The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Multi-Martial arts training routine

    One of my co-workers is getting ready to start fighting in these multi-martial arts tournaments where they stack diffrent martial arts disciplines against eachother. He asked me to find out if anybody know of a good training routine for him to condition him for these matches...

    Do you mean mixed martial arts?


    How many rounds and how long are the rounds? How far out is he from the fights?

    Tournament, so he will have more than one bout that night?

    talk to mcvein on this sight, i believe he trains ken po. he might know of a good routine.

    here's what i would suggest.
    -start training much sooner, much harder
    -do a lot of cardio because endurance is probably going to be the beginners biggest struggle. a lot of anaerobic stuff. loads of it with not many breaks. this is most likely going to be how his fight will go. i mean, go all out, balls to the wall as hard as you can for as long as you can, over and over and over.
    -probably most important, work on a ground game. if he has pretty good standup, the other guy is probably going to take it to the ground. so i would try to work on some basic jiu jitsu. do lots of work with that. if he hasnt done jiu jitsu before, it would be a good idea for him to work on his sprawl in order to avoid a takedown. this will help him keep the fight on his feet.
    -also, he might need to practice some disorientation recovery drills. have him spin around and around until he is completely disoriented and then have someone come after him. either a takedown or just some light punches. this will help simulate getting popped. if he hasnt fought before, that first time he gets hit in the face will probably daze him. the dizziness from the spinning will help simulate that feeling and help him learn to protect himself once he gets hit

    The short answere is probably www.crossfit.com

    But I'm still confused, if he is only fighting once that night, how is it a tournament?

    He has fought before?

    What promotion is he fighting for? I'm guessing its a local show, which is great!

    What is Ken Po? Some sort of karate?

    Where does he train? Aren't they setting him up with a training schedule?

    I think you may be misunderstanding what he is saying.

    Q) Is it MMA? Or is it more like sparing/kick boxing.
    I have done many types of Martial Arts, and do some sparing type things on the local level. Kempo was one that I really enjoyed, however, like most martial arts, it is SELF-DEFENSED based, and there is hardly any ground fighting in it.
    When I have a tournament coming up, the 2 months before, I train my ass off. Practice more than anything. If its MMA, find his weakness, and have him train with someone who can attack it, and is willing to do a few things over and over again, thus allowing him to learn to counter it. If its sparing/ Kick boxing, make sure you are in good Cardio shape, there is a lot of cardio in kick boxing, as well as MMA, flexibility is a must, as well as agility/speed.

    Also, if its sparing, chances are its point fighint, 1 pt punch, 1 pt body kick, 2 pt kick to the head. Nothing below the waste, and nothing on the back side.

    Ill check back, when you have more info.

    Good advice so far...

    Best advice I would give to anyone would be to pick up or find copies of Bas Rutten's workout CDs and do them 5-6 days a week. The all around fighting (MMA) and the all around workout are very very good. Cardio is always one of the biggest issues in the ring and doing these tapes while giving 100% will help with that and muscle stamina. I train with a few professional fighters and we do these tapes quite often.

    If it is a true MMA tournament work on the ground game/submissions a lot. Even if that is not a strength then he should work on escapes and ways to get back to his feet ASAP if he is taken down.
