Being the absolute best!!

If you're a MMA fan, you might have heard that UFC Heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar, stated that he will back to defend his title this summer. Whether you like him or not, you have to admit that he is a phenomenal athlete. It makes you wonder what his workouts must be like. I found a couple of clips from when he was still in the sports entertainment biz with the WWE several years ago. Though I'm sure you may question the "reality" of sports entertainment, you cannot question the great athleticism that is required of these "wrestlers" to do what they do night-in, night-out.

I was pleasantly surprised to find these two clips hyping up a big match-up between Brock Lesnar and current movie star, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. When talking about their individual workout routines, they both emphasized movements that didn't involve any high tech gadgets or the latest workout fad at all. What they emphasized in their workouts were back-to-the-basics, good old-fashioned hard work. The Rock utilizes olympic barbell training, box jumping, and stadium stair running. Brock emphasizes bodyweight training, log lifting, and punching bag work.

I think a wrestler-turned sports entertainer-turned UFC Heavyweight Champion and a football player-turned sports entertainer-turned top movie star actor started their humble beginnings with underground strength and still use it to this day. Seems like these two warriors could make a home at any underground gym. Check it out and enjoy!
