EP021a: Nothing Trumps Experience with Rich “Ace” Franklin

You must get out of your comfort zone to accomplish what you desire.

Ongoing training and proper nutrition are key factors in keeping your body in top shape. Even if you don’t desire the life of a cage fighter, you can learn important life and fitness lessons from our guest Rich Franklin. He shares both his training regimen and nutritional goals with us. In preparation for an MMA or UFC fight, he physically works his body for 22 grueling hours a week; and he uses Armor Gel exclusively to keep his body protected from dangerous infections while working out. Rich believes that “Anything worth accomplishing in life is going to be a difficult task” and he shares his positive and encouraging message with people all over the world.
