Training at home?

I'm desperate to start MMA, but I kind of want to work at it at home before I get into a gym. I want to at least get into shape before I try the real thing you know. So is there any suggestions of anything you can do at home? Either to help cardio or stength? I have a decent amount of weights so I can work out that way. I'm thinking of getting a jump rope (and teaching myself to jump rope lol) and a punchbag. Any suggestions?

Stick with general fitness excercises. BWE stuff like push-ups, crunches, jump squats. Then running, jump rope isn't a bad idea either. Weight lifting I'd go for muscle endurance training (more repetitions with lesser weight). Just get in general shape, any MMA specific stuff you should train at an MMA-gym under supervision of a trainer.

If you don't know how to strike correctly, stay away from the heavy bag. You would get accustomed to false motions which will be hard to correct afterwards.

The last thing you wanna do is walk in a gym out of shape and looking like a puss!!!

Nothing wrong at all with getting in shape at home till you reach a point where you feel like you are not getting enough from home workoutsor could benefit more from a gym setting....

Good Luck...

Voiceless, yeah I had a set I was doing of alot of all over body weights, small weight but repitition, sit ups, push ups and then shadown boxing. I did kick boxing for a bit and I tried to copy yhe set of shadow boxing and striking that we learned in there, so I've only been doing that. You know anywhere to find a specific rookie routine or anything?

Coldcall, exactly. I'd be out of breath in minutes and years of getting high and drinking isn't exactly great for your physical abilities and appearance. Thats why I posted this, so I can spend maybe a year or two getting myself together before I actually go to a gym and try it out.
