From the first time he stepped into the wrestling ring, until he made the much publicized crossover to the world of Mixed Martial Arts; Brock Lesnar has been larger than life.  He shocked the MMA world by beating some of the best heavyweight fighters they had to offer. A huge part of Brock’s success has been his unique combination of strength and explosiveness. How often have you watched Brock fight and thought to yourself; how does a guy that big move like that? Few MMA fighters are as massive and muscular, while still remaining flexible and agile, as Brock. Watching such a large guy move so quickly always intrested me.  So I started looking into what the Brock Lesnar workout consisted of.  How exactly does he train to build and maintain his massive amount of muscle mass?  How does he use his MMA training to condition his body, and win in the octagon?

Unfortunately, Brock won’t be stepping back in the octagon until sometime next year because of surgery.  I am sure that once he is cleared by doctors he will be back at DeathCluth killing it.

Obviously Brock’s training addresses all area of conditioning.  And despite the fact that Lesnar is a heavyweight, that doesn’t mean that cardio is neglected.  In fact, he probably has to focus on it more than smaller fighters do to keep himself in shape.  Carrying that much muscle mass at such a low bodyfat percentage is no easy task.  Cardio is of course a big part of his conditioning.  Here is an example of some of Brock’s conditioning work.
