more Training Q's

ok say my mma gym offers circuit conditioning on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and those would be my lifting days. Should I stop lifting at my house and go condition here with these guys since I want to be a fighter? I did one today and its pretty damn hard. It is strength training too but felt more like cardio, so better for someone who wants to fight?

Yes, I would say so. Muscular endurance/cardio is more important than strength training in my opinion.

well on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I want to do strength and conditioning. Im training to fight in MMA and at my MMA gym they have circuit conditioning classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It's hard to decide myself since my strength and my conditioning are at the same level, neither is lacking. I spoke with the trainer at the MMA gym and he wants me to train there and he would progress me along as he saw fit because he knows I want to fight. Would you suggest training at my MMA gym with the guys or doing my own work? If I was training at my house on these days it would be more strength oriented, while at the MMA gym its as much strength as it is cardio conditioning. Since I want to fight in MMA, would you always suggest putting in the conditioning and work at the MMA gym first and only do my own extra stuff if I find the time?

Definitely train at the MMa gym with other people. Train there as often as you can.
