While Gritty was headed off to space, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and J.R. Smith continued to do some cardio work. They were all spotted last week by a fan who was driving around and saw the three biking around the city of Los Angeles.

Lastly, ever wonder where Arnold Schwarzenegger gets his motivation to work out? Well it turns out his pet donkey Lulu is his pump up buddy. The 72-year old Hollywood actor and icon shared this video on his Instagram of Lulu monitoring his at-home workout session.
