Derrick Lewis will aim to put himself back on the map for another title shot by defeating Chris Daukaus at UFC Vegas 45. Thus, 'The Black Beast' is putting hours in on his training to accomplish this goal. Here is how Lewis' training routine looks like.
'The Black Beast' works out in a different way than your everyday MMA athletes. He only trains for two hours a day, six days a week.
Lewis' cardio sessions typically include at least 30 minutes of running, treadmill, or stair masters.
Lewis does not lift heavyweights. Instead, he focuses on bodyweight exercises like squats and push-ups.
Boxing is an important aspect of Lewis' training regimen. His boxing sessions include pad work, heavy bag workouts, and more.
Lewis follows a high protein diet with carbs and fibers during fight camp. He will prefer eating chicken breasts, veggies, eggs, and protein smoothies.
