How many of you here are participants (for amusement/self defense or as your job) in mixed martial arts?
I’m just curious as to what you do as your workout (weight lifting and skill training).
As soon as I get a sponsor I’d like to go pro (probably by next year).
I am a lot more serious about training so I was hoping for some proper navigation.
Currently I’m going to be doing just skill training(2-3hr,6x a week), and trying to pack on some mass for the next year.
The following programs are what I’m more than likely going to be doing:
Re-Evaluate and move on from there.
Lately I’ve been doing mainly a hybrid between O-lift and Gymnastic type workouts (consisted of mainly pullups dips, power cleans and drop snatches). Got my ideas from my prior gymnastic experience and Dan John’s website (and a buddy of mine who O-lifts)…While I gained size and accomplished some goals (OH squat 15x w/ bodyweight)…I think to gain the appropriate muscle mass I should go with a more hypertrophy specific workout.
Its going to he hard balancing out conditioning with gaining mass (calorie in/calorie out). At Boxing I’m going to cut down on the jumping rope, and only do sprint intervals every few days. Wrestling I’m not going to absolutely kill myself every practice.
Give 100% but try not to wear myself down to a nub.
I am currently 148-150. I cut weight to 130 for a Pankration event (didn’t want to fight my training partner in the same weight class (155). I got up to 170 this summer while training for Track, and mma, by just doing QD back to back (to back)… a mistake, I burned out pretty bad… that was training hard with a shitty diet. I know (now that my diet is in order) that I can get up to 180-185 damn easily.
So…I guess what I’m saying is…Help?
