Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

Yahoo! Sports continued looking at how elite athletes train by checking in with Georges St- Pierre and his gymnastics training.

Gymnastics have clearly given the welterweight champ a challenge in strength and conditioning. Throughout the workout, he only uses his own body weight, and not any weights. He's showing a different way to get in shape.

Though he isn't likely to challenge Kohei Uchimura or Jonathan Horton in London next summer, he did show off an impressive move that's usually only accomplished by seasoned gymnasts. While on the still rings, St-Pierre drops into the iron cross, a move that requires strength and impeccable body control. It doesn't show if he holds the move long enough to score bonus points, but that he can even try it shows off his insane athleticism.
