Early Morning Conditioning okay?

Hi guys,

Because of my tight schedule, I am forced to do my typical conditioning circuit (which consists of the usual press ups, sit ups, dips, burpees, squats etc.) early in the morning.

My question is: Has anyone tried this before and has it worked out okay?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, that's fine, but make sure to eat a light snack before doing it, then eat breakfast after.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. I'm not looking to tone up or anything; I'm looking to become a better and stronger all round fighter. Just some extra info: I'll be doing the conditioning circuits on the day I do MMA training (i.e. heavy bag, pads, takedown drills etc.), so on the days I do strength workouts, I'll have my full strength. This should be okay right?

Yes, that sounds good. Do you need any help with a strength routine?

Firstly, thanks for the help!

My strength routine utilizes a sandbag only (no barbells, I feel a sandbag is better for MMA!) which consists of all the major lifts, including: Deadlifts, Clean and Press, Squats (Back and Zeacher), Power Clean Throws and Bent Over Rows: each for 6 reps, for 3 sets.

Does this look okay for a strength routine? Have I missed out any strength compound exercises?

Thanks.
