Of course having all the technique in the world is a great thing, but if you don't have the physical tools to implement the technique it becomes useless in practical situations.
That is why taking it easy is not an option for Georges St. Pierre.
One can tell from the sweat and focus on Georges' face in the above photograph that he puts in a 110 percent and is always training at full speed.
He has added 7 pounds of muscle to his frame and he implemented an Olympic power lifting regimen into his training. Fans had a chance to see some of the power lifting techniques Georges has incoporated in episode 1 of UFC Primetime.
Georges is known for his explosiveness, strength and overall conditioning. In fact Dan Hardy was quoted as saying "Georges St. Pierre is an athlete and I am a fighter ".
Although a controversial statement by Dan it is a testament to what fighters think of the athletic tools and level of conditioning Georges brings to the table.
It isn't just the God given athletic ability that gives Georges an edge in the strength and conditioning department it is his dedication and love towards the daily grind of training.
At Georges open training the Francophone media had a chance to hear Georges talk about how driven he is to train.
"A lot of boxers in the off season don't train at all, they get fat and put on weight, But for me that is not the case, I am always in shape. For sure between fights I'll go out with friends and have a couple of beers and stuff like that, it is normal. Even if I go out at night, the next day I am in the gym and you can ask all my trainers and they will say it is true."
