Gladiator vs Caveman

While Gina Carano has spent the last 2 months hitting people with oversized q-tips and trying to shed 2 billion pounds, her upcoming opponent Kaitlin Young has been in Minnesota training hardcore NON-STOP. The above video shows a part of her training, known as ‘CAVEMAN’. While I dunno if I think it’s the ‘smartest’ way to train (flipping giant tires and lugging around wheelbarrows to exhaustion seems like a good way to have an accident wreck your shit), I’m sure it’s getting Kaitlin into freaktastic shape.

    I really need to see some side-by-side comparisons, because Gina just looks a lot bigger than Kaitlin to me. It really doesn’t seem like many of the women in MMA are cutting the way that Gina is – and that’s going to give her an advantage for a while.

    As Master Lee would say, “Truck tires…don’t hit back.”
    All kidding aside, though, that’s definitely badass.

  • Captain

    The combination of that workout, with the way she lifts, and no back brace seems pretty ripe for a back injury.

  • Matt (but I signed up as Mr. Unbelievable Pants)

    I’m no expert but my back was screaming just watching… HARDCORE!

  • Jeremy (not that Jeremy)

    Cobra vs Mongoose!

    Aren’t truck tires a major part of Gabriel Gonzaga’s training regimen?

    Hope it works out better for her.

    Fuck a caveman

    Train like dogs!
    Like fuckin dogs cuz im fuckin crazy

  • MacDaddy

    flipping truck/tractor tires is an old wrestling training exercise – it works lots of the muscle groups you use in an explosive takedown. What’s going to happen in a tough fight is going to be exponentially more difficult than flipping a tire to exhaustion, so if you can’t flip the tire without getting hurt, god help you in the cage….

    Kaitlin got wrecked by an amateur in her last bout once the fight hit the floor. Although her last opponent was no slouch, Kaitlin should have creamed her. I’m thinking Gina may have something up her sleeve when it hits the floor, but Gina’s lack of training time could definitely hurt her and EliteXC.

    kaitlin better kill her standing up and really fast, or just hope gina gets gassed from lack of training or something else like that…

    also, all that cutting weight won’t help when your opponent can lift twice your body weight…

    also, after watching that, I’ll never complain about running laps w/ 2x35lb dumbells, or sparring w/ a weight vest on

    this was on cage potato like 2 weeks ago jerk.get with the times slow the way nice job delaying low blow for a busy fudge packing jacob I guess.

  • Roxy

    I can’t flip tires. But I can single leg people to death.

    …..I’ll just keep telling myself that. LOL but yeah, nice point about the tires not hitting back.

    But Elite is smart in that they’re setting up a striking battle….that would get more fans of women’s MMA than a grappling battle, I suppose. :/

  • Jiujitsu365

    I am going to go workout right now..

  • Gina’s boy toy

    I’ll take the Gladiator over the caveman! LOL

  • P W

    Looks like she’s on the fast track to moderately serious to very serious injuries!
