Aug. 22 (UPI) -- LeBron James recently went crazy during a workout, repeatedly running in circles and dunking on both ends of a basketball court.

James posted a video of the training session on Tuesday.

"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'-Ali #striveforgreatness #savagemode #WorkTilItHurtsandBeyond," James wrote on Instagram.

The workout began with James on the baseline. He ran the full length of the court before receiving a pass and going in for a dunk. But James didn't stop after making the shot. He continued his stride under the basket and ran at the other hoop. He then caught another pass and dunked that ball. James repeated the process multiple times before finally stopping. He took a short rest while lifting his 6-foot-8, 250-pound frame up on the rim.

James posted a photo on Monday from the dinner table. The picture included Drake and several of his friends. The Cleveland Cavaliers star has also been posting workout pictures and videos on his social media feeds constantly since losing to the Golden State Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals. One of his first workout photos after the loss was posted on the same day as the Warriors' championship parade.

The four-time NBA MVP is entering his 15th season. James, 32, earned more than $86 million last season in salary and endorsements last year, the second-highest amount by any athlete.

"King James" recently met up with New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant and several other NBA players for a pickup basketball game in New York.
