If you want to build the kind of power top UFC stars possess, you need to do workouts that force your muscles to work as explosively as possible. That's just what this workout from Richard Tidmarsh, the strength and conditioning coach who trains UFC light heavyweight prospect Jimi Manuwa, does.
Tidmarsh trains Manuwa at his Reach fitness facility in Clapham, London. To find out more about Reach and training with Tidmarsh, check out the Reach website r4reach.com.
Oh, and if you can't get hold of any battle ropes for the rope slams, use a medicine ball or bag instead.
