Big Victories comes from small gains, top MMA fighter Mark Streigl shares a six minute workout that can help you develop a healthy lifestyle. Take the 28 days Fitstrong Challenge and start a habit of fitness and achieve results.
Under Armour Athlete and top MMA Fighter shared his workout routine to national coaches and trainers last Saturday, February 10, 2018 at Edsa Shangrila Hotel for the launch of 28 Days Fitstrong Challenge. 28 days could be a life changer as your body learns to adopt to the different workouts and can help your mind adopt into a system and a lifestyle of fitness. It’s a road map to being fit, toned and losing weight. As an MMA fighter, keeping weight is a key factor for Mark to make weight limit and his routine helps ensure that he is ready by fight day.
Mark shared a 6-minute workout you can incorporate in your day. Even if you are on a busy schedule, it still a good habit to maintain. I do mine in the morning before I go to work and try to do another set when I am at home. It’s a simple 6 minute routine as follows:
- 30 seconds knee rolls (similar to crunches with your hands reaching your knees per repetition).
- 30 seconds leg lifts (from a flat lying position, straighten your legs and lift up and pull down)
- 30 seconds plank
- 30 seconds knee crunches (from a push up position, alternately crunch your knee to your core are)
- Repeat the set 3 times without rest and your good to go.
The hardest part is to start but once you get the hang of it, the routine becomes a habit. I’m also taking the 28 days fitstrong challenge so please join me with the challenge and let’s inspire more people to a fitness lifestyle.
28 Day Fitstrong Challenge
The 28 Days Fitstrong Challenge was developed by Mark throughout his MMA career and can be done with the aid of Sanctband. It can be done anywhere and will help people achieve a healthy lifestyle and at the same time becoming fitter and stronger at the end of the program. Aside from a healthy lifestyle and a stronger version of you, you’ll also get a chance to win some prizes from Under Armour and Sanctband.

There will be a series of video tutorials from Mark Streigl that would be uploaded to various social media platforms weekly. During the entire contest, a participant must perform the video tutorial, the post it on their social media account everyday with the use of the unique hashtag alongside major partners #SanctbandGlobal #SanctbandPH #UnderArmourSEA and #UnderArmourPH. At the end of the challenge, the participant must also post their before and after photo. Winners will be selected through the participants social media posts.
Streigl has also tested the 28 days fitstrong challenge on his friend.
“He is my high school friend. He works in Taipei and he flew over to the Philippines and live with me for five weeks. He wanted to have more energy, feel better, feel stronger, and be healthier. He was able to lose 30 pounds in four weeks. He feels much healthier. I’m very happy with his progress and I know he is happy too,” said Striegl.
Earlier during the day, there was also a Sanctband certification for the national coaches and trainers conducted by representatives from Sanctband Master Trainer Jeremy Ng. Sanctband has a whole range of fitness equipment including mat, resistance bands, spider cord among others. It was one of the more lively training sessions I’ve seen with some interactive games to energize the participants. The workout sessions featured the different Sanctband products and their uses. The resistance bands can really help you strengthen muscle group and improve your form.
Sanctband Resistance Band, which would be exclusively distributed by One of a Kind Marketing in the Philippines, is a natural latex resistive exerciser and resistance training device. It is suitable for all fitness levels and can be incorporated in many exercise regime. Sanctband Resistance Exercise Band is colour-coded to indicate the resistance levels and strengths of physiotherapy, rehabilitation, sports therapy and training. Sanctband Powder Free and Reduced Protein Exercise Bands are developed to address the uncomfortable feeling of using powdered bands and concerns of latex allergy when using a latex band.
The different Sanctband products are impressive. It’s like having a whole gym available at home. The Sanctband was perfect for the national coaches and trainers as it goes well with different sports. You can strengthen the different muscle groups needed for any sports by adding resistance. The participants did the workout with and without Sanctband and after using Sanctband, the routine felt easier and with improved form.
The session was informative and also gave the coaches and trainers a different approach to their training routines. Brazilian Jiujitsu Champion and Under Armour Athlete Meggie Ochoa also gave a short talk to the participants and mentioned her upcoming talk on Self Defense upcoming in April. Under Armour and Sanctband was able to give us new approaches to fitness through the 28 days Fit Strong Challenge and Sanctband resistance bands.
