If you’ve watched Ultimate Fighter, you’ve seen the contestants do more than just work on their punches and ground game – they train to be in the ultimate shape so they can outlast their opponent. It’s not enough just to be strong, to be fast or to be skilled if you run out of breath. Conditioning training is essential – and that is training that combines strength and stamina. If done right, you should be breathing like you’ve never breathed before – like you are gasping for your very last breath. When you work that hard, it’s just a natural primal instinct – an instinct of just trying to stay alive. That’s why we named this RAW (Ridiculous A**Kicking Workout, dedicated to GNC Beyond Raw) PRIMAL. Enjoy!
