Conor McGregor performs pull-ups with weighted chain tied around his GROIN while sporting plastic boot and crutches after horror leg break

He’s been hobbling around in a cast and crutches after breaking his leg during a boxing match against Dustin Poirier in July.

And Conor McGregor, 33, while still recovering from his injury, took to Instagram on Wednesday to give fans a glimpse into his rather unusual training methods.

In the snaps, the UFC titan sported a black polo shirt and an extremely tight pair of khaki shorts, allowing for a weight-clad chain to tie around his groin.

In an accompanying video, the Irishman made his way to a pull-up apparatus before dropping his crutches and proceeding to lift himself up and down.

He performed the painful-looking pull ups while Bruno Mars’ Versace on the Floor blasted over a speaker.

Conor sported a black cast on his left foot and a white Gucci slide on his right, along with a blingy gold watch on his wrist.

‘Improvise. Adapt. Overcome. @mcgregorfast @tidlsport,’ he wrote in the caption while plugging his own sports recovery line and workout app.

Conor’s extreme training regime comes just under a month after suffering a broken tibia during his fight with Dustin Porrier during the main event of UFC 264 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The fight was the long-awaited rubber match, or trilogy match, with McGregor winning the first fight by TKO in the first round in September 2014.

Porrier won the second fight in January via TKO in the second round during UFC 257 in January, with the trilogy fight taking place last month.

He won by TKO after the doctor stopped the bout after the first round, after it was revealed that the fighter broke his tibia.

It’s unclear when McGregor may be able to fight again, though his road to recovery is believed to be a long one.

McGregor took to social media after surgery and said: ‘Just out of the surgery room, everything went to plan, everything went perfect and I’m feeling tremendous. 

‘We’ve got six weeks on a crutch now and then we begin to build back.

‘A clean break of the tibia and it was not to be. Dustin, you can celebrate that illegitimate win all you want but you’ve done nothing in there. 

‘That second round would have shown all,’ he added.
