I have been really getting into the idea doing MMA. If football does not work out for me next year or after the season i want to do MMA. Im just not sure where to start.
I have never done wrestling, boxing, kung fu, etc. So should i do wrestling first next year after football before starting MMA? Ive heard from a couple guys at my school thats the best thing to do. How should i train now? i barely do endurance training and go heavy 50% of the time(im on westside)
I would like to train for MMA and football now and kill two birds with one stone so i can start MMA sooner. It was also recomended to me that i lose some weight and compete with a smaller weight class since im very inexperienced. I currently weigh 155lbs at 5' 7". I know people keep telling me that its not a good idea, that with my strength i will lose strength and speed if i try and lose weight but is there anyway at all i could continue getting stronger for football and smaller for MMA?
As you can see if you read through all of that im pretty lost. Any advice, suggestions will really help.
