5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT SAMANTHA DIAZ
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF TRAINING LIKE?
A typical day of training for me consist of getting up early and starting my day of with a nice long run. I try to run 5 miles a day minimum. Then I go into the gym and have my weight lifting session. After that we do at least an hour of drilling whether it be striking or grappling. I usually stretch for a good 30 mins and start on pad work with my coaches after that I usually do more drills and technique or go live and/or roll. On certain days, we usually spar.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU AS A FIGHTER
As a fighter, what motivates me the most is just always trying to better myself. I love challenges and I love testing myself. Every time I get a new opponent I get excited because I have to find a way to beat them. Every fight is different; every fighter has different skills so I love to take on a new challenge. I feel like with every fight I learn a lot about myself. I think what keeps me motivated and what keeps me going is just not wanting to embarrass myself in the cage. I always want to be prepared even for the unexpected. My motivation is my family. I want to show my siblings that anything is possible if you give it your all. Nothing is impossible because there is always a way you just have to find it.
