Hey guys! Been doing jiu-jitsu for a while and want to dab into mma. Want to really get in good shape.

Anyone have any good workouts that build strength and definition as well? Circuits maybe?

Dont really workout correctly in the weightroom so I need some help.

I workout BJJ four nights a week and weight train the other three.

Thanks!

Can I? Can I? ....


Look up Crossfit, it's a general physical preparedness program that's used by a lot of fighters with great success.

Hmmmmmm, maybe crossfit.com....And definition doesn't mean a damn thing in grappling.

I have a question about crossfit. How can the average guy, who doesn't have rings and all the other training equipment that they use, do some of the exercises. Is there somewhere somebody has improvised some of the exercises.

Look at the FAQ. Lots of good info on substitutions in there.

Go make a heavy sandbag and carry it for intervals. Thats helped with my grappling conditioning more then sprints, log distance running, and any other conditioning program other than grappling itself.

I dunno, "log distance running" sounds pretty cool. :D

crossfit is fantastic, check out CORE programs... if you don't have access to any type of equipment (kettlebells, swiss ball, pushup handles, weights, etc) there are tons of great plyometric workouts that work remarkably well. Explosiveness and muscular endurance are at a premium, and calisthetics and plyometrics are great ways to get that up.
