Workout Of The Week: The All-American

Saturday night, Chris “The All-American” Weidman, showed why he is one of the best middleweights in the division. Weidman co- headlined Saturdays first ever event at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in his hometown of Long Island, New York.

After losing 3 straight fights, Weidman battled back after a big knockdown in the first round. The All- American secured a nasty head and arm submission win over Kevin Gastelum in the third round.

While watching the fight, I did some research into his current and previous strength and conditioning programs. I started writing my own routine for Weidman using some of his old programs, his newer programs, and some of my own, creating the All- American workout of the week.

Tabata Finisher (10 rounds. 20sec ON 10sec OFF = 5min):
Tug Of War: Take a rope and tie a KB or two to the end if it. Go to the other end and get into a wide stance pushup position. Pull the rope towards you while alternating arms until the KB end reaches you, then run it back to the start and repeat.
