Combat Lifestyle photographer Tracy Lee spent a day up at Big Bear photographing Dan Henderson’s training camp. And while most of the pictures are atypical of what you’d see from most other photographers, Tracy always seems willing to go the extra mile and get into the fighter’s bedrooms for the good stuff. Ahem. In this case that means getting to see Dan Henderson pulling a Michael Jackson and sleeping inside a bubble:
Dan went upstairs to take a nap. I went up and caught some photos of him in his high altitude tent on his bed; reminiscent of the movie, The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. Scientific studies have shown that altitude training can produce increases in speed, strength, endurance, and recovery. Does that mean that sleeping in a high altitude tent, in a high altitude environment increases this effect exponentially? I took the time to explore the house a little and found 5 beds in each downstairs room, a pool table, fire place, and guitars for guitar hero.
Unfortunately there’s no Guitar Hero pics involved, but overall it’s worth checking out Tracy’s blog of the whole event and seeing what an average day in Dan Henderson’s training camp is like. Will it be enough to keep the remainder of his real teeth from being knocked into the back of his throat by Anderson Silva? Uuuuuuuuh. Hmmm. Guess we’ll see.
