He eats like a baby, sleeps and even trains like a baby. This means he does whatever he wants and whenever he wants, just like a baby who has no set time to do a particular thing.
So, we can’t list here a set routine because there isn’t any.
He wakes up, drinks a glass of water, does some stretching and then starts his day. Conor hits the gym and does whatever he feels like. He even attends the classes of Taekwondo, jiu-jitsu, Capoeira, yoga, etc. He also does boxing. He doesn’t do all that in a single day. He keeps bringing variation by introducing all these things in his daily life to stay miles away from boredom.
His diet is pretty much a Paleo diet. But, he is also a meat lover.
As he has a sweet tooth, his cheat day would include a coffee and cake.
