In one of his interviews, this bright wrestler shared his views about frequency of his fighting. Here’s what we have.
Cain likes performing twice a year. Such choice he considers to be perfect for himself. He’s very active and at the same time the wrestler can take a full training. In addition, there is time to rest between fights. Actually, Cain doesn’t say that he gets injured or he gets heavy damage in fights, but he likes to do a short break after the fight, and then slowly returns to training rather than rush headlong.
That’s how Cain Velasquez builds up his working schedule. But, sometimes, he has to fight three times a year, so it keeps him constantly busy and occupied. Still, the sportsman says it’s not a big problem, so he can fight even thrice a year.
The man also shared the story about his shoulder injury. What happened then?
Several years ago Cain had an operation on his shoulder. I was pretty aware of the fact that it wasn’t that easy. Once, the fighter had almost identical injury, and he knew that the recovery is slow and challenging process.
Nevertheless, Velasquez gradually recovered and got his strength back. For some time he couldn’t exercise, but it made a little problem.
These days, Cain Velasquez has three trainings a day! The first one takes place at 8 in the morning. It’s a kind of power lifting. The second one is at midday. It’s a sparing and jiu-jitsu. At last, the third one takes place at about 7 in the evening. It’s a short half hour training.
Here we have an interesting fact that you might, probably, not know about this chunky guy.
Before enrollment into the fighting and long before he became a star, he had worked as a security in one night club. Looking at Cain Velasquez, actually, there’s no doubt that job totally appealed to him.
Some people say that his body doesn’t look like a wrestler’s one. He’s not too pumped up, not lean and has some additional body fat, but Cain himself says that his body is only one more justification that he’s totally natural man.
