Working out can be difficult, which is why it helps to have an uber-passionate trainer by your side. On this episode of The Donnelly Show, Made Man Deputy Editor Shawn Donnelly got exactly that when he met with Steve Hess, the longtime strength and conditioning coach of the Denver Nuggets (and widely considered the most entertaining strength coach in the NBA).

Hess, who joined Donnelly on behalf of MET-Rx, a sports nutrition company, had plenty of killer training tips that left Donnelly feeling the burn and sweating like Dikembe Mutombo in a sauna. Check out the video above, and if you would like to see Hess’s entire workout with Donnelly, watch the video below as well!
