I could understand saying lose 30 pounds get an incentive, but 8 pounds and make 600k more, holy shit.

Thats kind of looking at it in reverse.

Basically, you give the guy a contract for X, but you don't pay them X unless they meet certain conditions. Each condition earns a chunk back.

Sometimes its also done that way specifically because if they don't, then they are violating some part of their contract. The major sports have a lot of weird things written in their CBA's and what the unions allow, in terms of player discipline, or fining someone, filing grievances, etc.
