In preparation for the next big step in his UFC career, this Saturday night at the new Prudential Center in Newark NJ, Edgar has taken a break from his part-time plumbing job and devoted himself full-time to his main passion, training and fighting in different venues across the nation. "I'm constantly seeking out different workout partners," Edgar says. "You have to do that in order to keep up with everybody else, especially a guy like Spencer Fisher."
Clearly, proper supplementation is key, too. "In Mixed Martial Arts, it's all about power and speed. I have to stay lean while maximizing strength and stamina. So I have to eat clean. Protein quality is critical, so I stick to a 100% pure whey isolate like ProSource NytroWhey. No fat, no excess carbs. Also I like to use ProSource's Glutamine. With my extended, high-intensity training regimen, I have to prevent muscle breakdown and deterioration as much as possible, and ProSource Glutamine is the best anti-catabolic you can buy."
To sustain the grueling workout regimen that is commonplace immediately prior to a scheduled fight, the 155-pound lightweight has to eat consistently throughout the day, while adhering to the highest nutritional standards. That's where another key supplement comes into play.
" Supreme Protein bars work for me. They've got just six net carbs per bar, and their protein profile is first rate. More high-quality whey isolate than any other bar out there and they're a delicious gourmet snack. I eat two or three a day, so I'm never tempted to eat junk when I'm training."
Does the up-and-coming contender care to make any predictions about Saturday's UFC fight?
"It's going to be a great fight. I'm going to back in New Jersey," the Toms River-based fighter says. "I'm going to have a home crowd behind me and a terrific competitor in the Octagon with me. Expect the sparks to fly."
