To be a professional bull rider, you need a combination of brute strength, explosive power, and lightning-quick agility. Not to mention nerves of steel and some serious balls.
Without all that there’s no way you can last the required eight seconds atop a bucking bull to get the score you need on the PBR tour.
Men’s Fitness cover star Guilherme Marchi understands this all too well.
That’s why he’s become a nearly indestructible athlete taking part in “the toughest sport on dirt.”
Marchi uses an intense workout routine to build full-body strength and help keep him from ending up on the dirt himself. The PBR star detailed the training regimen for Men’s Fitness, which includes leg cradles, leg raises, lunges, kettlebell swings, classic pushups, medicine ball work, and tire flips.
Much like other ripped athletes and jacked supertstar celebrities—like Baywatch star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Fate of the Furious actor Vin Diesel, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt, and Jumanji star Kevin Hart—the PBR star likes to motivate the masses by sharing his workouts on social media.
