Newbie needs advice

Hey whats up guys, my name is Chris and I live in texas. I have just found a bad ass mma gym where I live and I will be starting my training at the first of next month. I have about a month till then and was wondering if you guys that have been in the game a while could drop me a couple of hints on how to get myself in better all around shape to begin my training. I know a month is not a long time and I am in pretty good shape now I usually hit the gym between four and five days a week but I know that working out for mma and bodybuilding are alot different so if you have any help on what excersizes I could do to better my mma game then it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Do lots of running, sprinting, uphill running, and burpees. You may wanna check out rosstraining.com as well for some good useful stuff to build strength and conditioning from your house

well i appreciate any advice, I looked at the rosstraining which looked pretty promising and I appreciate it but is there anything else that I can be studying or practicing or any type of conditioning work that will get me in bad ass shape before I start my mma training next month?

Personally, I suggest doing alot of bodyweight training for now. There are a dozen pushup variations, and you should probably be able to do 50 of each (ideally in a row) to be in really bad ass shape. Things like a wide-arm push, tight elbow pushup (great for side control escapes), hindu pushup, hand together pushup (great for defending against the mount) and standard pushups.

Also, burpees have already been mentioned, but they're worth mentioning again. Squats are good, though a burpee covers that movement even a little better.

Running is good, sprints are better than long distance stuff.

Pull ups and lat lifting is good.

All of this is pretty standard. You can't do more advanced drills until you have a coach to really show you how they are done or until you have a training partner.

Good luck with your training.
