Who or what is “GSP” and why should I care?
For those of you who are wondering what the heck GSP means, you needn`t worry cause you are not alone. GSP are the initials of the UFC (Ultimate fighting championship) Welter-weight champion George St. Pierre. The phrase “Rush” comes from the fighters nickname (“cage name”).
George is famous for his constantly improving “game”. He never settles for anything less than the best when it comes to training. Always exploring new ways of strengthening his body and also becoming more flexible in the process.
I can assure you that this program is not one of those gimmicks or fads, created exclusively for sucking your wallets dry. I believe George is well of with the millions he made through the years of fighting for the UFC. He is a true inspiration and ambassador of the sport and wishes good health to all.
What is Rushfit all about?
Rushit is based on a mixed martial arts (mma) background, but it doesn’t mean ordinary people of all fitness levels can take a whack at it. Many start training MMA for the fun and excitement of it, not for any competitive reasons.
It is an 8-week program which is planned out to fit any fitness level, beginner, intermediate or advance. You will set your own barriers and determine the difficulty as you progress. You will not need any major equipment. Dumbells (free weights) are the only ingredient. You can get them at any local fitness/sports store or you can check them out online.
Rushfit is a full body program so you don’t target certain muscle groups at a time, but you always workout your entire body, whilst targeting different aspects of training, be it strength, endurance, agility, balance or explosiveness. You will never reach your full potential, if you are weak in some parts of the body and overly powerful in others. The weak link of the chain will always bring you down.
The base of the Rushfit workout is a high intensity interval style of training. There are 5 minutes “non-stop” rounds of MMA style drills, with 60 second rests in between rounds. This is the same as in UFC (and other mma organisations) fights.
Just like any fighter you should also eat properly and healthy. Rushfit provides a basic, yet professional dieting plan (generic; there are no recipes etc.) to help you receive your results faster.
