If youre training for MMA I would cut down the bicep work. There is not really a reason to do barbell and dumb bell incline press. Pick one. I like most of it, but you have no squats or deadlifts, if you plan on getting the fight to the ground, or keeping it standing- avoiding the take down, I would highly recommend both of them. Most MMA fighters (at least from what I know so take it with a grain of salt) focus on compound and explosive movements, so the chins, benching, PP, C+P are all real solid, it just seems like there is a lot of iso work. What is your experience with weight training? If you dont have a lot I would recommend a simpler program, like a 5x5 with progressive overload. Also look into olympic moves, very good for generating explosive power with your hips. How is your diet?

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
