Default MMA training

Hey so anyhow some friends and i are starting to mess around with the idea of training MMA (mixed martial arts) and what not. Anywhow im trying to figure out what would be a good way to work out / excersie during the week to better prep my body for this. Im looking for diffrent cardio lifts and stretches u guys would possibly suggest. I belive ive seen someone talking on here about them doing it. was a while ago i think so anyways i was hoping yall can point me in the right direction. That would be so great


Thanks again in advance.

This is actually a pretty involved question. What you want when it comes to MMA is strength-endurance, or in other words, using your maximal output over an extended peroid of time.

There are a few threads in the training section that deal with strength-endurance programs but the main draw back is this: When you actively train for SE, your maximal strength output will not increase.

With that said, what I am doing is using the bill starr 5x5 program to bring my strength up first, then utilizing an SE program to see gain in that area.

Now if your just begining to "play" with MMA, there really is no reason to worry about this kind shit. Just go an have fun, work on technique, and get into it. when you feel as though you need to suppliment that (for competition or otherwise) then look into SE training.

^^ very true. If you're only "messing" around no need to be very strict with it.

If you go on youtube you will find mountains of information about MMA training. I'm sure if you type in MMA or strength endurance in the search section of this forum, you'll find what you need.
Also, if you want to change up some cardio. Get a duffle bag from an army store, some duct tape, zip lock bags, and some sand, make some sandbags and wrap them up in duct tape so it has less of a chance to break and start sand bag training. or by them here

anything you can do with weights you can to with a sandbag. Also, you can use a lot of the same exercises that you do with a kettlebell, with a sandbag.

Also, this is a good approach to getting the best of both worlds when it comes to strength and SE.
I'm going to start a journal using this layout soon. The only reason I haven't' yet is because of work and I have a grappling competition this weekend and I've just been working on endurance for the past 2 weeks. 4 more pounds before I make the 200lbs division. Time to lose the last couple of pounds.
