Good workouts to do in the gym. Noob here!!

I would eventually like to start training in MMA, but im waiting for my gym subscription to expire. But in the meantime, what are some good workouts and for what muscle groups? What will help me increase my speed/endurance rather than my strenth? How strong in general should i look to be at 180-190 lbs to be competive? I can bench about 225, not a full 10 reps but getting there and i can curl sets of over 100lbs( i can pick up someone in my face by their underarms), just for some benchmarks. So basically what muslces should i be looking to train, how important is overall strength and what workouts can i use to get my speed and endurance up before i actually begin training? Thanks!

eh, there is alot to explain based on your post. But im just going to highlight some things that will help you and some things I did when I started out.

1. Get your diet good, diet is important when training
2. Start taking a multi vitamin and fish oil and maybe some whey protein
3. Focus on your cardio, running, swimming, plyometrics etc
4. Continue to lift but curling 800lbs or benching 800lbs isnt going to be that helpful in mma. Benching,curling etc is more for bodybuilding and looking cut up
5. Find a local personal trainer or something to discuss actual workouts
6. Find a MMA gym in your area and discuss these things with the owners/trainers

I hve not been exercising to try to get straonger just to maintain my current condition. I was just saying i feel that i am strong enough for my weight for the time being. I really just want to work on getting my foot and punching speed up because i feel they are lacking. Ive been doing a lot of jogging and biking for cardio too. I will get more into it when i start to train. My morning job ends when the summer begins in a month or so so i will have free time/energy to put in what i need

Like I said Plyos will help build up that "speed" you want in certain areas, check out the internet cause there are a good amount of exercises to help speed and power
