Take a peek at Cro Cop’s UFC 128 training camp

There are some things in life that too much of can be a very bad thing. Things like Kesha music, quoting Charlie Sheen and probiotic infused yogurt should always be used in moderation. I stay away from Kesha music and quoting Charlie Sheen but I have ingested more than one container of YoPlus yogurt in a 12 hour time frame and my advice to you is never do it. Unless you are looking for a new stomach cramping laxative for your bulimia based weight loss routine-then by all means, have at it. The blackberry pomegranate flavor is fairly tasty. That right there was a perfect example of TMI.

On the other hand, life is fullof things that we just can never get too much of. Around here that normally includes Wu Tang Clan, tacos and Nick Diaz quotes. This week I’m adding Mirko Cro Cop to our ‘things you can’t just have too much of’ list. To help you cram your day full of Cro Cop I recommend you read this Fighters Only Magazine account of a couple of days they spent with him last month in Zagreb during his UFC 128 training camp. Here’s a small snippet of their write up:

“Today though its all business. He takes CroCop on the pads. The first rounds are just hands and its all easy, loose stuff; Mirko is still warming up. But as the padwork intensifies over the rounds, Hippo starts working kicks in. He holds the pads for the signature left kick; it lands with a crack. Several more follow. The left leg is snappy and there is no sign of discomfort when throwing it.

The action moves on to sparring. Today he is going five rounds of five minutes with a different opponent each round. Watching Hron on the bags and pads, you get the feeling there will be some bruises exchanged imminently and so they are; within minutes a CroCop salvo has someone’s nose bleeding like a tap. They carry on; the Pride FC canvas which covers the cage floor is spotted with blood, a little more won’t make any difference.”

After reading and learning that a few days with Cro Cop includes lots of laughing, eating, 80’s music and road rage induced bouts of English profanity-you will probably still have room for more Cro Cop (and maybe even more 80’s music) in your day. In that case, check out this visual of Cro Cop training for his UFC 128 fight with Brendan Schaub. Don’t be surprised if you spend the rest of the afternoon happliy high kicking the air and singing Bon Jovi songs in a Croatian accent. It’s nothing to be concerned over, it’s just the Cro Cop effect. Enjoy. [source
