Alex Ovechkin would like you to know that he is indeed getting ready for this season by working hard. Though there's been a lot of vacation highlights shared by the Washington Capitals superstar on his very active Instagram account this summer, Ovechkin shared some of the highlights of his most recent workout.

The league’s leading goal scorer from a season ago may also be going for an inspirational angle with some of his latest videos. Here's Ovechkin jumping around with weights on his limbs in slow motion. And yes, of course it is set to “I Believe I Can Fly” because Ovi is gonna do whatever it is Ovi does…

So there’s that.

Also, Ovechkin took a light sprint around the track. His caption translates (via Google) to "Runs! Prepare))))" 

Tensions are a little bit high between the United States and Russia right now, but it seems both nations can agree that Ovechkin is an international treasure.
