The Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t just sitting around waiting for their next opponent in the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

The Cavs made quick work in the first round by sweeping out the Indiana Pacers in just four games, but just because they have some time off, it doesn’t mean they’re not working. In fact, LeBron James and company are spending their time crushing workouts in the gym.

After pushing through a grueling and dramatic seven-game series last year to win the NBA title over the Golden State Warriors, the Cavs are working even harder as they face a potential third consecutive championship battle against Steph Curry and company.

James has been leading the team through intense workout sessions in Cleveland, with players like Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert, Kyle Korver, Deron Williams, Richard Jefferson, Derrick Williams, and J.R. Smith all joining in.

Here’s a look at what the Cavs have been up to:

1-5. LeBron gets in a cable workout, Irving does dumbbell stepups, Love does some med ball throws, Thompson gets in a rope workout, and Shumpert does seated leg curls:
