    I have never trained for MMA at all but I think Rick was into it at some point. Maybe he can chime in with some advice.

    Easier said than done, especially for big guys LOL

    I figured I might be able to find someone here that has some experience/knowledge.

    1) Most MMA coaches in my area work with smaller guys. The game is totally different, as there is no need to cut, but strength in relation to speed and mobility is a big factor. So you want to be strong, muscular, but not too muscular (as to sacrifice flexibility/mobility), and fast. Not just fast.

    2) I work on various martial arts. So my coaches are martial arts Sifus, Krus, Masters, and Grandmasters in their respective arts, but not MMA.

    I'm thinking about working with my local UFC gym, but I don't want to lose out on the high level training I'm getting with the art specific coaches and again (#1)...

    I wish I could find a coach for me, but I'm also at my max budget between two martial arts gyms, a weightlifting gym membership, supplements and food LOL

    The gyms alone are a total of $355 per month. Then probably like $100-150/ month on supps and $100-150 per week on food.

    Y'all might be able to help me dial in my strength and conditioning training though.

    I did have a chance to sit down with my martial arts coach Wednesday night, and essentially he told me that he sees the talent and drive in me to do well in competition, but he thinks I need to add a nutritionist and a sports-specific strength coach to my team.

    The thing is that my budget is already at max just paying for 3 gyms (my stand-up gym, my BJJ gym, and my weightlifting gym), but it's worth it because I've got some of the best coaches in their respective arts in the world.

    But, that means I've got to cut corners on the nutritionist and strength coach until I actually get some fights under my belt and start getting someone to pay for my coaches for me.

    Really, he said that I just need to transition my workouts to more sport-specific training. That, even though I'm doing functional lifting (squats, deads, bench, military press, pendlay row), that I'm really strong enough, and so I need to develop more endurance and power in specific muscle movements. If I develop more muscle without that, then I could actually hinder myself by developing muscles that are antagonistic to certain punches and kicks.

    So I came up with a routine I'm going to try today:

    3 rounds, 5 minutes - consistent jab, cross, jeep, roundhouse (so left punch, right punch, left kick, right kick) on heavy bag.
    3 Rounds of Circuit:
    30 Seconds Ground and Pound
    30 Seconds Hand Switching
    30 Second Rest
    1 Min Row Machine Sprint
    30 Second Rest
    1 Min Speed Bike Sprint
    30 Second Rest
    1 Min Bear Craws
    30 Second Rest
    1 Treadmill Sprint
    1 min rest
    Repeat

    Then really just doing a Push/Pull/Legs routine

    so, today, I'll do a pull day:

    Pendlay Rows
    115 X 6
    140 X 6
    165 X 6
    190 X 6

    Wide Grip Pull-Downs
    120 X 8
    140 X 8
    160 X 8
    180 X 8

    Deadlifts
    215 X 6
    260 X 6
    305 X 6
    350 X 6

    Hammer Curls
    25 X 10
    30 X 10
    35 X 10
    40 X 10

    10-15 minutes stretching

    I figured I'd go down in weights to account for the fatigue from the heavy bag and circuit training work and that I'd be dead by the time I got to hammers, so just light weight for reps.

    I've got some sparring fights tomorrow morning though. So I don't want to kill myself too much that I won't be able to spar effectively though.

    As per another similar post - one issue is the number of times you train. Like 8-10 total sessions in 5 days. One or 2 will need to be cut
