Kawhi Leonard has had himself quite the playoff run with the Toronto Raptors so far. With just one more win standing between Leonard and his second NBA Finals trophy, it's important to consider just how much work the Raptors' superstar puts into his strength and conditioning to make him the machine that is averaging over 30 points per game in the playoffs.

Ka-why would anyone want to put themselves through such an arduous workout the way Leonard does? The fact that a gym machine has its own special designation ("The Yo-Yo") makes it pretty clear that its infamously difficult. All that hard work seems to be paying off though, as Kawhi is making these playoffs look like a cakewalk.

If Kawhi could end the run of an NBA dynasty as a relative unknown on the Spurs, there's no reason why he can't do the same in Toronto. And with this grueling workout plan, it's easy to see why Leonard never appears to be out of gas on the court.

He isn't like some players, who enjoy showing off their workout routines via social media, which Leonard doesn't even use, but if one thing is clear it's that The Klaw puts in as much hours at the gym as anybody.
