View Full Version : Training for MMA fight

My sub wrestling/MMA coach has told me he can get me an MMA fight whenever I feel ready provided I give him enough warning. I'm going to ask him on monday and hopefully I'll be able to get a fight for three months time or so. Anyway, if I do I'll need to change my training a bit, mainly cutting back on the weights a bit and put more time into sparring and cardio. This is a provisional plan that I'd like you guys to critique if possible:

Monday:
AM - Weights
PM - sub wrestling/MMA

Tuesday:
AM - Cardio (circuit training)

Wednesday:
AM - Weights
PM - BJJ/MMA

Thursday:
AM - Cardio (circuit training)
PM - Boxing followed by Judo

Friday:
AM - Weights
PM - Boxing

Weekend:
Open mat sparring (? Depends on who's free to do it)
Otherwise - Cardio (circuit training) on either day. Other day free.

Any glaring flaws or obvious areas that need improvement? Thanks.

Yeah you havent promised to record it. Remember video or it didnt happen.

Don't worry, if it happens I'll make sure it gets recorded. It''ll probably be amateur rules though, i.e. no closed-fist strikes to the head. A little lame I know but I'd rather walk before learning to run.

How many/how often are you taking off days? Do you just take them as needed?

One day every weekend off and then another one during the week off if I feel I need it, otherwise as scheduled.

If so keep training, you will pwn, you have a talent.

Knee's not yet 100% but it's fixed enough that I feel ok to start training properly.

Whoa whoa. I haven't got it organised yet. This is just a provisional plan in anticipation of getting it organised. I'm gonna be talking to the guy who can probably make it happen tonight so I'll see then.

Right, I've talked to my coach (who's also the organiser) and it's looking likely I'll fight in May, exact date to be confirmed.

Where's the kickjitsu? all I see is grapplin' and boxin'. You can't just rely on TX Johnson's video tutorials.
