Six months. That’s the timetable for Kobe Bryant’s current training regiment.
Guess who is back from France and back in the gym? Kobe has been cleared to go. http://t.co/RFVaxe5r2x

Now that Kobe Bryant is cleared, he can stress his body and push his limits. We all know who Kobe Bryant is, in terms of how hard he works in the offseason. He did a 666-training program with Tim Grover during the first 6 years in the league. Every year, there has been some sort of adjustment, whether it’s gaining massive upper body strength, staying especially trim to retain quickness, or adding to a lower post base to maintain post position.
This time it’s different. He’s recovering from injury and in a sense, trying to explore all of those options at once, trying to see what he can do best on the basketball floor.
There are skeptics out there. ACL injuries are difficult to recover from fully. He’s 35 years old. But, the way that Bryant may see it, his body has essentially taken a full year off with a few games in-between. Everything has been about healing and recuperation.
We just hope his body can keep up with what his mind wants. He doesn’t know much else, other than to keep pushing.
We can’t wait to see how he plays in his first game back.
