TRAINING: I usually get up and go for a run before fight team training. I'll train with my fight team and, depending on the day, I'll either do conditioning, lift weights, or do a calisthenics routine. After that, again, depending on the day, I'll go to work, teach kids, or help my Pops teach and participate in Bootcamps at DNA Fitness. If I have more in the tank then I’ll get a mini workout in - either weights or standup.
