VIDEO: Check out how superstar hoops recruits Ben Simmons and Antonio Blakeney are training for life at LSU

Top overall basketball recruit Ben Simmons and fellow superstar prep player Antonio Blakeney have yet to alight on Baton Rouge, but they’ve already been handed a terrific nickname: The Killer B’s. As it turns out, the future teammates and close friends are already working out together in preparation for their Louisiana future, and Home Team Hoops was given access to their two-man workout.

The duo is doing plenty of sprint work, as well as some serious free weight and cable training, not to mention the good old agility work that you see from every top athlete, seemingly regardless of sport.

Oh, and core, core, core. As if there was any doubt.

The 16-minute video showcases extensive detail on each and every move that Simmons and Blakeney are using, both in the gym and on the court when they eventually migrate there. Combined with running interviews with both top prospects, the video is a pretty enthralling look at what prospects do when they’re finally on their own, away from so many of the structured prep and travel programs they have been involved with for years.
