Stay in Fighting Shape with Andre Galvao

 

Mixed Martial Arts has exploded in the last decade to be the most watched combat sport in the world. Many of the fighting styles have specialists who are primarily known for that particular style. In the world of jiujitsu, one name stands over the rest as a legend and among the best ever.

Galvão has so many championships that it would be difficult to fit them all in this column. From Brazil to the US and at all points in between, if you are in a cage or on a mat and Galvao is standing across from you, then it is going to be a long day. 

In recent years, he has been honing his craft to take over the 170 pound class of Strikeforce as well as teaching students at his school in San Diego, California. He took some time to speak to me and share his training split as well as his supplement program to ensure he is always on top of his game.
