Con Demetriou’s MMA Conditioning Workout

August 25, 2011

We hear a lot of trash talk these days about about bodybuilders being too bulky for their own good. And while we can all collectively laugh at the thought of Ronnie Coleman running wind sprints, there are plenty of competitors carrying crazy muscle who can seriously move.

To the detractors, we present IFBB Con Demetriou, two weeks out from the 2011 Dallas Europa and killing an MMA-style conditioning workout at the legendary Big John McCarthy Fighting Center in Valencia, California.

Yes, those are legs-free rope climbs. While carb-depleted. Not too shabby for a Super Heavyweight Mr. Australia winner who walks around off-season at weights of up to 265.
