Alex Ovechkin is one of the greatest goal scorers of all time. He makes $10 million per season and is one of the highest paid players in the game. What’s the Russian machine’s secret to success?
Beyond apparently “poot[ing] beer and Russian vodka” in his health drinks, Ovechkin runs. Like in a forest. Where there are Russian bears and stuff.
“Today’s a holiday. Athlete Day!” Ovechkin said. “Happy Athlete Day, everyone! Goose, Pasha, everyone. Go work out!”
Ovechkin is wearing Beats wireless headphones and a Nike workout shirt with his personal logo on it.
Ovechkin’s personal trainer, Pavel, posted a video as well with a similar message.

“Today’s a holiday: Athlete Day. I wish everyone a good one. Go work out!” Pavel said.
This concludes a very active week for Ovechkin as he steps up his training for next season. Ovechkin was documented running at a track and working out at a cross fit gym. He also, uh, worked out with exercise balls.
