Re: Reasons why Crossfit is good training for MMA

Crossfit is not a good training program for MMA...

This sport includes 3 different dimensions of fighting (striking, wrestling and grappling) each of which takes many years to master....

The athletes in MMA or even wrestling for that matter train so hard that it becomes somewhat unrealistic to do Crossfit...

Strength and conditioning coaches in MMA are all about finding the least amount of work to do that which yields the desired results. Doing Crossfit will take away from the learning in all the martial arts and keep the athletes tired and under recovered.

Raw strength is result of weightlifting (Not Crossfit)
endurance is that cardio, again, not CrossFit...
