Randy Couture's Grappling Circuit Workout Routine Video
here's a video link i thought i would share. it consists of bent over rows, standing up rows, military press, good mornings, side squats, power ups and squats, and romanian dead lifts (5 sets of 8 reps with a minute rest between each set). i usually start doing this workout a month before a tournament 3 to 4 times a week. its a killer workout that will increase your muscle endurance and explosiveness. i suggest having a workout partner to help you get through the workout and motivate you because you'll want to quit by the 4th set. don't try to be a hero, start off with low weights first 8)

Yeah this workout rocks. I did it for about a year with Just 25lb dumbbells. It helped my grappling game and my wife said she liked what she saw :D
nice, i think i saw that on UFC All Access
One of my favorite circuits.
I also do a variation with a 45lb olympic plate that substitues "around the worlds" for the upright rows and adds a set of curls and front raises to the routine.
Great workout, I impiment this circuit into my training about 2 months before every fight.
I started doing this exercise a while back and made two of my lifting partners puke, it's a tremendous exercise and at the end you can throw in dumbbell curls and pushups to make it a COMPLETE body workout...make no mistake...if you dont feel like tossing your cookies by the 3rd set, you're not doing it hard enough.
that looks killer.
good one :D
Yes...! I've been doing this workout for about 2 months now. I use the 25lb plates like he showed. I first started off with only being able to do 3 rounds. I would completed 1 round all the way through, second round I would have to pause and the 3rd round same as the second, with being totally spent after the 3rd round. Now after about two months doing twice a week and currently doing them. I can blast through rounds 1 and 2 with a slight pause in the the 3 rd and can now finish the the 4th and I feel that I should be able to finish the 5th by next week.
I do them at good pace as well and can totally see my strength and endurance skyrocket. It's no joke man. I feel like so healthy afterwards.
I recommend implementing them in to your workout!
I do the Grappling Circuit once a week as one of my 5 workouts I do each week. Does anyone know how many calories are burned?
Awesome ! Thanks for a video , it`s really what I was looking for !!
