I was looking at what you said about your strength and conditioning program you are on. Free weights are good, but you need to do lower weights with really high reps. You want your workout to feel as close to sprinting as possible. This is the best way to get your body ready for the strain of being in the cage. Instead of running before you lift, start running after. So your body is already sore, and you have to push yourself when you are tired to maintain that pace all the way through. The best workout for mma is circuit training. It is easy to do in a gym with weights. Set up some stations, and instead of doing all your sets on one lift, do one set at one station. Then immediately move to the next station and make a full circuit of it. Go through it as many times as you would do sets at each station. Hope this helps. I see your last post was in march. How is the training going?
