New to MMA, looking for workout and tips.

I am looking into joining an MMA gym pretty soon, but seeing as I have a full time job at the moment and can't very well make the 630 class when i work 230-1030(all pm) I want to at least get in shape and maybe get some basics down before i get laid off and start taking up MMA classes.

very physically fit. I have been lifting weights and doing cardio 4 days a week for a few months, but it's mostly been hypertrophy which isn't beneficial in MMA. I am 6'3'' 185 lbs.

I want to take up MMA cause it's something I've been interested in since I finished hockey and would like it as a learning experience and great exercise, and also for the possibility to one day compete.

Any help with workouts would be greatly appreciated, and anyway I can start to learn the basics of striking and ground would be a great head start so I don't go running into the gym like a chicken with my head cut off.

Hey I was in the same boat 2-3 months ago. However for me I joined a mma gym and found out pretty quick that my cardio was not up to par. So I'd recommend the bas rutten tapes for the all around work out tape, and The Pit Workout 3 disc dvd set. If you are familiar with torrents you can find it free online. If not send me a message and I'll shoot you a link.

I would recommend you start doing some high intensity circuit training mixing plyometric based exercises such as squat jumps, burpees, box jumps etc alongside compound movements such as clean and presses,pull ups, barbell squats. Aim to work for 5-6 minutes per circuit and keep the rests down to 1 minute in between or slightly longer when you first start out. An example of a circuit is below, perform each exercise for 30 seconds and repeat the whole lot twice.
1: Babrbell clean and press
2: Burpees
3: Pull ups
4: Squat jumps
5: Press ups

Do you mean mma techniques or like strength and conditioning training?
