Kevin Garnett stayed in impeccable shape throughout his 21-year NBA career, remaining an elite defender until the end. Apparently, Beyoncé was one of the reasons why.

In an appearance last week on Bill Simmons’ podcast, Clippers guard J.J. Redick said Garnett told him he modeled his work-out routine after the pop icon. Garnett said singing and dancing at the same time, just like Queen Bey herself, would help him keep his energy up for the entire game.

“One time I saw her working out, and she was doing her dances and she was singing while she was doing her dancing,” Garnett said to Redick. “So then I’m thinking to myself, ‘Maybe I should run and sing at the same time.’ So in the offseason, I would go to Malibu and I would go down to the beach, and when I run on the beach I would be like ‘Lalala lalala lalala,’ while I’m running. So then, when I get on the court and I’m getting back on defense and I’m talking on defense, I don’t get tired.”

Now that Garnett has joined the Clippers as a consultant, perhaps he’ll share his Beyoncé-inspired training methods with even more players. Advice like that is too good to keep to yourself.
