Arrow Just getting back in to training after an injury

Hi guys! I'm Liam, 19 from the UK. I've been doing MMA for about 6 months all together but just had to have about 1.5 months off due to an injury to my hips. I was gutted because I was supposed to have my first fights in a Grapple and Strike League (Under 65kg weight class) a couple of weeks ago.

Anyway I had my first session back today and my conditioning seems to have gone right down the toilet since I've been off. I have a bit of a spare tyre around my middle too which looks disgusting.

So I'm back in MMA just twice per week for now, I'm doing rock climbing/bouldering once per week then going to the gym once per week to do weights.

Do you think some long distance running would help me get my conditioning back up and get rid of a bit of extra fat?

I was devastated at the state of my conditioning today so I am hyper motivated to get back on it and show all the new starters that have come to the club since I left who's boss!


Any adive or tips would be appreciated Cheers!

I would suggest doing some interval training instead of long distance running. This type of training is not only a great calorie burner but also more beneficial for your MMA training. What type of training you doing in the gym. I would look at circuit training as a way to improve your conditioning.

Right ok, I'm thinking of doing interval training as you suggested but I have to get ready for selection for the Army in September so I do need to do some long distance-ish running too. Maybe one week do interval twice, long distance once then the next week do long distance twice and interval once?

In the gym I'm doing just big compound lifts to build up some strength and pack on the weight I've lost. My MMA training consists largely of circuits and sparring so I think getting back to that 2-3 times per week should be enough to help with the fitness.

What do you think?

Sounds like you have a good routine worked out so stick with that and see how you get on. All the best with it.
