Strength and Conditioning for Mixed Martial Arts: A Practical Guide for the Busy Athlete (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


While most martial arts gyms teach excellent fighting techniques, few have a full understanding of the principles behind strength and conditioning, leaving many fighters over trained and injured. Strength and Conditioning for Mixed Martial Arts: A Practical Guide for the Busy Athlete provides elite-level instruction beyond fighting technique, focusing instead on improving overall athletic performance that works side-by-side with a fighter's martial arts training. Written for the non-professional athlete, from beginning to advanced fighters, it is also readily implemented around a full-time job. Topics covered in this book include:

Selecting and maintaining equipment

Developing a training plan

Strength and conditioning

Developing a sound and safe nutrition plan

Common injuries and injury prevention

Preparing for competitions

Most mixed martial arts athletes must be able to effectively balance strength and conditioning workouts, martial arts training, family, work, and recovery. This book is designed for just that purpose, helping fighters develop programs for their specific needs, whether training for self-defense, health and wellness, or competing in the cage.
