Daily Workout - MMA at World Class Martial Arts

I wasn't sure if my MMA gym was going to have Saturday sessions as this Thursday is Canada Day. So to be safe and make sure I got my Beat-down in this week, I went to a Wednesday morning Muay Thai & MMA class.

We did a really heavy skipping warmup that consisted of regular skipping for 30 seconds and then knee high skipping for 30 seconds, it seemed to go on forever! After which we did 100 Pushups, 100 Sit ups and 100 Squats.

Then we got into the training side of things and worked on some basic sweeps and arm bars. We finished off with about 10 minutes of rolling (BJJ Wrestling).

Total workout was 1.5 hours.


Daily Workout - MMA at World Class Martial Arts

I just wanted to do a quick update as I've been away camping since Friday afternoon. I did however find some time to do get a Friday morning MMA workout in before we left.

We did a pretty heavy warmup that consisted of lots of skipping intermixed with Push-ups, Sit-ups, Squats, Burpies and sprints. Afterwards we worked on Kicking and Takedowns. It was a great workout!


Daily Workout - MMA at World Class Martial Arts

I had a great workout at my local MMA gym, mostly we worked on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu transition moves. Learning how to go from different mount positions into what would be a better mount position. For example: going from a side mount (this is when my opponent is on their back and I have my weight over them but I am on a right angle to them) and then I transition to a full mount (this is when I have my full weight on my opponent with my legs above their hips in a stradle position)

After this we continued with more Brazilian Jiu Jitsu work with added striking and then in to some full on sparring in the last hour.

All in all it was a nice two hour workout that I will no doubt feel tomorrow.


Daily Workout - MMA and Total Gym Chest


I didn't make it to my morning Strength & Conditioning at my MMA Gym, but I did get to the one hour of technical training and then a second hour of sparring. Today we worked on BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) and then "rolled" it in to some more BJJ sparring which is actually referred to as "Rolling". Not really a lot of punching, it's more like wrestling but with chokes and submission moves like Arm Bars and Kimura's.

Since I didn't make the Strength & Conditioning class and I still had a bit of energy left in me, I quickly went home and did a 35 minute Chest workout on my Total Gym. I really noticed the lack of strength after doing two hours of MMA.
