The Hurricane is a sprint workout used by UFC star Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis. It will get your heart rate to max capacity before you transition to a bodyweight workout. The idea is to begin with a sprint, then do difficult loaded and body-weight moves after you’ve got your heart rate up.

It mimics a fight in that you can begin with a high-endurance stand-up, then end up grappling on the ground after running around the cage. You have to be ready for close combat even after you’re gassed from a stand-up flurry. As you can see, the Hurricane allows for a lot of substitution and variation, depending on what kind of fight you expect or how badly you need to work on your endurance.
A training activity must be at least equal in length to the event you’re training for. “If I’m prepping for a 25-minute fight, this is what we’ll use,” Pettis says.
A fighter’s prep must focus on technique. “You can’t just do cardio and prepare for a fight,” Pettis says. “The only way you can get ready to do grappling, wrestling, and striking is by doing it.”
