[ads1 id=”alignright”]Before Ronda Rousey entered the world of women’s Mixed Martial Arts, she had won a bronze medal in Judo in 2008 at the Beijing Summer Olumpics.
To this day, Ronda Rousey remains the undefeated Women’s Bantamweight Championship, and she recently flaunted her fit body in 2012, on the cover The Body Issue by ESPN.
Ronda had been considering joining the Coast Guard if MMA did not work out for her, but of course, it did, “beyond [her] wildest expectations.”
About her grueling and intense training schedule, she claims that throughout the year, she only rests about 2 or 3 weeks. Seeing her perfectly sculpted body, it should be obvious that she is working the rest of the time.
As for her typical workout, Ronda Rousey explains that for MMA, it becomes necessary to be at a wide range of techniques, such as grappling, Judo, Pilates, strength conditioning, technical striking, and wrestling.
Apparently, Ronda even trains on sand dune hills. Ronda has admitted that she changes her workout routine around based on how she is feeling at the moment, and she claims that this is the “coolest part” of her training.
According to Ronda Rousey, she is not on a “monotonous training schedule” and she claims that this is what distinguishes MMA from Judo. Apparently, she never feels foreboding about going to practice since every day turns out to be “cool and interesting” for her.
Ronda has even being asked if genetics played any role in the killer abs she now boasts, and she revealed that she got those abs after she joined MMA. Apparently, do so many work outs enabled all those “tiny muscles” to show up.
While she is obviously physically strong, but Ronda Rousey believes that being strong means not being fearful. MMA enthusiasts will be grateful that Ronda’s parents never pushed her to pursue all those typical careers, and so she ended up becoming an MMA champion with a body that she takes pride in.
