So if you just follow a general strength and conditioning routine or bodybuilding workout, you’re running the risk of overtraining, developing qualities that will conflict with your needs as a mixed-martial artist, and worst of all – injury.
When I work with a fighter, the first thing I have to do is a physical assessment, which tells me where they’re weak, and where they’re strong before we can embark on their MMa Training program.
Then, given the amount of time we have, I can prioritize what to train to maximize physical fitness come fight day.
But I have to balance this with the fighter’s current training schedule, work schedule, and partying!
Luckily, I’ve devised a simple formula for determining what exercises to do,and all the little details in between like # of sets, reps, order of exercises, tempo, and more, so that the mma strength and conditioning work doesn’t interfere with the mma skills training.
