Muay Thai Strength And Conditioning…Training For A Mule Kick!!!

Sidewalk Stencil, Muleshoe, TX by Robby Virus

The older I get the more I realize just how truly incredible the power of language can be. That’s right, I said language.  The ability of being able to communicate a message to one another is a very powerful and essential thing. I may be sounding like Captain Obvious (Using the Captain Obvious Reference again ;-))here, however even though we may be capable of communicating a message to one another sometimes the receiver of that message may not always interpret our message the way we intended it to be communicated. Let that sink in for a second. Hopefully you are interpreting this message the way I intended it to be. So where am I going with this? Just keep reading Grasshopper!

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!

You see it has been my experience that moving the body through various planes of motion is what trains us to be ready for most any physical feat.  However the problem with most strength and conditioning programs out there is that they neglect proper dynamic warm up in addition to neglecting getting the body used to moving in more than one direction.
