Upshaw: I Lost Weight to Prove Doubters Wrong

“In Summer League I didn’t feel like myself, and I just didn’t feel as fluid as I usually feel,” (Los Angeles Lakers Robert) Upshaw said. “When I got back to San Diego where I was training, I put an emphasis on being faster, quicker and slimmer.”

Upshaw dropped 20 pounds between Summer League and his signing with the Lakers, reshaping his body beginning with 7 a.m. cardio.“I would run for an hour and then I would have a basketball workout and then a strength-and-conditioning workout,” he said. “And then I would get shots up at night. I stayed consistent with that for a month and a half, every day, six days a week.”

“The real reason I (lost weight) was because I felt like I had something to prove,” Upshaw said. “There’s been a lot of talk about the person I used to be and the person that I am. I just want to show everybody that I know who I am and who I can be as a person in this community and with this basketball team.
