I'm conditioning coach for very successful MMA school in Northern Kentucky. I run conditioning program (as well as intruct MMA and BJJ) for fighters at Son Of Siam in Kentucky. Thought I would share saturday workout with you. It's just an example of one of many we do. The camera follows me around once, however it's four rotations total and then into group conditioning exercises.
I like to train everyone until failure, or at least what they think is failure. I like to think of your brain having a governor on it like a car. You need to turn it off sometimes. It's there to keep you safe, however to take it to the next level...you need to control your brain from telling you your done. It's amazing what can be achieved when one can teach himself never to quit. Difference between athlete and elite athelete...IMO.It's also what we call heart in a fight or sport. It's the ability to keep going even when lactic acid build up is high and your brain wants to quite.
"If you must prepare for them you are weak. You are strong when they must prepare for you"
My guys get results and I have many pros working with me now. It's a good time. I'm right in the mix and that keeps them motivated to keep up or challenge me. Max effort and short rest. We also incorporate sprint work and many other exercises. I couldn't list the stuff we do on here. I am always incorporating new things. Here is a video of last Saturday's workout.
