All you need is bicycle crunches and pressups.

To increase your power, you are going to need to be stronger, but not just stronger. Your punch will need to have more speed and explosiveness to it. There is not just on kind of training you can do to be successful in this sport or lifestyle. If you just want more power and a big bench press, go into power lifting, but in this sport, it is not about how much you bench or squat, but how well you can incoorperate your speed, size, power, and explosiveness into one package. It's great to excel at one of these, but without the others involved your screwed.

After that ramble, contact ironman in the training forum and he is good about hooking up people with great training programs fitting there goals.

Im 5'10" 143lbs with 70" reach I bench about 215lbs on a good day. Is that good? or should I kept getting stronger or try more reps with less weight? I want to be able to manhandle someone my size for like 15 minutes straight.

There is no specific amount of weight you SHOULD be benching. The best way to improve your bench is to improve your strength first. My suggestion would be to find a weight that you can do a set of 10 with, and do that for 3 reps. Do this for a week or two and you should notice and increase already, keep doing this until you're at a sufficient weight then you can start mixing it up and doing heavier lifts with less reps and so forth. And bench pressing isnt important for fighting, but its the best chest excericse to build mass and strength and also uses your shoulders and triceps immensely.




What a stud

In mma at least 125% of your body weight is were you should be at lifting. But don't forget your deadlift, squat, powercleans and pushpresses. These are all important exercises for total body strength and explosiveness.
