The MMA superstar has been keeping a pretty low profile since that loss to Holm, even despite others around her teasing about a possible rematch to get Rousey back on top.
But Rousey was photographed on Thursday

Which he immediately absorbed with his abs!!
You gotta check out this Instagram video (above)! Apparently boxer David "The Hayemaker" Haye and Rita Ora are sparring partners now! Well, we mean, if you consider David being a punching bag a "sparring partner" then we guess that's what's happening!
Rita is ferocious!! Seriously, if we get in a fight, we want her on our team!
Ha! No wonder she has such a fantastic body! She only trains with the best!

Adam Brody all hot and sweaty. Just how we like him!!
The Lovelace has been super active lately as he's been making sure to keep his body in tip top shape!
However, this time he traded in his volleyball for a pair of boxing gloves as he laced up and hit the ring in El Lay for an extensive workout!
We didn't realize Seth Cohen was such a fighter!!
Adam looked like an absolute natural in the gym as he was spotted working the punching bag and sparring with his personal trainer, and he even did his best Robert De Niro impression! However, he might have mixed up Raging Bull with Taxi Driver!
Oh well! At least he looks good in those boxing gloves! LOLz!

If you don't want your teeth knocked out in the boxing ring, you need a mouthguard, which means you'll be breathing through your nose. A FitPerez reader name Gregory is having trouble keeping his nasal passages clear and wrote boxer Alex Brenes for advice, asking:
This is gross, so I am sorry, but I would like to know what boxers use to help keep nasal passages clear, while breathing through their noses. My nose gets full of mucus!
According to Alex:
The question is not gross. It's actually a totally normal question, but the answer is gross. You need to swallow it. If you are fighting/sparring and you are constantly getting hit in the face (sinuses) and you blow your nose, your face may swell up, so clean it with a towel in between rounds (without blowing). Or wipe it on your opponent's shirt, that's what I use to do. Just kidding (maybe)! Hit 'em Greg!!!

When you're in the boxing ring, it's pretty easy to run out of energy if you just start swinging away. A FitPerez reader named Kingston wrote boxing pro Alex Brenes for advice on the topic, asking:
Hello Mr. Brenes,
Any suggestions on how to conserve my energy in the ring so I can be at least 80% in the 3rd round of sparring?
Great question! According to Alex:

FitPerez reader Martin is going into the ring to spar for his first time and can't help but be a little nervous. Looking for some tips to ease his nerves, he wrote boxing pro Alex Brenes, asking:
I've been training for 4 months now (3-4 days a week) and my trainer said he thinks I'm ready to spar. He plans on putting me in the ring next week. Any useful tips for someone just about to begin sparring? I'm a bit anxious!
According to Alex:
Martin, that's the most fun part of training and in boxing sparring is the best way to measure one's improvement.
If your trainer is good and he thinks you are ready, you are!!! Just go and practice what you have learned. You'll figure out what you need to work on.
Being anxious is great! It will help you stay on your toes. Remember to listen to you corner, even if something doesn't make sense to you, because they see stuff that you don't. Have fun! Stick and move!!!
