Mike Tyson’s diet and strength training routine is beyond belief!

Mike Tyson in his hey days used to jog at 4:30 am and was once inquired by a journalist about this: “Why do you run so early?” To which he replied: “Because I know that while I train, my opponent is still sleeping.” Such was the dedication of Iron Mike and that is the kind of attitude that makes a legend.

Taken in by the Legendary Boxing Coach CusD’Almato at the age of 16, right after his father’s demise . Mike Tyson never shied away from a challenge and he took his training routine to such levels that were unheard of ever before.

  • Breakfast- Oatmeal with milk and vitamins.
  • Lunch- Rice with chicken breasts and orange juice.
  • Snack- Protein shake with 6 bananas.
  • Dinner- Pasta and steak with tropical juice.

This looks like a beast’s diet, and Mike Tyson was nothing short one. His boxing record is testament to that fact. But you need a crazy workout discipline to back up this diet and Iron Mike had an absolutely crazy strength training routine, here is a sample of his daily workout:
