Not One Weight Lifted
“Typically I have two to three workouts a day, and they could include wrestling, striking, boxing, running up sand dunes, grappling, strength and conditioning, judo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, swimming. And I actually don’t lift any weights at all. Every muscle people see on my body is for a task. Whenever I want to be able to do a certain move or action, I put the work in until I can. And to be honest, I’ve never enjoyed weightlifting because there’s no problem solving. With fighting I’m solving a problem, so I don’t think about being tired.”
In a new interview with Fighter Only, UFC bantamweight champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey talked about her day-to-day routine, and why she doesn’t lift weights.
