Ovechkin shows off a new workout routine
We may be in the dog days of summer, but NHL players are right in the thick of their off-season workout regimens. Yesterday, Alexander Ovechkin took to Twitter to show off one of his sessions, which appears to involve a personal trainer, a tennis court, some sort of giant rubber band, and possibly a screen door.
Good day on the court!! Nothing gonna hold me back this year!!!hahaha https://t.co/ZBqRgLgZIU— Alex Ovechkin (@ovi8) August 1, 2013
The reigning NHL MVP uses three exclamation points when describing his mindset going into a new season, so look for him to have a big year for Washington Capitals. No word on whether the setting was influenced by Ovechkin's fiancee, Maria Kirilenko, currently ranked 12th in the WTA singles rankings.
