They entered the ring to rap, rock, old-school hip-hop, reggae, and even country-and-western, but the one thing every fighter at Saturday’s UFC 98 event had in common was a powerful athletic physique built from metabolic resistance training.
These modern-day warriors knew better than to do bodybuilding, because those workouts just take too long and leave you puffed up, slow, and inflexible.
That’s not how modern man should be – or look.
Instead, metabolic resistance training was the answer to the needs of these gladiators.
Circuit style lifting, bodyweight exercises, a no-quit attitude and total body movements made these men into the toughest athletes in professional sports today.
But here’s the thing…they showed a training video of Lyoto Machida, the new light heavyweight champion, doing a workout of smith machine squats and dumbbell hammer curls.
Frankly, I think both of those exercises are a waste of his time and probably don’t add anything to his vicious knockout power. Instead, I bet he gets more out of bodyweight circuit strength and endurance training.
When I work with martial artists – and almost any other type of athlete – we stick to the basic weightlifting exercises and spend more time on bodyweight exercises.
For example, here’s the perfect metabolic resistance training bodyweight circuit that will not only improve your physical strength and endurance for any sport, but it will also give you a killer beach body that will make you stand out in the crowd this summer.
If you want to get lean, build that V-shaped upper body, and essentially have the most bad-assed cover model body with the athletic skills to back it up, you can’t get better than this program.
– Go through the circuit 3-4 times.
– Rest 1-2 minutes at the end of each circuit.
– Rest as little as possible between exercises within the circuit.
1) Prisoner Squat – 20 reps
2) Close-grip Pushup – 15 reps
3) 1-Leg Squat – 8 reps per side
4) Pull-up – 1 rep short of failure
5) Bulgarian Split Squat – 20 reps per side
6) Spiderman Pushup – 12 reps per side
7) Bodyweight Row – 15 reps
As you get better and stronger, you can add resistance by wearing a weighted vest.
But if you’re not ready to give up all weights, but you want to do powerful circuits and supersets that combine my advanced bodyweight exercises with dumbbell exercises (that you can still do at home), check out my Hard-Core Turbulence Training Fat Burning workout programs here:
