Karl Anthony Malone is a retired American professional basketball player famous for playing as a power forward. He was born on July 24, 1963 in Summerfield, Louisiana. He went to Louisiana Tech University to attend college despite being recruited by the University of Arkansas basketball coach Eddie Sutton. In his second year, he joined the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs basketball team.
It was in the year 1985 when he was drafted by the NBA and finished the 13th overall pick and was chosen by the Utah Jazz. All throughout his career, he was able to make his name prominent in the NBA and was considered as one of the legendary NBA stars in the world.
During his interview with Muscle and Fitness, Karl shared that weight training was always the key towards his efficient playing in the NBA while he was still very active in the sport. He said, “I will tell you and anyone who cares to know that my conditioning in the off-season was what allowed me to play so many games, because I didn’t let my body get out of shape. It was harder than my in-season training. I knew once the season started, all I had to do was maintain. If I didn’t lift weights, I don’t think I would’ve had the career I had. Matter of fact, I know it. When you lift weights at a high level with the little aches and pains, you’re just going to say, ‘It’s not tougher than that iron.'” Meanwhile, Karl is also noted to be a fan of Yoga as well as cross training.
