Like other athletes, MMA fighters are committed to find and follow workouts that will give them full benefits and will help them achieve their goals. To fully achieve full potential and full benefits in conditioning and strength program, learn and use some useful tips in your training. Make sure you have your system. If you do not have specific plan or program, most probably you are just wasting your time. Be certain about your goals. Your goals will determine the length of time, intensity and circuit training that need to be performed to achieve these goals. If you want to be an MMA fighter, then most likely you will be training a longer time and will be performing various workouts at high intensity or level. It is not enough to just spend around seven weeks doing conditioning and strength program if you are going into a fight. If you do not have a fight or just wanted to be fit, then always think of what you can do to improve or develop your fitness and strength levels.
A mixed martial arts fighter needs to learn or be familiar with several disciplines such as boxing, jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, kickboxing, and wrestling. A fighter can even incorporate these all together if he wants to although this will take much of his time. He just needs to manage his time so he still can perform the conditioning and fitness program. Make sure to maximize every precious time that he has. When doing strength training, you can do movement patterns to train your entire body. You can perform lunge, squat, pull, twist and pull. You can perform these movements twice per week and you will notice the progress in the routine without over fatiguing yourself. For instance, you can do several known exercises such as bench press, Arnold press, reverse lunge and curl at day one. At day two, you can do chin-up, squat, skull crusher and one arm row. You can perform these repetitively depending on your goals. For more endurance in your muscles, you can repeat exercises ten to twelve times. If your goal is only for strength, then repeat exercise three to five times. A balance performance is seven to eight repeats for every set. The fewer the repeats and the heavier weights you use, the more and longer rest you want to have. You can also use medicine ball in your circuit training. Incorporating this will help you improve power and speed.
