Hey now…it wasn’t THAT type of conversation!
(No “bow-chicka-wow-wow” moments here. Sorry. lol)
She stopped me because she’d seen me do a lot of “different” type of stuff in my workouts. Stuff you don’t see in the gym every day. You know, exercises like:
And cardio…well…tell me what fighter doesn’t want to have a bigger gas tank? Especially when several top-name guys have lost fights (and even championships) because they weren’t in shape.
Hell, Brock Lesnar won the UFC HW belt, due in large part to his strength and speed. UFC legend Matt Hughes dominated his way to several title defenses (and even tapping out Royce Gracie) because he was able to combine great wrestling and BJJ with superior strength, speed, and cardio.
But what do Mark Coleman, Tito Ortiz, and BJ Penn all have in common? Aside from being former champions, they all also lost huge fights in their career…
…simply because they gassed out.
Sometimes you can’t help it if the guy across the cage just has better skills than you. But you never have an excuse for not being in top condition.
She was starting to get the point and realize why MMA workouts like I do are important to fighters. But what about me personally? Am I a fighter? If not, why would I do this sort of training?
I told her that I’m not a fighter, nor do I compete. I do train and design workouts for a number of fighters, BJJers, and more. But I also like to help out the “regular guy”.
Because every “regular guy” wants to be in the same kinda shape that fighters are in. I know I do. I want to be strong and fast and have great cardio.
“Yeah, I guess…” she said. She wasn’t getting it.“Think of it like this,” I replied. “Does your husband watch MMA?”
“Sure – it’s on all the time.”
“Does he have the same physique the fighters he watches do?”
“No – not really.”
“Would you like it if he did?”
Her eyes lit up. The light bulb went off. Now, she got it.
I told her I’d be glad to give her one. In fact, I’d hook her up with the very workout I did that day – which just so happened to be a variation of the very first workout from my #1 program, “Working Class Fitness – Killer MMA Workouts”. But I upped the ante even further.
As it so happened, Bruno Carvalho – a pro MMA fighter I’ve designed several workouts for (he’s Top 10 at 185 in Europe, now competing at 170) emailed me earlier that morning after a workout with Team Golden Glory.
He’s getting ready for his next pro fight in Europe, and he wanted to update me on how much more power and cardio he had, and how “just wasn’t getting tired while sparring”.
What has he been doing? The very same workouts I’m talking about – the ones from “WCF – Killer MMA Workouts”.
Listen, I’d like to send you a copy of the workout he did, if that’s cool with you – then you can literally experience what it’s like to “train like a pro MMA fighter” the very next time you go to the gym.
