Sports Illustrated has a feature on the daily routine and workout of UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell. It’s a good article for understanding what these fighters do on a daily routine. Here’s an excerpt from the story about “The Iceman’s” daily routine:
11 a.m. Wake. Six to eight egg whites with hot sauce, two slices wheat toast. Water. “Fights are at night, so I wake late and train late to acclimate,” says Liddell. “I want 9 p.m. to be like the middle of my day.”
2:30 p.m. Grilled chicken breast or grilled salmon, white rice, broccoli or carrots. Water. “I’ll reheat this for my other meals,” he says. “I had a nutritionist who gave me different meal plans. Too much work.”
7 p.m. Repeat lunch meal. “If I vary and go out, it’s usually for sashimi,” he says. “I’ll have salmon and tuna and water. No alcohol during training.”
10:30 p.m. Repeat lunch meal.
