Whats your training like?

Just curious how everyone trains, be it for a fight or regular work outs.

Ive always been a cardio type guy, sprint style running and heavey lifting to create quick power strength. Ive never been one for high reps, but lots of weight.

What about you guys

Training

I used to go with really heavy weights combined with cardio...cardio six days a week in the mornings, weights in the afternoon four or five days a week. I was 255 lbs, at 6'2', and could hit really hard but found my stamina sucked. Then I switched to cardio six days and weights only three days, and less weights with more reps. Went down to 205 lbs, and I felt a LOT stronger, still hit plenty hard enough and had a lot more stamina. So, I don't know, that's just how it worked for me, everyone is different I guess. I also found diet can really make a difference in how strong a person feels. I went on a veg diet for six months, but used a lot of protein powder, and felt kinda weak at times, not sure why. Was really ripped and could work out for hours, but just didn't feel as good somehow, so maybe there's other stuff in meats besides protein that help?

Hmm.

IMO the best way to improve Cardio is to skip. If you haven't trained Cardio, I'll be impressed if you could skip for 15 minutes nonstop. Start with that, every other day. And then Do it every day.. Then every day for 20 minutes.. And keep going up. Also, I suggest Pushups on your palms.. Then when you can do 25 of them easy. Go to your fingertips.. Then, when you can do 25 easy, take away one finger.. ANd keep going until you are only on your thumb...

Brute Theory

OK, some of you might not believe this, but when i started i took a pretty single minded approach to fight training. My philosophy is simple: If you want to be better, practice. If you want to be a better fighter, practice fighting.Here's my every other day regimen:
30 minutes of uninterupted boxing w gloves (for striking form)
30 minutes of uninterupted boxing w/o gloves (for knuckle conditioning)
20 minutes of pounding wrestling practice w a bag
20 minutes of take down practice (taking down and taking hits)
Sample fight sparring with sparring gear (standard UFC fight regulations)
On the off days i do combat conditioning (only using my body weight) and 20 minutes of cardio to keep in shape.

I am very new to the world of mma.( just a few months into) I feel I have excellent coaches where I am at.
I want to do everything perfect, I might train on 2 different things for the whole night.(2 hours) then we might hit the mats for a while just to get used to sparring.

really watch fights there is no such thing as being perfect its more like just making the fewest mistakes and taking advantage of your opponents mistakes he may only make one and you need to be ready to capatilize on it

Good luck.

No offence, but I doubt there is any why to do everything "perfect" haha. But good luck!
