MMA- Fitness testing and Workout plan
Like many of you I am also trying to finish my Fitness Testing and Workout Plans this week. I used to compete in MMA and I would like to start training again to get back into fighting shape. I'm going to do the sit and reach test, strength test, and 400M in my fitness test, but I wasn't sure what else would accurately represent fighting shape in a test? Any thoughts on this would be helpful.
My workout plan is going to include many different aerobic, muscle, and flexibility workouts and also some pretty tough breathing exercises. I'll be running several days a week, doing bag and mitt workouts, and grappling and sparring sessions. I'm not sure how I’m going to space the hard days and easy days, but it will probably revolve around my class schedule.
My goals in this effort are to get my cardiovascular and muscle conditioning to the point where I could withstand three three-minute rounds of full pace sparring without serious fatigue. I'll need to focus mostly on endurance rather than increasing strength or speed. I'm probably not going to compete again, but I want to feel confident that I could compete if a chance came along.
Any comments or suggestions on testing or workouts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
