    How much do pro mma fighters train?

    I was just wondering.. how many hours a day/week do you think they train?

    Like how much training do they do on technique, conditioning, strength/power ect

    The elite guys train around 6 hours a day usually 6 days a week, how that is split up varies fighter to fighter, but that should give you a good idea. Watch some UFC All Access shows, they show you some cool stuff, it's pretty intense.

    I watched TUF before and heard BJ penn saying he trains 3 hours in morning, and 2 in the evening.. what I wonder about that though is what does he do?

    I mean, you cant do conditioning for 3 hours straight, or working tech you would probs get tired and sloppy..

    Would it be like say, Morning works tech, spars abit, then does conditioning circuits ect.. then for evening does strength/power?

    Here is the experience I have with some of the WEC, UFC and other pro fighters i train with. Most train on average 3 hours a day technique and cardio 3-4 times a week when NOT training for a fight.

    When it comes down to 6-8 weeks before a fight training is ramped up to average 6 hours a day 5-6 days a week depending on what week training camp it is. Technique is still about the same 3 hours a day, but during training camp you really up the sparring and conditioning. You want to hit peak conditioning the week before the fight and hodl that conditioning through the fight.


    I am 8 weeks out of an amateur fight and basically started my training camp yesterday. I cant spend all day training I have to work but I am still putting in a total of about 4 hours a day in 5 days a week.

    Couldn't say, I remember on Forrest's All Access he had to go to like 4 different places to train. He would do his Muay Thai & Boxing at one place, next he would do jiu jitsu somewhere else, then go to Randy's to spar and whatever else they made him do, then he would go to the S&C place to lift and stuff... damn it, I'll just find the video.

    Steroids allow this.
    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid and lazy people, just that we should eliminate warning labels and welfare, let the problem take care of itself.

    What is your mma training like? A typical day for me at the gym is 1 hour of muay thai (including light sparring), 5 rounds of heavy sparring, 1 hour of grappling(technique and rolling), 1 hour of mma in the cage which usually consists of 5 minute rounds pretty much non stop the entire hour 50% power on the striking.

    every morning I run, 3 days a week circuit training for conditioning, 2 days a week weight lifting.

    If you are training and sparring hard really your body shouldn't be able to handle much more than that 6 hours is pushing it really.

    ^^ to be honest i didnt train anywhere near 6days a week. if i could i would but my gym doesnt offer that... and we only spar once per week, we dont spar when we do standup training our sparring is both standup and ground its like a mma match but without the 8 oz gloves so if someone goes to the ground and the trainer wants to see that we take off the gloves and grapple

    but typically for me its wednesdays kickboxing and takedowns for about 55mins then 5mins break then another 55mins... we do mostly just pad work, practicing on each other limbs as well practicing checking kicks and blocking while other person doing the kicks and punches, also practice dodging punches and head movement and footwork and then we practice catching kicks and getting them down and using throws

    thursdays are grappling and we learn takedowns then positions and submittions for 2hrs.... if you want to roll you roll after class while the teacher will look over and give you advice....

    fridays are sparring for 1hr u may spar 2-3x and then go home basically


    if i could i would train 6days a week and train 3-4hrs of technique and then do my strength and cardio training seperate at home and i think my body could do it personally i dont see why thats so hard.... but yeh thats me

    Here is one thing that i wonder. How is it possible to train that many hours a day withouth over training? I mean bodybuilding , they suggest not training more than 1 hour 5days a week or your muscles can therefore become catabolic. I suppose its more cardio training which wouldn't hurt with that much training but still....

    kurt angle trained on technique, which wrestlers do for the most part of the training, imagine doing exhibition runs for 10 hours straight, you'll be gone before the 2nd hour.

    pretty suer its only 6 hours a day cuz a. they have a family, b. they dont wanna burn out, and c. everyone needs a break to relax

    Quality, not quantity. I have no idea why most MMA fighters train at all-in-one schools when it consists of second rate trainers who are good at a little of everything, but great at nothing. That's why you see sloppy hands, ****ty takedowns and when a fighter goes to their back they do absolutely nothing.

    see thats the thing though... you can train technique in my mind more than 3hrs per day, i mean i understand if i was training 5rnds of sparring daily i probably couldnt go a full month training properly like that and i have no clue either why some camps do that cause i wouldnt be down for that at all..... i would much rather train technique for long hrs than do it for short hrs for and do it harder for cardio purposes

    and to the bbing comment, you obviously are new to this i mean bodybuilding pro's say not to lift weights over a hr cause then your overtraining cause your training for gaining muscle mass... fighters train for technique and cardio and power mostly technique than anything else though... but honestly the only reason i think people cant train for long that i can understand is if your gym makes you go alot of rolling and sparring cause i do get cramps from rolling from time to time and sparring so much is just stupid to me... again dont attack me!!

    Yes technique is very important but you have to spar and roll as often as possible in order to put it all together.

    Think of it this way 99% of traditional martial arts don't do live sparring/rolling in their art at all. They do technique, kata, whatever. You may be a blackbelt in your art, but if you don't regularly train in real live situations such as sparring your pretty much useless in a fight against someone who does. Sparring and rolling is definitely the roughest part of training but one of the most important

    well....kurt is a douche...10 hrs a day? that was for the olympics. i am sure he did i or two 10 hr days a month in perperation. training can be various things. watching film can be considered training.

    ^^ well he'd definitely be a douche for including watching film when somebody ask you how much hrs you train per day. not saying its not helpful but i wouldnt count it as part of my training time unless i break it down for my reporter and tell them what exactly i am counting as "training"

    thanks for all the replys

    so, a realistic routine too set myself would be something like..
    tech for 1-2 hours a day, if i aint got a lesson.. if I have lesson obv go too that

    strength 1-2 times a week for about 30-45 mins, same with plyometrics 1-2 times a week, 30-45mins..

    then cardio, say some 5x5m conditioning circuits, and other conditioning work 3-4 times a week for about 45mins each session?

    Add a few 30-45min runs a week.. how would that be for training while im still learning martial arts?
    part of DA...keep it on the QT

    All day long pretty much, if not training there watching tapes, eating, or resting ext. It's pretty intense for any pro athlete in terms of how much they train, for mma its even more intense since they have to be so well rounded.

    Yeah it depends the fighter. I know some boxers who only start training 3 months before the fight. In the "OFF" season (when there is no fights, it's really the fighter's choice of light workouts. Before a fight it's a more intense training camp.

    Looks good to me but everyone responds different. After 3 months of this routine have a hard sparring session and take note of improvements.
