Rory MacDonald workout routine? He's really strong
 
Hi,

I was wondering if anybody had an idea of Rory MacDonald's workout rountine? I ask because he is really strong. Stronger than most males in their late 20's, and he's only 23. He seems to overpower almost everybody, not just with technique, but with physical strength.

What is this specimen's secret? Is he lifting weights? Kettlebells? Or hardcore bodyweight stuff?

In before 'Rory is taking steroids'.

^Let me do the honors...

First I'd recommend some stanozolol and throw some HGH in there. If you wanna get rid of the backne cortisol is just the thing.

P.S. To the OP, itīs perfectly normal to be stronger in the early 20's than in the late 20's if you work out since a young age.

Are you saying that because Rory's been working out since he was young (something we don't actually know) it's normal for him to be that strong at his age? I would imagine your strength peaks by your mid 30's. Guys who are 27 or so are really strong compared to when they are younger, I think.

Rory's super strong, I just want to know if he works out with weights or if it's purely bodyweight and stuff.

You pretty much have to use weights to get that strong. But yea the steroids don't hurt.

Rory was weak as **** when he was a lightweight.

They didn't call him "The Waterboy" for no reason.

I knew dudes in my HS that were stronger than this dude in HS and they certainly aren't specimens like he is. And they play football in college.

I would say Rory looking strong is due to him training *smarter not harder* with some of the best in the business at cultivating wrestling strength.

GSP and Rory manhandle ppl and look really strong because they have the best training methods for developing that type of strength. Anyone could develop the strength GSP and Rory have if they only knew how.

Developing that kind of strength isn't as easy as doing squats or running a lot. You're using different muscle groups. If a person took the time to study human anatomy and recognized which muscle groups were most important in successfully executing a takedown. Then, experimented to figure out how to best target and develop those muscle groups to their full potential -- they could probably enjoy a big advantage over others who aren't willing to go to those lengths.

I think at some point GSP and his trainers may well have done exactly that. That's the reason why GSP's legs are so massive in comparison to everyone else's and its also the reason why GSP and Rory have such dominant wrestling and top game.

Bingo! They train very differently from most. It's all functional strength, cross fit, and gymnastics. From what I know gymnasts are p4p the strongest; arms, shoulders, abs, core, back, quads, calves, etc. Body builders are more powerful, but we all know it doesn't quite translate to real striking power ala Super Mario. I do believe Overeem is one of the few exceptions because he trained in kickboxing and has the techniques. When he ballooned he just became "The Specimen." Roids along won't get you that...you still has to work hella hard in the gym to maintain it.
