The main thing to consider with MMA conditioning is the SAID Principle – Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demand.

To get fit and strong for MMA, you need to perform and replicate MMA specific movements.

In my opinion, all the schedules and S & C programmes that you see on the UFC Countdown programmes would leave the average athlete completely burnt out and overtrained. The programmes are either greatly exaggerated, only used for short periods of time, or the fighters are jacked up on steroids, HGH and insulin.

Consider 1 set Training programmes, whereby you perform 1 working set for each body part, rather than the traditional 3. This worked well for me when training MMA more than 3 times per week – otherwise, recovery was impossible.
