new to mma, have a question
Hello all,

Ive had about 2 years of TKD experience and im going to be joining an mma gym for training and sparring. I dont know about you guys, but back at home i would always be practicing some stretches and exercises that would compliment what i was learning.

So what im asking is if there are any exercises you guys have that really help out with mma training. Hopefully something that doesnt require any weights (like types of push ups or sit ups) thats work the parts of the body best for mma.

Thanks in advance.

Also, i do some pretty intense stretching everyday, would that be beneficially for mma or not really make a difference?

try combat conditioning by Matt furey... the book is very cheap and you only use your bodyweight. You can do them anywhere... you can go to to find it or let me know if you want a direct link to the product

Well. MMA is something different from TKD, or Karate ,or Boxing.It has actually a huge difference from one to the other. MMA contains the use of almost every muscle in your body and of-course u;ll need to do some weight training , because u need to built your upper body as well in MMA.

u'll have to do something more than push-ups.
However, u can start at least by doing, 3 set, OF 20 push-ups, For-let me think-,3 round every day for at least 1-2 weeks before going seriously for it.

It's not that hard.It's just that it is another class from what u were doing soo far.

Have fun and try your best men. :thumbsup:
