MMA Training

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We are back home after a long 12 hour drive (phew), it went as good as it could go I think.

Now that I am back, I can get back into a routine. I am thinking up a workout that will cater to a more MMA (mixed martial arts) style routine to throw in a couple times a week. I actually have Joe Wisdo of MMA Fitness and Training sending me a workout routine, diet plan, and nutrition manual, I will let you all know how I like it. There should be a link to their website up soon so be looking for it if you are interested.

On that note, while in Blacksburg, Va I had the opportunity to join a group of guys that train in MMA at the Blacksburg Martial Arts Center. Excellent time! My background is mainly in Tae Kwon Do where I fought at the collegiate level and a small mix of Jui-Jitsu and Haipkido. I can tell you one thing MMA is more of a workout than it even looks on TV!

I am real excited to get more and more involved and have hopes to fight competitively someday. I will keep you posted on that and how my training for that is going.

Todays workout...
Upper body
Bi-ceps, Tri-ceps
Weighted pull ups
close grip pull ups
corn cob pull ups (look them up, they suck, but they are sooooo good)

Run 2 - 2.5 miles at 1 incline and 6.5 speed (better for your knees at a slight incline)

cable oblique rotation

and if there is time, my normal ab routine
