Today’s MMA fighters are strong, fast and powerful. They understand the importance of following an established training program in order to be ready for the ring. Since MMA combines jiu-jitsu, Greco-Roman wrestling and boxing, every muscle needs to be strong, in addition to which you need super-quick reaction times and high endurance levels.

Here are some of the best MMA fitness tips to help your body reach these goals.

Train in Short Rounds

Since the typical round of an MMA fight is three minutes, training harder in shorter times gives your body the optimal workout for a fight. You also do not have the time to chat with the person next to your or check your phone for messages. By training explosively, your body will become accustomed to giving its all for those three minutes.

Train Your Whole Body at Every Workout

While most fitness tips will tell you to work major muscle groups every other day or so, when you are training for MMA fighting, you should work your entire body every time you workout. This may mean that you only workout two to three days a week.

This is one reason that MMA fighters have such balanced physiques. It also gives your body a chance to repair itself before the next workout. There is also more time to work on technique if you are only in the gym two to three times a week. This does not mean that you cannot include cardio exercises everyday, but hard training should be limited. This is one of the best fitness tips you will find.

Train in Every Aspect of Fitness

The great MMA fighters train in all areas of fitness, including muscle-building, endurance, cardio, flexibility and strength. Since MMA is such a physically intensive sport, any area that isn’t up to par will likely give your opponent an edge. For example, you may have the strength of a hundred men but if it only lasts a minute and a half in a round, you are probably going to get beat. You must have a high level of endurance, too. Flexibility is also crucial to help you get out of holds and keep from getting injured.

In Closing

It’s easy to see why MMA fighters need to be in the best complete physical shape possible. If not, their career as a fighter can be over quickly – not only due to a loss in the ring, but also due to injury. The right fitness tips can help you develop your body to its absolute best. Make sure you combine a good MMA nutritional plan with your fitness program to get the best results.
