4 days a week on the mat should be ok, I'm improving quite a bit with only 3 days. If you want to turn pro you may need to step up your technique work, probably with more light drill days on the mat where you're not rolling hard, but for ammy 4 days a week should be fine.

Id say really you only need 2 S&C sessions a week and spend more time on technique, perhaps do the day classes if they do them instead of weights everyday, you will get more athletic strength, wrestling, rolling clinching etc. Weights dont represent the strength needed for mma but obviousely help.


#6

You look like you're doing basically what I'm doing, except swap the ground-work and stand-up.

How much do you weigh? How tall?

My lifts are virtually identical to yours as well, and I'd like to start competing in the next six months or so, but I think even getting down to 185, at a tad under 5'11" I'll be on the short end.
