    Ronda Rousey Gets in Fighting Shape with 6-Hour Gym Sessions! Her Trainer Breaks Down Her Intense Workout

    [​IMG]

    Becoming a champion fighter requires a lot of time in the gym.

    "The key to success is long hours, instead of just coming in the gym and getting a quick workout," Ronda Rousey's trainer Edmond Tarverdyan tells PEOPLE.

    When Rousey is training for a fight, she meets with Tarverdyan for up to six hours a day, six days a week, where she goes through strength and conditioning training as well as boxing conditioning.


    Tarverdyan, a Reebok partner and owner/head trainer at Glendale Fighting Club, breaks down exactly how Rousey gets in fighting shape:

    A typical workout begins with stretching. Rousey often uses a long stick to help maintain posture and improve balance during stretches.

    "You're stretching out your hips, shoulders, knees," says Tarverdyan. "You're getting a nice warm-up before throwing any punches so you'll be nice and warm to prevent injuries."

    Next Rousey – who is the star of Reebok's #PerfectNever campaign – skips rope for 10 minutes to get her heart rate up.

    Once she's warmed up, Rousey does 10 to 12 rounds of bag work. Tarverdyan is a fan of bag drops – circling around the bag while punching, changing directions every minute-and-a-half.

    "It's important to keep that intensity and that consistency," he says. "To be a professional fighter, you want to be able to punch non-stop." [It takes a lot of energy to be a #Rockstar]

    Next, Rousey will do mitt work in the ring – throwing punches in various combinations into Tarverdyan's mitts. She typically does 10 to 15 rounds of three to five minutes each, but sometimes will do an hour of mitt work without any rests!

    "When you learn how to throw a punch you're throwing it with your whole body – your hips, your shoulders, your core is tight," says Tarverdyan. "You're engaging maximum focus, maximum speed, maximum power."

    Surprisingly, no heavy weights are incorporated into her routine. Rousey works with 2-lb. dumbbells to do a series of arm exercises, including uppercuts, straight punches, high punches, tricep curls and shadowboxing.

    "It's not much weight so you're not going to get so muscular, but you're going to get toned," explains Tarverdyan. "You're conditioning your body."

    Rousey finishes her workout with ab work – sometimes eating up to 2,000 crunchies doing up to 2,000 crunches per session.

    "Abs you can do as much as you want," says Tarverdyan. "She keeps the intensity very high!

    Ronda Rousey loses 'Captain Marvel' movie role to Oscar-winning actress

    [​IMG]

    Sorry, Ronda Rousey, but the role of Carol Danvers, AKA, "Captain Marvel," has gone to none other than Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson.

    Larson was confirmed and introduced as the next actress to join the Marvel family over the weekend during the festivities at San Diego’s Comic Con.

    Rousey had expressed her interest in getting the gig last year during a fan chat on Reddit.


    It didn’t take long for "Rowdy's" fans to get creative as they instantly took to Photoshop to bust out their best images of Rousey portraying the character, which you can check out here. #fail

    /

    In the end, the studio went with Larson, a powerhouse of an actress who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for leading actress for her portrayal as "Ma" in the award-winning film "Room" in 2015.

    "Captain Marvel" is expected to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.

    Her striking looks vastly improved based on the gif. It's a shame for her to lose the movie role, but it was probably a wise decision on the part of producers.

    EXCLUSIVE: Ronda Rousey's ex-training partner casts doubt over UFC return

    The former queen of the bantamweight division, who is regarded by many to be the greatest female fighter ever, hasn't set foot inside the Octagon since UFC 193 - where she took on Albuquerque's Holly Holm.

    Rousey, who at the time was riding a ten-fight winning streak, suffered a stunning second-round loss to 'The Preacher's Daughter' which saw her lose the 135-pound title.

    The 29-year-old Olympic bronze medallist has become somewhat of a recluse after her first career defeat and has rarely been seen out in public.


    /
    Tony Jeffries has serious doubts over Rousey returning to mixed martial arts and believes her life outside of the sport could possibly sway her to call time on her career.

    [​IMG]

    "With Ronda, I really don't know," the Olympic bronze medallist told Daily Star Sport.

    "I trained Ronda before she came to the gym and I done a session with her and I put her on the mitts and done a boxing session with her, she's a nice girl.

    "But as for her coming back, I don't know. I think (Conor) McGregor will come back and I think (Fabricio) Werdum will come back. But with Ronda, it's a tough one.

    [​IMG]

    This Tony Jeffries cat sounds like a bum. Olympic bronze medal and a 9-0-1 pro record with 6 KOs before retiring due to injury? That's all he's got? Master Tarverdyan is far beyond his boxing/training level. Thank goodness Ronda moved camps to get the real deal.

    Ronda don't do casting couch BJ's, so she's going in handicapped.

    Brie Larson is a dirty DNB.

    Rousey deserved an Oscar for her performance in Fast and Furious.

    Ronda is loyal to a fault. Wish she didn't get her start with that fucking rapscallion Tarderpyan.

    Not that loyal to her own mother though, I think Ronda acts more out of spite than anything.
