15 Times Ronda Rousey Inspired Us to Kick Some Ass
When She’s Preparing for a Fight
Ronda Rousey faced Bethe Correia in August this week (and beat her in 34 seconds!); this week, she started prepping for her next fight. One thing is for sure, we wouldn’t want to be the ones challenged by her in a fight. (That's why she’s one of these Strong Women Changing the Face of Girl Power As We Know It.)
Facing Bethe Correia
With an undefeated MMA record, there’s no denying that Rousey is a force to be reckoned with in the ring. BRB—changing our alarm to read, “If Ronda Rousey can crush her opponent in 34 seconds, you can get up for work.”
When She’s Weighing In
With her rigorous schedule and the need to cut weight every few months, it could be difficult to maintain a positive body image. But Rousey prides herself on cutting weight the healthy way and—as evidenced by this photo from August—she’s never looked better. Maybe if we did these 9 Core Exercises That Get You Closer to a Six-Pack we’d look as good as her?
While Hitting a Punching Bag
Even while stretching, Rousey has the face of pure determination. What we wouldn’t give to go through a full day of workouts with her!

When She's Pursuing Progress
Ronda Rousey can give her competitors the one-two punch in less time than it takes most ladies to pick a pair of workout leggings for spin class. She captioned this shot "on the never ending pursuit of progress." We have no doubt this fighter will push herself as far as physically possible.
After a Hard Workout
Rousey has been very vocal about her goal to retire from fighting with a perfect record. If there's anyone who can go undefeated, it'll be her. By the way, Rousey, can we borrow your stomach to wash our clothes?
At the ESPY Awards
As evidenced at the ESPYAwards, Rousey looks just as good in the ring as out of it. Her muscled physique proves strong is sexy.
When She's Wearing Headgear
Rousey's take no prisoners approach may inspire you to punch up your own workout routine. Seriously, no one has looked this good in boxing gear since Hillary Swank in Million Dollar Baby.

During a Core Workout
Obviously strong abs are at the core (sorry, had to!) of Rousey’s training—crossed leg crunches must be the secret to her tremendously toned shape.
