Dana White's Workout
How the UFC President keeps his edge
Before preparing for our cover shoot, White weighed 217 pounds. By cycling his carb intake and intensifying his workouts, he dropped over 20 pounds in four weeks, weighing in at 196 on the day of the shoot. "I'm glad Men's Fitness came along," he says. "I need a reason to work out. I've been boxing my whole life, so I get bored with it sometimes. When I get bored of boxing, I'll get more into lifting weights. We're trying to get my bench to 315 now."
Skips laterally around a boxing ring for a few minutes to warm up.
Throws punch combinations on focus mitts for four to six rounds.
White runs on the treadmill.
White focuses on chest, shoulders, and triceps one day, then back, legs, and biceps another, alternating heavy and light days. "Chest day takes a long time," he says. "We're big into fuckin' benching." [Laughs].
