Kevin Love is down 25-pounds after refocusing on strength and conditioning in the offseason.

A busy workout schedule has kept Love in the gym and away from the kitchen. As a result, the big man has had to outsource his cooking duties in order to stay active and stay fed.

A So-Cal kid at heart, it's no surprise that Love would make his way onto a yoga mat, but the work focuses on the forward's lateral movement and improving an already potent drop step.

Love 2.0 rounds it all off with a core-specific weightlifting regimen.

And just in case you missed it, or perhaps you go to bed before 3 a.m., Love's trainer is none other than celebrity fitness personality and infomercial maven, Gunnar Peterson.

Makes sense he would work with Minnesota athletes, having the most Nordic name in the business.
