A lot of fighters spend their time at the gym on a treadmill or out for a jog, but they’re not getting any stronger or fitter unless they are lifting weights which will build and strengthen up their muscles. They will never be able to achieve their full fitness potential without including strength and conditioning in their workouts. You have to be strong, quick, and agile with a high amount of endurance. Let’s not forget one of the other main components; mental strength. This is where my mantra comes in, “life is hard, we build strong people.” By completing the planned workouts which are meant to push you, you are not only building mental strength in the gym but also in the real world which will help you face your challenges in your day-to-day life.
