Mike Tyson has always been an inspiration to me for not only his skill in the ring, but for the work he put in outside the ring. His dedication and discipline to perfecting his craft has inspired me throughout the years. Maybe he can do the same for someone else, so here is his daily workout which he did 6 days a week! Remember to take at least one if not two days to let your body rest!
4am: get up and go for a 3 mile jog
6am: come back home shower and go back to bed
10am wake up: eat oatmeal
12pm: do ring work (10 rounds of sparring)
2pm: have another meal (steak and pasta with fruit juice drink)
3pm: more ring work and 60 mins on the exercise bike (again working those huge legs for endurance)
5pm: 2000 sit-ups; 500-800 dips; 500 press-ups; 500 shrugs with a 30kg barbell and 10 mins of neck exercises
7pm: steak and pasta meal again with fruit juice
8pm: another 30 minutes on the exercise bike then watch TV and then go to bed.
jogging in the morning, Tyson did a lot of stretching followed by 10 jumps
onto boxes and 10 bursts of sprints, then he went jogging. At 12pm he
sparred. At 3pm he focused on mitt work and heavy bag work inside the
ring. He warmed up for his ring work with light exercises such as
skipping, shadow boxing or speed ball. At 5pm Tyson did 10 quick
circuits, each circuit consisting of: 200 sit-ups, then 25-40 dips, then
50 press-ups, then 25-40 dips, then 50 shrugs, followed by 10 mins of
neck work on the floor. Tyson said that the shrugs is what built his
shoulders up to help him punch given his short arms.
No matter how lazy Im feeling, this video always makes me want to get up and train!
