What does it take to train like a top mixed martial arts athlete? For UFC fighter Paige VanZant, a regular daily session with Team Alpha Male cohorts at her gym in Sacramento, CA, lasts at least two hours. Each workout is a mix of dynamic warmups, plyometrics, several rounds of shadowboxing and kickboxing, and technique work, strength moves, and stretching. “We change things up a lot, but there’s always a challenge,” says UFC fighter and Team Alpha Male coach Urijah Faber.

We asked VanZant to share her favorite drills and fighting moves that keep her in top shape. Incorporate elements of them into your existing program, or do the full UFC-inspired routine to help you gain stamina, speed, power, and conditioning in one total-body workout you’ll love.  See the full workout in our November/December issue, on newsstands now!
