Thanks to athletes-turned-celebs like Michael Phelps, we're no strangers to performance diets that clock in at around the 10,000-calorie mark for the sake of packing on muscle. But, a glance at Phelps' daily diet reads like an assignment sheet and feels worlds away from Byamba's approach to performance dieting.

While he prepares the Chankonabe in the video, he talks about how he began wrestling as a teenager and was inspired by watching previous champions practice.
Watch the video above for more details on the impressive training regimen of one of the toughest athletes around.
