doing front raises because it’s a “boxer muscle” is very short sighted. Lats are a boxer muscle too because they help you retract your punch. Triceps are a boxer muscle because you snap the end of your punch with it. Do I need to do rubber band extensions with my big toe because i start my straight right from there.
I hope you get my point.
You CAN train for specific localized muscular endurance but that’s some in your free time type shit. And honestly there are better ways to go about it. It also shouldn’t be include in your STRENGTH training thats more conditioning based. If you increase the efficiency in your technique a lot of that can be eliminated.
For a fight, Especially a MMA fight, It’s not enough cardio and not nearly specific enough. If you’re really set on doing something for your front delts you can definitely pick a better exercise.
If I were you i’d work on improving my overall relative strength dips, pullups, squats and deadlifts. Thats about it. And spend the rest of my time skill training and conditioning.
read the free articles from those sites and you really can’t go wrong with stuff they recommend. I don’t mean this as an insult, so please don’t take it that way, but I think you’re a bit misguided with some of your training philosophies. That stuff is complicated or whatever, but you’re not using it in an efficient manner. MMA is a sport of skill and attributes you need to know what attributes you need to improve/maintain and train specifically for those. It’s a lot to explain and there are a LOT of threads already on this site regarding how to train for MMA because that’s basically what you’re asking
start with the: “how to train” thread, it’s a sticky.
search for the other one’s.
As far as MMA being expensive. I thought so too till someone (on this forum I believe) put it in perspective for me. It’s really not that much more expensive than other hobbies (and believe me unless you’re getting paid to do it that’s all it is), Golf or Tennis are vastly more expensive. You can spend more one night at a strip club. Most of the costs aren’t reoccurring if you buy high quality (gloves, etc) The only reoccurring expenses are gym fee’s. But yes i understand it’s pricey. Just depends how much of a priority it is to you. If you want to be able to eat off of that shit then prioritize it like that.
about crazy monkey, it looks simular to the boxing that I have been seeing from people like rampage and tito the way they defend punches I mean. I use alot of the defense movements naturally anyway as my stance is a lil wider then most.
To me and now this isn’t to start a long winded debate however I think that the exersices I picked are very sport specific, and here is why:
with the inno sports system the exercises you do are done with in a specific time bracket anaerobic 1 (0-9 sec), anaerobic 2 (10-25sec),aerobic 1 (50- 100 sec)
working in those time brackets any exercise can be considered a strength, explosive, or endurance exercise. however adding a method to the exercise, it becomes even more specific.
for example with front raises I con prefer it for strength in the front delt by you the PIM method at the anaerobic 1 bracket. for increasing explosiveness, I could you OI method. again in the an1 bracket. and lets say for endurance in that muscle I could use the PIM method again however instead of the an1 bracket I would go to the aerobic 1 bracket and work from in there.
now all that being said I understand were you are coming from and that there are better exercises I could be using for my program and I will take that into account.
as far as my cardio is considered I have never had a problem with my cardio in the past I train for the long post meaning that I train in case it does go to the distance. I have always focused on being relaxed in the ring I can say it saves soo much energy. however I will start adding tempo work to increase my energy systems, but running will be minimal, and the tempo wirk will be very in sport specific.
thanks for taking the time to help out and give your insight.
also do you use crazy monkey, I would love to use it but I don’t see any specific strategies or techniques to use other then how to market your system.
man I have bills and debt… I have to take things in stride I understand that if its something I want to do I need to suck it up… but I have to keep my life in order and I can’t afford it right now…
