Shaquille O’Neal is living up to his “Superman” moniker … just days after the NBA legend had his hip replaced, he’s already back in the gym working out!
The Hall of Famer shared video of himself walking into a gym using a crutch on Sunday, before sitting down at a machine and pumping out some arm/chest exercises.
“Bout to get my game back,” Shaq wrote in the caption. “All you old dudes that hoop in @24hrfitness @lafitness @lifetimefitness I’m coming for yall.”
It’s pretty impressive when you realize the 51-year-old just went under the knife a week ago. As we previously reported, Shaq had been dealing with hip issues, an issue with his hip and is on the mend after successful surgery.
Shaq initially caused a bit of a panic when he shared a photo of him lying in a hospital bed, so fans will be happy to see him working out.
It’s unclear exactly when The Big Fella will return to NBA on TNT gig, though on his “The Big Podcast With Shaq” he said he planned to return by April 16.

The 4-time NBA champ also said he’s going on a diet to lose weight … and get an 8-pack.
And, by the look of it, he’s off to a great start!
