I tried that sprawl drill, Really gets the heart goin and works the whole of the body.
Doing some heavy badwork was mentioned, I still try to do alot of bag work in a boxing type of way would that be sufficient? I mean i add the elbows and stuff in on certain rounds. But when i hit the bad i just do 10x3 with 1 min in between! Would that be enough or do i need to do more?
Anotha Q, if you didnt have a training partner at your disposal, but you had a person who wouldnt be much help as a fighter is there any way u could use them in your training??? (as i have my younger brother who isnt into training, but he weighs a good 200lbs, so its a bit of weight to move about if you know what i mean!)
may help a little in your training.. but if you want to get better you need someone who is at least your skill level or better to really imrpove preferably better... but he if he is willing allow you to try move so you can work on your technique just don't hurt him.

well everyone always says how they train with bigger stronger people and how that helps them ( i do as well)

thats really the only way he can help, his bigger size woul dbe good for you to practice moving him around and pusing him off you.

other then that, you really need somone who knows something, somone who can counter or break your moves as you try to apply them, if wont help you if somone just lets you do the move on them. Even if they fight back there wont be anything technical about it, they can defend and armbar no apply it...etc etc.

Thumbs up

agreed bro, but at the moment that aint really an option!
I mean do u think there is ANYTHING u could do that would be productive with someone who doesnt know any MMA?
do you rekon therd be any point in letting him try to take me down, and try to avoid it?
He is however, very good at doing padwork, so do you think my time would be better spent trying to work on my hands?

yea if he got no real skills to challenge you no point.. unless it is to help him train.. the one advantage is you can learn self control.. if you were to grapple with him.. it would be up to you to prevent either of you from getting really hurt.. he would get better by being outclassed.. you would get better because you would be concentrating more on proper execution of the moves and technique and self control... so there is slight advantage plus he may be a natural and make you tap ya never know.. but yea also do the pad work as well...
