Brock Lesnar's workout: How does The Beast Incarnate maintain his physique?


We take a look into The Beast Incarnate's workout regime

The Beast Incarnate got back into tip-top shape for UFC 200

We are all aware that Brock Lesnar is a freak of nature. UFC colour commentator Joe Rogan has even gone on the record to say that Lesnar is simply “genetically superior”, with the context being Lesnar’s Wrestlemania XIX botched shooting star press that could have nearly ended his life.

However, being the freak athlete that he is, he not only continued the match but finished it and stood tall to end his first Wrestlemania.

  • Here is a clip of The Beast Incarnate’s workout in his first run with the UFC several years ago. Just watching it will make you sweat!


    Lesnar’s workout is so intense that he doesn’t need to watch his eating habits to lose weight. In fact, he works out so hard that he ensures his intake involves high Calories, high protein and 1 Gallon of water a day with electrolytes.

  • However, the above-noted was for his MMA training. He did put on some more weight during his WWE run, but that does not mean he has been out of shape. His isolated home in Saskatchewan definitely allows him to pursue his intense workout without the interference or disturbance of too many people.

  • He still manages to keep in shape, and for a freak athlete such as himself, it comes to him as personal desire to do so, as he stated in the above video that he does not want the machines to “beat him”
