The Workout of a Champion.

During workouts the champ likes to zip on LA Muscle Possessed. This is because his workouts can last up to 3 hours per session so he needs all the energy he can get to sustain the high performance he always puts in towards his training sessions.

Warm Up - Riyadh always starts off with a warm-up to warm up his muscles and help to prevent injury. This consists of;

  • Skipping - 10 Minutes
  • Step Machine - 10 Minutes
  • Pad Work - 10 Minutes
  • Punch Bag - 10 Minutes
  • Finish off with stretching

  • Shoulder Presses x 4 sets 12-15 sets
  • Barbell Curls x 4 sets 12-15 sets
  • Close-Grip Bench Press x 4 Sets 12-15 sets

When prepping for fights, Riyadh concentrates on high intensity training as it helps with his overall speed, endurance and agility. However when in off-season mode he likes to carry out heavier weights with lower repetitions for strength, power and size.

Riyadh performs this workout 5 times a week along with two cardio sessions daily consisting of 45 minutes each.

Post Training

After his workout is over, Riyadh ensures he takes a whey protein drink along with some BCAA's. He is a big fan of LA Muscle LA Whey Protein and Repo and tends to mix the formula together to give him the best results possible in terms of growth and recovery. He would then have a protein and carb meal around 30 minutes after his post-workout supplementation.

His next fight is at the end of the year Fighting in Baghdad which he will begin to prep for very soon. One things for sure he has a lot more in him, so watch this space!
