I was looking at the weigh-in pictures from McGregor and Mayweather today and I noticed that they are both looking pretty lean.

So, how do we build ripped abs like McGregor?

Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Conor McGregor - Weigh-in

It’s hard, but not too hard.

First off, you need to keep a consistent weight training routine over several months.  That routine needs to include heavy compound movements such as bench press, squats, should press, dumbbells, barbell curls and others.

You also need a ton of cardio.  That includes tempo runs (2-4 miles), sprinting, shuttle runs and also some sports.  The sports can be boxing, soccer, rugby, tennis, basketball or any other active sport.

And then most importantly, you need to cut weight.  This winter I went from 180 lbs down to 150 and I plan on cutting 2 or 3 before I am done.

And what happens when you bring it all together?

A) I weigh 3 lbs less than McGregor at around the same height

B) My abs are better.
