New need help

Hey everyone,

I am from Ireland and love MMA recently got a boxers fracture from street fighting it repaired took 6 weeks.Two weeks ago i was street fighting again and got the same break expect shattered i have a full cast on and waiting 4 weeks for the repair.I have decided to start trying for MMA as I am sick of getting in trouble and want to have something which I can focus on I have done the GYM for 1 year mostly strength training some cardio.Now I want to start MMA training as soon as my fracture is repaired i am just wondering is there anyone here doing MMA after the same break.

Here are some of the Question's I want to ask.

1 : I am 18 and only have exp in boxing which i done for 6 months am I too old to start now with such little exp.

2 : Will i always have problems with my hand if i start MMA.

3 : How long should I go to the gym for before my fitness will be ok to start MMA as I am very unfit at this time.Cause i have been out of the gym 3 months now.

4 : I am 6Ft+ big build what would i be best to focus on in MMA.

Thanks guys hope you can help

i can't help you out much on questions 1,2,or really question 4 but as far as question 3 I have been told in my research and posts that just getting into an MMA gym is a decent way to get into shape for it but I personally plan to start a new workout running intervals a few days a week and doing body weight exercises a few days a week as well.

Since you boxed previously I would suspect it won't take much for you to get back into swing of things unlike myself (college and a girlfriend ruined a few years of my life )

as for question 4, I myself am 6' 4" and around 240 lbs. I am planning to take Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well as Muay Thai KickBoxing once i do get into decent shape.

like i said I don't know much and am not the most knowledgeable just offering what i have been told by others. hope it may help you

1. Definitely not too old. I had experience in other stuff like wrestling, JKD and other sports but I started MMA at 27.
2. Everybody heals different. Take the time and do the physical therapy.
3. Starting MMA is a great way to get into shape. Make sure you stretch alot. Talk to coaches at the gym and tell them where you are at in training.
4. Start with what interests you and go from there. If you don't like what you are doing you won't stick with it.
Creatine can help keep from losing too much muscle while in a cast. Hope this helps.
