A workout like this would go perfect with a High protein diet. I recommend the 'shredded chef' by Michael Matthews. Check it out

this is extreme!
no wonder Brock did so well even tho his striking and BJJ was terrible!
the guy is an animal.
Has any one tried modifying this?
think i might do 15 mins cardio before the weight sessions with my two weekly mma sessions.(maybe scale the sets back one also)
