Ms. Namita Nayyar: What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you shall like to share?
Ms. Michelle Waterson: I think it is important to drill over and over again until you are sick of drilling, then drill some more. I also like to shadow boxing which is like fighting an imagery opponent. Shadow boxing allows you to fix your mistakes and make your movement smooth so that it becomes second nature. Doing bag work is also a good workout routine. It allows me to work on my power and footwork.
One of my favorite things to do to improve my stamina are tabatas. 20 seconds high intensity, 10 seconds rest, seven times, then rest for one min in between sets. Do it three times. This is very short but very effective way to build your explosive muscles.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. Michelle Waterson: I stay very hydrated, and eat very clean. I try to stay away from processed, fried foods. Towards the end of my camp I stick to leaner meats and lots of green veggies.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Advice and motivational words to the inspiring and budding mixed martial artist girls who all are your fans, they shall like to know from you, what they should do for their climb to ladder of success in field of women mixed martial art and other style of professional fighting ?
Ms. Michelle Waterson: The best advice I can give is to take it day by day. Some days will be harder than others, but allow yourself to make mistakes. Mistakes are good, if you learn from them, and get better. The only person that can truly stop you from achieving your goals is yourself, so don’t get in your own way!
