Brock Lesnar Nutrition and Workouts

Updated on September 12, 2017

Brock Lesnar is a phenomenon of a man and an athlete. Lesnar weighs a lean 265 lbs and yet possesses extreme speed, agility and athleticism. How a man carrying so much muscle mass can maintain such high levels of athleticism speaks volumes for the way he trains and looks after himself.

Brock has never been one to shy away from hard work after growing up on a farm in Webster, South Dakota. He takes this mentality and tenacity into his workouts and nutrition and trains like a beast.

Brock Lesnar Workouts

For Brock Lesnar’s workouts the goal is to maintain his size and strength as it is a major advantage for him in the Octagon. But at the same time needs to train his speed, power and athleticism. These attributes are very important for an MMA fighter and he cannot rely on his size and strength alone.

Brock trains twice a day four times a week. He focuses on his fighting and grappling skills in the morning sessions and his cardio and strength in the afternoon sessions.

Below are an example of strength and conditioning workouts used by Brock Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar has always said he is a carnivore and eats what he kills. He is a big fan of hunting and follows a caveman diet that is very high in protein.

In 2009 Brock was diagnosed with diverticulitis. This led him to serious change his dietary habits. He has had to start eating more greens in his diet for fibre which he lacked before.
