MMA Nutrition and training
Alright, for starters I am 170 punds, 5'9 about 13%bf. I train Kickboxing and BJJ. Anyways my goal is to gain muscle, loose weight, and be in best shape for MMA.
I know the basics of nutrition such as eat 5-6 times a day. High protein, healthy fat and most slow digestive carbs in the morning and fast digestive post workout. But how many calories should I eat a day and any good ideas for pre/post workout.
What type of workout should I do in order to gain weight,loose muscle and be in great shape for MMA. I know HIT is great for loosing weight and improving cardio but should I be doing Body-Building workouts on the days that I don't do MMA and if so is that giving my body enough time to recover.
(If there is a website can you post the link)
Thanks in advance

I noticed you said gain weight and lose muscle. If you start to lose muscle you have a problem. Losing fat is a good thing the best advice I had was just eat right just like you said. It all depends on how much time you have. There is no 'perfect' fix workout as everyones bodies are different. They key is finding what works for you.
