From Boxing to MMA


boxed for a long time but am switching it up to mma...ive been out the fighting game about a year in which time ive gained about 45 pounds mostly muscle doing free weights religiously the last year.....trying to build a program with less on bodybuilding and more on building power,explosivness, but still hopefully keep putting on some muscle.....

i was thinking this mabye mwf....flat barbell bench 5/5, deadlift 5/5,squat 5/5, clean&press 4/6,dips and chins 4 sets max out bodyweight any advice is appreciated


First question you should ask yourself is the weight gain is good thing with regards to your weight class that you would compete. You don't want to be on the bottom of the totem pole of you class.
