I've been training with Icon around 3 weeks and i feel like I've found a second home (seriously.... I pretty much live there now). I was so nervous to start, especially as a woman, with no combat experience, in a male dominated environment; but the team and coaches are amazing, everyone is so encouraging, supportive and patient and it's just an awesome environment to stretch myself physically (both literally & figuratively) and mentally. Thanks Steve and all the guys and gals at Icon, you're an awesome bunch

Workout for MMA fighters

MMA is a full body workout on its own, but if an untrained person will try to kick, punch and fight like the martial arts fighters do they will break a bone or two. This means that a person has to train aggressively and consistently to make sure that they can develop endurance and strength in the body. For this, they have to do particular workouts that challenge their body and make it strong and also able to withstand the harshness of the game. But one thing should always be kept in mind, and that is, the person should get training under supervision.

Kettlebells workout:

The first instrument used by the MMA fighters are the kettlebells, they are metal balls with the handle. These balls are used by the trainees to build up the full-body strength and mostly the lower part so that they can get the strength in their legs in which they can perfect their kick and focus all their upper and middle body strength towards their legs. This workout is a bit hard but to gain the body and strength you have to work out hard too.

Crossfit:

Metabolic conditioning, box jumps, medicine ball exercises, tire flips and kettlebell swings area few of the CrossFit exercises that are incorporated all together to make sure that you get the endurance, flexibility, strength and most importantly the workout that will prepare you for what has to come ahead. This is the way you can train your whole body rather than just focusing on a few muscles of your body. Many amateur MMA fighters have these exercises incorporated into their routines as a ritual. And this is what has made them strong enough to face all of the fighting harshness that has come their way in their careers.

Strength training:

Many MMA fighters have made their routine of doing the strength training. Basically, this means that before every fight the fighter star training its body parts one by one focusing one day an each leading up to fight. This helps give body healing time too so that it doesn’t get overtrained and exhausted that may lead to injury.

Circuit training:

Circuit training is like a prep training for the fight, the same intervals that are for the fight are made use of, and bod is trained to respond to it. All the MMA fighters make use of it to condition their body especially before fight.

These all workouts mentioned above are very challenging, and no doubt requires full attention, but one thing is for sure that MMA fighters are supposed to be hardy, and that is what makes them strong and able to endure the pressures that are posted on them mentally and physically. It should be considered as a way of preparing them for the worse in life by working out mentally and physically and increasing their power and energy.
