Allen Iverson was known for writing his own rules during his Hall of Fame-worthy stint in the NBA.

Naturally, his workout regimen was no exception. 

Whereas most players incorporate lifting weights into their fitness routine, Iverson simply voted "no" on that option. 

Basketball journalist Derek Bodner revealed that during Iverson's Hall of Fame acceptance speech, Iverson revealed he didn't bother with weightlifting because "that s--t was too heavy."

Seems like a valid reason, right?
