Khabib Nurmagomedov: Do This To Recover For Combat Sports

Khabib Nurmagomedov conditioniing secrets
Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the most dominant MMA fighters to ever step inside the octagon. The notorious Dagestani star now shares his recipe for efficient recovery for fighters: stability and routine.

After Islam Makhachev’s, Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was in his corner after preparing him for his UFC performances, is back in the spotlight. “The Eagle” is a fighter who we have never seen tired inside the octagon. In fact, he easily tired out every other fighter who stood against him in the octagon.

And his secret is not wrestling bears in Dagestan. The UFC Hall Of Famer (29-0), who retired undefeated recently shared his take on how to become a good grappler on the Wahed Podcast:

Guys ask me, like, how you become a good grappler, good top control, wrestling, conditioning…

I was wrestling every day, like one hour. Non-stop, one hour – can you imagine it? With new  opponents, for one hour. And then, when you finish, you go do some exercise; lifting, running, bikes, work with coach…

Khabib Nurmagomedov also added that stability and routine were the cornerstones of his success:

You know, I was doing the same thing all my life. Stability, stability… If you don’t have stability, if you don’t recover between the trainings – you’re never going to become a success.

You have to train hard. Every day, you have to do the same thing. You have to do same thing every single day. And so many years, you have to sacrifice everything that you have.”

Khabib Nurmagomedov also credited recovery as being the main piece of the puzzle for his extremely efficient conditioning inside the octagon:

Between trainings, you have to recover. A lot of people don’t understand what recovery is. A lot of people call it, like: massage, supplements… [But] for me, recovery is sleep.

Most important thing; between trainings, like, at least 2-3 hours. All my life, I was like daytime – I was sleeping. Like, from maybe 11 to 1, maybe 12 to 2, maybe 2 to 4…
You know, between trainings you have to sleep because you train so hard; morning for 2 hour and night for 2 and a half… You need rest.”
