An MMA workout does not have to take you the entire day to complete. In fact, an effective MMA workout can actually be quite short. Many people are
surprised that a 15 minute MMA workout can actually be as effective as an hour long workout, and that an hour long workout isn't even really necessary
most of the time. MMA is very different from most other mainstream sports. MMA requires a variety of physical conditioning and training which running
alone will not give you. Neither will wrestling, boxing, or weight training if done alone.
To be at the top of your fight game, you need to cross train using a wide variety of MMA conditioning tactics, drills, and exercises. If you do, you will develop
muscle strength, be strong and well conditioned, have stamina, endurance, and have excellent cardio conditioning. People sometimes get caught up in
wondering whether one exercise or another is better. In reality, a MMA athlete should us everything and anything that would improve their physical
condition for fighting, boxing, and wrestling. This doesn't mean that all conditioning methods are equal. Rather, it means that you will never be as
good as you could be if you only use one method, so mixing it up is the best way to go.
The fact that all you need is 15 minutes to have an effective MMA workout is wonderful for many people. Some give up their dreams of MMA because they
don't have the time between busy family lives, jobs, and other obligations to put in the hours of training that they believe is always required.
Usually, they give up, and may not work out at all. Whether or not you are trying to be a MMA fighter, a good MMA workout can help you reach your
fitness goals and since you can do it in just 15 minutes, you don't have to let a busy lifestyle get in the way of reaching your fitness goal.
When you are going to do a fast workout, it's important to find one that consists of exercises that will benefit you the best. Here's an example of an
effective 15 minute MMA workout.
The warm up is very important in MMA training so make sure that you do not skip it. First, use the foam roller. Next do bodyweight squats, squat to stand and glute
stretch into forward lunge. Next, do push-up plus on knees, kneeling reach throughs, lunge with rotation, lat stretch, and pec stretch. The warm up
will probably take you around four minutes to complete. Now comes the main part of the work out. You should do barbell clean and press, 3-4 reps 5-8
times, followed by pullups, 3-4 reps 5-8 times. Next do trap bar dead lifts, again 3-4 reps, 5-8 times. Now do 3-4 pushups 10-20 times. End with 1-3
trips for plate pushes. Make sure to alternate and not do one move completely before you move onto the next. It seems like a lot, but it can all be
done in just 15 minutes and it will give you an effective workout.
Remember that speed is important in MMA, so as long as you can do it safely, do the exercises as quickly as possible in order to increase your speed
