Ray Allen follows the Paleolithic diet, which involves eating like the caveman ancestors did: lean meats, wild-caught fish, vegetables, some fruit, nuts and seeds, little starch and no processed foods or sugar. Furthermore, he doesn’t drink alcohol.
Ray Allen’s new workout routine, following his ankle surgery in 2007, is designed to help build his core strength, condition his joints and strengthen his lower body. Every move is in a position simulating game play. To focus on his glutes, he uses jumping resistance bands. For balance he throws a medicine ball while standing on one foot. In addition, he has been known to follow the P90X workout routine.
Ray Allen starts each workout by launching a 40-footer from the left side behind the Heat bench. He then shoots free throws, mid-range shots and 3-pointers from the same spots around the arc that are used for the long-distance shootout during All-Star Weekend. When catching the ball in transition, he shoots 3-pointers. He likes to run off imaginary screens.
Before games, Ray Allen arrives at arenas about three and a half hours before games. He then conducts a 20-minute shooting session, while he is often the only player on the court.

Ray Allen Quotes
“When I’m on the floor, I’m not going to break down. I’m not going to be breathing heavy or panting. I’m either chasing somebody or they’re chasing me. But I can outlast them. When that happens, I’m going to make my move and get my shot off before they can stop me.”
