Fighter's Fat-Loss Workout


You don't have to make a living in the ring to look like a fighter outside of one. The lean, chiseled, and muscular physique of some of the world's toughest athletes are built with short, intense bouts in the gym. Try this on for size and you'll be in fighting condition in no time.

How to do this Workout

Perform this workout three days a week, resting at least a day between each session. So you might perform these exercises on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Perform the entire workout as straight sets. That is, do all sets of one exercise before moving on to the next. Choose a weight that allows you to hit the maximum rep range. If you go above it, then increase how much weight you use.

Circuit : Do 1 set of each exercise in a group consecutively, without rests in between. Once  these exercises have been completed, repeat the circuit again - doing 1 set of each with no rests in between. Continue until prescribed number of total sets are performed

Strength : Complete all sets of an exercise at the same time with rests in between. Then move to the next exercise.

Superset : Two moves done consecutively (like a circuit) with no rests in between.
