    HOW do MMA fighters get so BIG?

    fighters in the UFC, K-1, etc... i mean honestly, how do these people get so big? considering the huge amount of cardio they do to be in shape for a fight, the cutting they have to do to make it to a weight class, honestly, how are they able to still maintain and even gain more muscle?

    im interested in knowing what type of exercise routine these fighters do aside from training for a fight.. what exercises or type of splits, etc...

    if there are any fighters here, please shed some light on my question.

    thanks...

    (edit: just found out there was an MMA section. sorry for the double thread.)

    For people like Tyson, consider they are among the genetic elite of this world. 1 in a million type people.

    For guys like Frank Shamrock, Mark Coleman, and many other fighters, they use steroids and eat a lot and work out. It's hard to gain muscle while doing a lot of MMA training, even if you eat more calories than needed. A lot of it goes to fat instead of muscle because you're not focussing on muscle hypertrophy.

    Some aren't on steroids. Some are. Often it's a combination of many things. A lot of MMA fighters have been athletes since they were 13. You're bound to have muscle if you've wrestled for 15 years, don't you think? Combine it with above average genetics, lifting, all sorts of stuff. If you've wrestled for 15 years and gained only 3lbs of muscle for year, that's still 45lbs more than you might not have had.

    MMA fighters are where they're at because they've been athletes day in and day out for years. If you do something athletic for years, it will build you a good physique.

    some MMA fighters like houston alexander lift almost everday, that man is massive but it's no different from bodybuilding except you gotta divide your time. there's also a bunch of MMA fighters that aren't big or even look like they are in shape. look at NFL players besides linemen, now those guys are huge

    Which brings a more interesting question a solid weight plan for the MMA athlete and a solid weight program for MMA practitioner.

    I have so much trouble fitting in lifting and MMA I think I may go to a AM PM kind of deal but I always train PM I like to be fresh and the AM workouts could drain me.

    I think it is naive of us to not think that at least 50% of all pro athletes are on gear. I don't blame them. You have to keep up with the Joneses to compete and level the playing field. Also, there are the huge salaries.

    Lets throw some factors in here. Many fighters that includ Randy Couture weight train doing a circuit of several weighted exercises along with thier routine cardio. To put on muscle isn't it done like high weight low rep

    its not just lifting and genetics. if youve read the others' posts, they made some decent answers. i think that alot more calories is whats needed.

    im thinking what type of routine would a fighter go through.. like for example, would he do a 5 day split? rippetoes? 5x5? westside? etc...

    No way they could unless they are juicin on da juice.

    I tried runnin 5x5 along side of training 4-5 days a week 2-3 hours a night and even just compounds it didn't work. Felt like I was going to overtrain, maybe I will try again and literally do JUST squat, bench and deadlift and military, and ex out all the other b.s. hmmmmmmm now you got me thinkin.

    Maximize your time in between fights which can be MONTHS.

    Maintenance when a fight nears.




    Most fighters compensate for muscle loss, weight loss, in their downtime between fights.

    How much time do you have each week? each day?


    It's hard to match a professional athlete's routine when you have a normal day job or school. They get to dedicate their life to training and fighting while normal Joe's have to work with a limited schedule.

    It was pretty smart because eating an excess amount of calories is how bodybuilders grow too...its not like their bodies are any different because they train differently.

    honestly alot of them arent really that "BIG" just in awesome shape... so on ppv they look alot bigger than they are.. of course they are bigger than the average joe but not next to a BBer or such..

    with good genetics like many said and a good base/offseason when they do their fight training they look pretty good... but not "BIG"

    This is not very duable. Not for a professional fighter. Lifting heavy 3-4 times a week will only make you extreamly sore and it will effect the rest of your training. My self and alot of other professional fighters lift heavy once a week and the other days focus on muscle endurance and muscle recovery excersises. You are dead on with the high protein and carbs. Carbs are extreamly important!

    For the question on how mma guys are so big?

    1.) Genetics...plain and simple. (Tyson used to never lift and he was a monster)

    2.) Diet

    3.) Good work out routine (NOT OVER TRAINING)

    4.) Steroids
