Forrest Griffin’s Workout

Forrest Griffin has been to the top of the UFC’s Light Heavyweight Division and knows what it takes to get there.  Known for his amazing work ethic and heart, Forrest Griffin often out works, out paces and out lasts his opponents.  His high endurance and no quit attitude wears opponents down and steals their will.  Sure, some of his athleticism is likely to be genetic, but Griffin isn’t known as one of the hardest working fighters in the business for nothing.  Griffin works out three times a day, six days a week to be the fighter he is.  You want a taste of what Forrest Griffin does in the gym?  Here is his workout courtesy of Men’s Fittness.
