Gina Carano’s workout is intense. She’s driven, focused and works hard. No wonder she is one of the top competitors in Womens MMA.
While Gina Carano’s workout plan is one to be marveled at – watching her workout makes me feel like a pansy – its not a realistic workout for every woman who is trying to get a flat stomach. However, watching her train can give you some inspiration for your own workouts, while you can take away something from the way she trains.
#1 – FOCUS
Gina Carano’s training is focused. The workouts she are doing are focused on her ultimate goal – to win. I personally don‘t have any plans to step inside a ring and go fight, but I certainly plan on winning the game of life and achieving my goals. This means that every one of my workouts should be focused to help me reach that goal. Whatever your flat stomach goals are, those goals should transfer to your workouts. Are you trying to get a flat stomach? Then your workouts should be focused on helping you get a flat stomach. Or are you trying to lose 10lbs? No matter what your goals are your workouts should be focused to getting you there.
Gina is not only focused in the gym, she is focused outside of the gym as well. Any wrestler or fighter competes in a weight class, which means they have to be very focused on their diet. If I want to get a flat stomach, then I have to make sure my diet is focused on helping me get a flat stomach. Gina’s focus helps her succeed and achieve her flat stomach goals.
#2 – INTENSITY
After watching Gina Carano’s workout on YouTube I wanted to a) completely transform my workout and b) crawl under the desk at how un-intense I felt my workouts were. I actually did neither, but I did go into my next workout and attack it with a new intensity and trained harder than I had in months. As a result, I couldn’t walk for days!
When you head to the gym, make sure you attack your workout with an intensity like you are training for your next fight. Training with a safe intensity will help you burn more calories and reach your weight loss goals faster. Not to mention, it will help make your workouts more fun!
#3 – DEDICATION
There are plenty of days when you don’t want to go to the gym or workout – every one – even elite athletes – feel the same way. However, the difference between the winners and the losers is their level of dedication to winning and reaching their goals. The winners head to the gym on days when they don’t feel like going, when maybe they hurt a bit or don’t feel like it — they get rid of the negative mindset and go for it. This is the type of dedication Gina Carano has with her workouts, which makes her a winner – both in and out of the ring.
Gina Carano’s workouts are intense and not necessarily one for every woman to follow. However, if you take her focus, intensity and dedication to her workouts in mind, you too will be able to train like a rockstar and win whatever match you are training for.
