On The Rampage: Quinton Jackson's Gut-Busting Circuit Workout

Quinton Jackson likes to have the last laugh, in life and the octagon. How does he do it? This circuit workout is a side-splitter, and not just because Rampage likes to crack wise.

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson fights in the toughest MMA organization on Earth, the Ultimate Fighting Championships. A former UFC light heavyweight champion, he must stay in impeccable shape to be the last man standing in a fight.

It takes strength, endurance and a mean streak to be the last man standing in the octagon. Funny thing is, Rampage is pretty much a comedian outside the ring. But once the fight begins, those punchlines turn into punches, kicks and pretty much anything else Rampage can use to leave his opponent beaten and humbled. No joke.

Name: Quinton "Rampage" Jackson
Birthdate: June 20, 1978
Birthplace: Memphis, Tennessee
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 205 lbs
Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion
Former Pride Fighting (Japan) Middleweight Champion

This circuit workout is meant to be performed twice per week. These "giant sets" mix heart-pounding body-weight movements with stabilization exercises to work muscles you can't even name without an anatomy book or Google search.

All Rampage asks is that you be man enough to finish what you start - and don't piss him off, either, or he'll introduce you to new renditions of pain and submission.
