This summer, Red Bull paired up Blake Griffin with athletes in other sports to give him some intense cross-training and captured it on camera. In the first of a three-part series called “The Crossover,” Griffin meets Timothy “Timbo” Gonzalez, a handball legend from the Bronx, New York. In Griffin’s words:

I want a long and healthy career. I want to be quicker, stronger, and I want to be a leader. I know that if I am going to take myself to where I want to go as an athlete and a person, I have to look at all my training options. The usual practice just isn’t enough—I want more of an edge over my opponents. Cross-training is so important because I can improve myself and have a lower impact on my body.
