To say that Carter “rests” to maintain good health would be misleading. Carter arrives to the arena before the rest of his teammates to get ready. “I can’t be a last minute guy to prepare,” he says. After games, he gets another workout in instead of going home right away. Sometimes, he works out his upper or lower body exclusively. It can be cardio, weights, or a combination of both. “I just keep the core — keep the body tight and just treat my body like a well-oiled machine,” Carter says.
Mike Conley has picked up some of those habits from Carter. Before Carter arrived in Memphis in 2014, Conley simply rested and laid down after games. Now, he copies some of Carter’s tricks. “Lift, to work on your legs, to do treatment, massages, all those things,” Conley says. Conley also cut sugar out of his diet because of Carter. “I’m eating a lot of peanuts and stuff instead,” Conley says. “Maybe a little raisins here and there.”
