A Bodybuilder Attempted Conor McGregor’s Grueling Diet and Workout – VIDEO


In his latest YouTube video, British bodybuilder and YouTuber Matt Morsia—aka, MattDoesFitness—decides to try out UFC fighter Conor McGregor’s MMA workout and diet, which supposedly includes a strict, 3,500-calorie per day regimen.

According to various sources, McGregor apparently starts his day by stretching and rehydrating, drinking water, and having an Americano coffee. After that, McGregor gets in a 30-minute cardio workout, which includes skipping (aka jump rope), slow jogging, and stretching.

“As if I’m going to do 30 minutes of skipping,” Morsia says, as he attempts to jump rope. “I can’t skip.” So, Morsia decides to run instead. Then it’s breakfast time, which consists of avocado, eggs, and apple slices with peanut butter.

“The foundation seems to be raw food—completely no processed food, or fast food,” he says. Next, his wife whips up McGregor’s Peanut Butter Energy Balls for a later snack that consists of flax seeds coconut flour, peanut butter, and chia seeds. Before he can eat them, however, he’s off to the gym, where he has a snack of 4 strawberries and an apple. McGregor doesn’t take pre-workout, but instead relies on the fruit to fuel him.

The workout starts with 30-second stretches, then moves to ‘animal’ mobility walks, including a duck walk, horse walk, and a lizard walk. “Conor McGregor does not do this,” Morsia laughs.

Then he’s into the actual workout, which includes a bodyweight circuit, 5 sets of each move for 1 minute, which includes: muscleups, pushups, pullups, and air squats. After that, he rehydrates with coconut water and his protein balls, just as McGregor does.

Once he finishes his snack, he’s back home and eating again. This time, it’s a protein-packed midday meal consisting of chicken with mustard, honey, paprika, and lemon, alongside rice and corn with greens and flaxseeds.“This is a really good meal,” Morsia says. “7.5-8 out of 10 meal.”

And in true McGregor fashion, Morsia has another snack and cracks open a bottle of McGregor’s triple-distilled Irish whiskey called Proper Twelve with some dark chocolate. “I’ve probably dr-ank wh-iskey once, so I’m probably not a good ga-uge,” he says. For his last meal of the day, he eats cod, sweet potato, green beans and kale—with a shot of wh-iskey.

“I’m done and I’m full,” he says. “Not a lot of calories, but lots of volume. My stomach is pretty full.” His final dessert/snack is yogurt, fruit and nuts. While he was a fan of the diet, the training was a b-ust, and not likely correct. “The training was te-rrible,” he says in conclusion. “I’m gonna wager the training source was not very reliable.”
