On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Lakers announced they will retire the No. 8 and No. 24 jerseys that legend Kobe Bryant wore during his tenure with the franchise. 

The Black Mamba is currently in China, but it appears he isn't just resting and relaxing. 

On Wednesday morning local time, Bryant shared an Instagram post of himself sitting in a gym with the following caption:

"Done at 6am #chinatimezone #4amclub #monstermamba." 

The five-time champion may not be working on an NBA comeback, but he seemingly doesn't intend to let himself go anytime soon.
