INSTAGRAM: Ryan Kelly Training MMA In Off-Season

Ryan Kelly had an extremely promising rookie year averaging about eight points and four rebounds in 22 minutes per game. But Kelly knows he has a lot of work to do to turn that promise into production on the floor.

Kelly has been working hard in the off-season and on his Instagram page, he posted videos of himself in the gym — the MMA gym.

The videos contain Kelly throwing some punching combinations with a little foot work thrown in. There is also one of Kelly doing toe-touches as his trainer slams his abs with punching mitts.

MMA is a great way to get in top physical condition and it looks as if Kelly will have no excuses for being in the best shape possible by the time training camp rolls around.

After missing most of camp last season due to recovery from an injury, Kelly is looking to make an impact from day one. He will have his work cut out for him as the Lakers are pretty deep in the frontcourt. But Kelly looks to be up for the challenge.
