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
