There is a decent amount of information available regarding strength and conditioning for mixed martial artists – some good, and a lot bad.
It’s time to change that. My goal with MMA Fight Prep is to educate coaches and fighters on how to properly prepare to step in the cage.
Lets imagine this scenario for a minute:
2 fighters are on the cage ready for battle. They have equal skill, reach and training background.
Fighter #1 doesn’t strength train much, isn’t very strong and doesn’t do any extra conditioning besides sparring.
Fighter #2 can deadlift more than 2x bodyweight, he can perform strict pull-ups with 50+ lbs, he trains 3 days a week on developing his explosiveness and has better grip strength than fighters 30 lbs heavier than him.
Now, if you have to bet your life savings on one of these fighters, who would it be? Fighter #1 or fighter #2?
I think we both know the answer, its common sense right?
Train hard, Train smart!!
