New fighter
 
I'm entering my first organized MMA fight in August. I've been in Martial Arts for 12 years and been seriously weight training for 8. Since i've decided to go back to fighting i'm droping weight to be able to fight at 170lbs. I'm currently 5'7 190lbs and pretty lean. Anyone have any diet, cardio, and strength training regimens that would be good? My diet I think would be a good starter. Always been on the brink of a six pack but never could close the deal.

If your 190 and pretty lean, and you want to drop 20 pounds thats about 11% of your bodyweight. You will have hard problems doin this. You also have about 3 months to do this in.

Heres a diet for 3 months

With cardio you want to perform it about an 1 - 2 hours after breakfast, If your performing weightloss try HIIT. This is the site for this.

Strength training keep up what you are doing.

depending on your body fat index you may be sacraficing muscle to do this, this also would mean a strength and energy decrease make sure you really want to go that low, and make sure 11% ( as previously stated ) of your overall weight can be lost due to getting rid of excess fat, you might have better results packing on muscle and strength and going up or staying with in your weight class.

Oh and since I forgot to say it before, Good luck see if you can not get some video of the fight.

My advice is if you are 5'7" 190 and still lean, don't try cutting weight unless you absolutly think you HAVE to fight at 170. I've been fighting 155s for a while and I never need to cut weight, fight where you feel comfortable and if you feel like the reach disadvantage is a problem, go to the ground. I have a reach disadvatage and I'm your height and fight 155s.

Good luck and give us some video when it's all done.
