This MMA workout routine is designed to build fast twitch muscle fibers, explosive strength, and increased agility and speed - all necessary ingredients for Mixed Martial Arts fighters. Fighting specific movements are emphasized on a 3 day a week workout schedule with this MMA weight training workout plan set up to work best in coordination with an additional 3+ days of fight/sparring training time.
Since any legitimate UFC workout/MMA conditioning workout needs to build strength but also improve cardiovascular fitness this plan uses a lot of supersets with minimal rest time. With most MMA rounds lasting anywhere from 1 minute to 5 minutes then the varying levels of supersets in this workout are specifically designed to condition your nervous system and your muscles for intense levels of exertion of between 1 minute to 5 minutes at a time with breaks of 1 minute in between.
MMA training is by necessity very intense so if you are new to weight training then you can certainly begin this MMA workout schedule but it is recommended that you start slow before jumping into the full workout as this is an advanced level workout. But hey, if you want to call yourself an MMA fighter then you aren't going to be scared of a little workout routine are you?
If you want a great MMA training routine then this is the plan for you. While progressing through this plan it is important to remember that great MMA fighters like Georges St Pierre, Brock Lesnar, Matt Hughes, Randy Couture, and others don't get their battle ready bodies with just great MMA workouts alone but a great MMA diet plan on top of their training. Eat right, lift hard, and train hard and this MMA workout routine will give you great quickness, strength, and stamina in the octagon, ring, or dark alley.
