Fighting for a living is a tough business. No one knows that better than Sean Sherk, who appears on the cover of the April 2007 issue of FLEX. Less than six months ago, Sherk found himself fighting for a UFC title for the second time in his eight-year mixed martial arts career. Bloodied, from an elbow to the right eye that opened up a gash that would later require stitches, and bruised from a torn rotator cuff and a torn biceps Sherk managed to find it in himself to gut out a unanimous decision over Kenny Florian at UFC 64 and win the lightweight title.

Sherk, nicknamed The Muscle Shark because of the 180 pounds of muscle he packs on his 5-foot-6 frame, attacks the weights religiously. In addition to his martial arts training and his cardiovascular work, hes in the gym six days a week, hitting each bodypart once each week. He credits that dedication to making a difference in the octagon.

The work ethic is a big, big attribute, Sherk says. A lot of people dont have the willpower to train six days a week, three times a day. That for me is my biggest attribute. Thats what actually shows when youre in the cage fighting. Im able to fight a lot harder because I train a lot harder. Im banking on the fact that my opponents at some point in time are going to get tired. And Im not.

For more with Sean Sherk, pick up the April issue of FLEX, on newsstands now.
Now he fights at 155 and he doesn't do any plyometric or complexes, just straight up "bodybuilding" workouts. At least that is what my roommate told me was in the magazine.

I'm going to try and read up on this to see what he does.

I think he's wasting his time. He could definitely manage and gear his workouts better.
Any thoughts.

My immediate thought is don't believe anything you read in Flex. It could be true but they've been known to "get creative" about these things.

Working out 6 days a week 3 times a day? That could mean a lot of things I guess. But if he's "banking on his opponents getting tired" then straight up bodybuilding workouts would make no sense and no doubt this guy knows it.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

Yeah I've heard the same thing.

I agree. I know that one time could just be a morning run. Second time could be MMA training. Third time could be weights.

I still want to see what to read the whole article just to see what was put in it.

Yeah. I'd be curious too. See if it looks like a Ronnie Coleman bicep routine

All kidding aside I'd love to see some down and dirty info on a variety of these guy's training schedules...with details. Have you seen anything like that?

No doubt some of them don't want to give away their "secrets". But it's unrealistic to think that giving someone your training will give them your success.

Here is one link that was from a UFC inside thingy. Like Franklin says in the vid. "It's only one example." So this could have been one of those "crazy change things up days" for the show.
I know there is a couple more.

Thanks for the vid I never did catch that. That's what I mean though. I've seen little training snapshots before but you'd be hard pressed to put together a complete picture. It's interesting that almost everything is a machine. Wouldn't have been my choice. I think though that circuits have become synonomous with machines.

me neither... Well I cant say that, I can see doing machines once in a blue moon to change it up.

Circuits and machines are becoming more and more linked. Well I know kettlebell and sandbags are going to be a staple in my training for circuits, it just makes sense. Combining legs, back and shoulders with a lot of core and grip work and they are relatively cheep pieces of equipment compared to machines.

Speaking of different pieces of equipment, I was actually looking into getting a tire, like the construction tires that you see in Strongmen competitions. That looks like a great workout. Only problem, I have no where to store it. I think it will be a house warming gift to myself when I cross that road.

Yeah you should be able to get an old tire for free.

The sandbags and kettleballs and of course free weights just make sense to me. Not to take anything away from Rich Franklin but if you have to deal in the ring with a live person who's dynamic and with their wieght always shifting why would you train with equipment that is artificially stable and with a fixed plane of motion? But of course we don't know what he alwasy does. I have seen a lot of those guys pictured on machines in general and it could have a lot to do with, dare I say it?...sponsers. But who knows.

Mike, Rich's trainer, does own the Powerstation gym (see the big sign) so it's at least as much an ad for the gym as anything else. All those various machines are the defintion to a good gym for most people.
