3 Top HIIT Workouts For MMA Fitness

3 Top HIIT Workouts For MMA Fitness

The original publishing date for this post was back on January 23, 2018. I wanted to pull this article out of the archives today because it still gets a lot of attention.

If you’re currently training in martial arts, or MMA then you need to have your fitness and athletic performance dialed in to perform on the mat, or in the ring. Today’s article is going to be a great resource for you to tap so that you can start to implement these HIIT workouts into your strength and conditioning program if you haven’t already.

  1. Do you feel that your fitness level and conditioning have hit a plateau?
  2. Do you feel like you’re not improving with your MMA and Combat skills as fast as you should?
  3. Aside from being functional for fitness, MMA, and Combat are you also frustrated that you aren’t leaning out and developing a lean body composition from your training?
  4. Are you familiar with HIIT workouts?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then this article (particularly with question 4 relating to HIIT Workouts) then this should be of great help to you. So everybody is hung up on the high intensity programs these days and as a strength coach I’ve always had a love–hate relationship with this because I think some training fads tend to get blown out of proportion. I think this is because with the tremendous influx of information due to the internet it often seems like people tend to offer solutions to training by painting with a broad brush, or by defaulting to metaphorically trying to use a hammer for both nails and screws.

So What’s The Point Of Training Plyometrics?

So What’s The Point Of Training Plyometrics?

  1. Are you interested in learn more about what plyometrics are and how to use the training in your own workouts? 
  2. Do you need to understand a safe and effective approach to training plyometrics in your own workouts? 
  3. Are you aware of the benefits involved with plyometric training? 

First, I want to take a second to clear the air about training plyometrics. Lately I’ve seen plenty of keyboard warriors the internet being blowhards about how plyometrics are a waste of time and are senseless when it comes to incorporating them into your training.

No, such advice is absurd and is coming from someone that knows nothing about plyometrics. As a strength and conditioning coach that has trained hundreds and even thousands of athletes and serious fitness enthusiasts over a 17 year career I can tell you that plyometrics can be a huge asset to your fitness and overall training program if you understand how to apply them safely and effectively.
