Childhood and teenage years
Mukhtar was born on 20 may 1964 in Izerbash, Dagestan. His family was in poverty: his father and older brother basically sat in prison, the mother could not feed the children, and the little lassie herding cattle. In fact, he grew up a drifter and homeless. Nobody did, nobody cared before. To survive, Mukhtar had committed a petty theft in stores.
In adolescence, he fell in with bad company and went to the reformatory. However, soon released him, and he went to serve in the army. After the return of Mukhtar has become a participant in street fights, and this time took a long time – he was given 3 years in prison.
Term served completely, all the while thinking about the changes in yourself and your life. Just in prison Mukhtar began developing its own set of workouts and exercises.
Freed, Gusengajiev got an unpleasant job to clean out the barns and stables in Siberia. But then, he has formed a specific goal: to go to Moscow.

In a relatively short time he has developed spiritually: he studied several foreign languages, play the guitar, learned the techniques of pantomime, increased the level in acrobatics and seriously interested in martial arts – Taekwondo, karate, kung fu, Hatha yoga etc.
All this time he did not have to seek the services of traditional medicine. Mukhtar even proved doctors what is, in essence, a sprain is not an injury, showing it on your body. X-rays revealed no pathology.
Truly a landmark for him came in 1995, when the Championship of Russia on a kickboxing plastic its stunning rooms between fights he praised the legendary Jean-Claude van Damme!

Indeed, Mukhtar – a normal person with her, though, features. In his house the furniture is very small – it does not use a chair or sofa. If he needs rest, that is the record holder on the floor. There, sitting or lying down, he is engaged in business as usual: reading, talks, talking on the phone or sitting on the Internet.
Every day at least an hour an actor spends training. Barely awake – to get up and he has a habit of not later 10 am – the first thing Mukhtar leads to the movement of your body and spirit. Breakfast, morning shower, other things – all then. A special diet, as restrictions in types of food. «The snake man» says that eating all what you want in the moment, and not drive themselves into the framework. But with the extra weight from Mukhtar absolutely no problems with performance.
