Johny Hendricks training gallery


Cooper Neill from the New York Times recently followed UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks as  he prepared for Robbie Lawler

Hendricks trains full time, often two or three times a day, doing S&C circuits at a local high school, striking and BJJ training at the gym, and trips to Oklahoma State to wrestle with his former coach, two-time Olympic Champion John Smith.

He's also a husband and father, and he fights for his wife and children.

His wife, Christina, tended to their sick 2-year-old daughter, Adli, at their home in Midlothian, Tex., in February. 

Johny Hendricks, 30, went through a workout at Kennedale High School in Texas earlier this month.

Hendricks often trained two or three times a day ahead of the fight.

In preparation for the title fight, Hendricks often trained at high schools in Texas.

Hendricks studied Lawler’s previous fights while training for the  bout.

Hendricks swam laps after soaking in a hot tub for 20 minutes the day before the weigh-in in Dallas. He came in at one and a half pounds over the 170-pound limit for his class, sending him and his team scrambling

Hendricks defeated Lawler by unanimous decision and was awarded another “Fight of the Night” bonus.

All those other pictures are of him training for a fight and NOT cutting water weight, and you can see his body in full. The ONE picture of him weight cutting is just below his pecs, you fucking moron. He's jacked to the gills when he's training, so if it's ok for this idiot to accuse someone smaller then him of being on steroids then he can get it back just the same.Bet you feel pretty stupid. Fucking retard.

"Hendricks swam laps after soaking in a hot tub for 20 minutes the day before the weigh-in in Dallas." soaking in a hot tub for 20mins the day before weigh ins... i wonder what he was doing in there! and i also wonder why he would be training his cardio(according to you) during a time where he is cutting out all food and water you should feel pretty stupid thanks

Its so funny how on the UG if you are in decent shape,you must be roiding haha...Like if you are anything less than morbidly obese,you are clearly roiding. I know this might sound crazy,but maybe Johnny works out really hard and eats right.
