my first mma fight in march

hey people i have been training in mma for 2 months. i am a lightweight but very very large for my weight i did powelifting for 4 years before mma but have allways been athletic. i have picket up the skills very quickly and am now holding my own very well ageinst the guys in my acedemy. i have decided to fight in an amiter contest early next year but am unsure of the rules. as far as im aware there are no head shots.

this has been my dream since i saw shamrock fight gracie i am sure i have what it takes but my cardio sucx does anyone know of any good cardio training i could do that wont take my power and explosiveness away the fact that im overpowering middleweights is one of my big advantages. i have the power and the natural ability to do well but i need the cardio as i dont want any weaknesses going in to the fight thx ps is there no amiter fights that allow head shots the no head shots rule. doesnt sit well im a ground and pount type of guy and i dont want to be stripped of it

GO ON SHAMROCK KNOCK HIS HAIR BLACK THEN SPANK HIS ASS AND IN THE LAST ROUND BEAT HIM INTO LIVIN DEATH LOL

Good luck, bro. I'm new to this myself. How old are you?
As for your question, I say you do a lot of jump roping. That's what most powerlifters I know of do for cardio (like Maruisz Pudianowsky. Might've mispelled that, lol).

Good luck again.

Nope, Jumproping, running ect are all pointless forms of cardio.

They only work your aerobic state, not anaerobic.

The only way to get better cardio is this.

Get a bunch of slaves/sparring partners/ect...

You go up and spar against one of them for 1 minute(standup) and then another minute(ground).

As soon as the two minutes is up, he leaves and you verse the second person (no breaks).

Do the same thing with the second through 5th person. No breaks in between.

Thats the first day. The next time, add 30 seconds. So it would be 1.5 min stand/1.5 min ground per person.

Increase it by 30 seconds each day.



This is the only way to work anaerboic glycolysis, which is what we use for energy during a fight. Jumping rope, and running are stupid.

Nah, that's not true. With hard work and perserverence, anything's possible. You'll do fine man, don't sweat it.

Well, I did a few years of Karate when I was younger(stopped when I was around 8-9). I started again like 6 months ago. I'm 16 now (Just turned 16 on Dec. 16 ). I take Muay Thai, Boxing, BJJ, and Karate. I'd like to compete someday. My real goal is self-defense though...probably going to start Krav Maga as soon as I'm good at those things, lol.

What I also want to do is weight train. I want to get as strong and fast as I possibly can. Lol, yeah, I dream too much.

Anyway, good luck man, I'm sure you'd do fine. Just jumprope a lot, hit the bags and just go all out on them for as long as you can, and spar a lot.

You should train for a full year in MMA before you think about an MMA fight even ametuer stuff.

no, thats not the only way and your approaching it wrong. Boxers train for conditioning with a heavy bag. Thats your best bet. Do a one hour cardio drill with a heavy bag high intensity. It simulates the conditions of a fight because you dont have to hold back. Try different combinations and work out different things.

I do 10 5 minute rounds with 1 minute breaks in between. One round I will focus on hooks one Ill focus on upper cuts another just kneeds then a 1 - 2 combo and then the rest are various combinations with kicks etc and doing it all with as much energy as I can. when your done you will be dead tired.

Also if you lift for mass start lifting for endurance because you need muscle indurance as well as streghnth. If you do a full body cirquit training routine youll build muscle stamina and combine your weights with cardio.

Sparring wise spar 5 minute rounds in striking mma or grappeling and have a 1 min brake and then have a guy thats fresh jump in
