Bar Malik, the team's strength coach, talks nutrition, regeneration, and more.
Mubarak “Bar” Malik brings a wealth of knowledge to his position as the director of performance for the New York Knicks. After graduating from West Chester University with a BS in exercise and movement science and getting his MS in movement science, Malik worked on training programs for baseball players and then military special ops forces. Now in his fourth year with the Knicks, he is responsible for designing and overseeing the players' strength and conditioning workouts. While his path to working with NBA players wasn’t linear, it’s precisely this unique background that Malik credits for his success. We spoke with him about pro basketball, regeneration tips, and more.
