Work hard? Hot tub hard.
That was Ezekiel Elliott's mentality during his suspension/vacation in Mexico.
TMZ Sports obtained footage of Zeke chillaxin' with friends at the Diamante Resort in Cabo San Lucas.
The video was shot on December 15 -- but we're told Elliott was a regular at the hot tub during his stay in Mexico.
Zeke's camp has said the Dallas Cowboys star was hardcore training in Cabo during his 6-week suspension. He came back looking leaner.
Our sources say in addition to working out, he would party -- with one witness saying he was spotted multiple days popping bottles of expensive champagne with lady friends at the resort.
Of course, Zeke has adamantly denied physically attacking his ex-girlfriend -- so, if he's not trying to repent, might as well enjoy the trip ... right?
