10 Most Unorthodox NBA Workouts

Dirk Nowitzki has made an NBA career out of being unorthodox, which is reflected in his training regimen under the tutelage of former German Olympian and his mentor since childhood Holger Geschwindner.

“Besides all the shooting, it’s hard to explain the types of things he does—because they are so unorthodox,” said Mavericks scout Reggie Johnson. “It’s one of those things you have to see, but it’s like he’s working on balance, leg strength and shooting all in one motion. His personal coach from Germany thinks outside the box with the drills. Some drills with the ball, some without. He has a routine.”
