Kevin Durant, one of the greatest American basketball players, is known both for his game and for his height. This 6’9’’ heavy built guy naturally gives a tough competition to the opposite team.  But it’s not just his height that gives him an edge; he trains vigorously for hours! His trainer, Dwight Daub has guided him through an intense workout regime.

Besides these classic exercise routine, Kevin also likes to go one step ahead and challenges himself to another extent. He runs on sand, sprinting and calls this running drill as suicide. It requires twice the effort and energy than running on the normal ground. He is accompanied by his friend Russell Westbrook sometimes. He believes this rough sand training is a great way to build strength, balance, and pace. The uneven surface of the sand helps him activate his body muscles, which is otherwise not possible through regular exercise.

Kevin Durant’s Diet Plan

According to Kevin eating regularly and eating healthy food rich in nutrients is the key to fitness. As an athlete, he says, you should never miss a meal as strength is what you will need. In fact, he even likes to add small healthy meals in between the major meals. He’d eat fruits and salad or drink some fresh juices or his favourite, smoothies. But he surely takes good care of what he is feeding to his body, and we should all be doing that too.

Here’s his day’s meal plan –


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 whole egg omelette with spinach and tomato toppings
  • A Bowl of fresh fruit
  • Toast (Gluten-free).

Late Morning Snack

Fruit and Triple berry acai smoothie


  • Grilled Salmon with lemon and cucumber yoghurt dressing
  • Brown rice pilaf
  • Bautéed spinach (sautéd with coconut water first)


  • Grilled chicken
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Fruit smoothie
