-june-lap-band-getty-01Mama June is joining a band ... in her lap.

The 'Honey Boo Boo' matriarch is so inspired by her recent 45 lb. weight loss, she's gunning to lose another 50, with the help of the Lap-Band.

We did the math ... she currently weighs in at 276 lbs., and if she achieves her gastric goal she'll go down to a svelte 226. 

June made the decision to go under the knife because she's plateaued with her trainer and her relatively healthy diet.  

She'll have the surgery this summer, which means she'll just miss bikini season.

Bravo's Greg Plitt Sued

I Know You're Dead, Bro

But About that $50k ...

4/26/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Greg Plitt Owes Money After DeathBravo fitness star Greg Plitt allegedly made a handshake deal with a filmmaker to create his popular fitness show, but never paid the guy ... who's now going after Greg's estate to get the cash.

According to docs ... filmmaker Devin Coury says he and Plitt had an oral contract for his online "Raw Series" back in 2009. Coury says he shot the footage for the program, and was owed $50,000 for his services.

Of course, Plitt died last year when he was hit by a train -- but Coury says he never got a dime of the 50 large. In the docs, Coury says he saw Plitt one last time in 2013, and got his word he would make things right ... but that never happened.

As for proof there was really a deal -- Coury's submitted invoices he sent to Greg.  

Coury admits trying to get the money from his dead friend's estate is a "fragile situation" -- but he's pressing forward with his claim.
