5 Kettlebell Exercises For MMA Fitness

So these days whenever you walk into a fight gym you always hear a new customer, or potential trainee ask “What disciplines do you train out of your school?” The owner or head trainer may reply “We offer boxing,” or “We offer Jiu Jitsu,” or “We offer Muay Thai.” Kettlebell exercises and strength and conditioning are rarely the central focus.

These are all the general bread and butter answers, but today I want to talk about the discipline of Strength And Conditioning, or more specifically some strength and conditioning involving kettlebell exercises that are essential for your MMA, Combat, and Military athleticism.

MMA: Final Week Strength And Conditioning Workout For My Competing Fighters!

MMA: Final Week Strength And Conditioning Workout For My Competing Fighters!

Mixed Martial Arts Fighter by ChristopherjSmith

The following workout consists of my final training week for 2 of my competing fighters after a 6 week plan. The focus of this last training session was to emphasize big core movements for the optimal development of strength, power, and speed. There has been a steady increase of intensity (increased weighted resistance/volume) over the course of the 6 week periodization plan. There is also some additional emphasis on cardio with the inclusion of more strength endurance/mobility based drills along with combining lifts with a  superset structure. Feel free to give this a try, but ease into the volume and amount of weight being lifted. Make sure that you progress by executing a quality lift rather than allowing heavy weight to compromise your technique!
