Re: Reasons why Crossfit is good training for MMA
I took my first fight with less than a year of Muay Thai training. I was training at a university club at the time. We had only about 3 or 4 days a week that I could get in and train, and usually only between an hour or two at a time. Because a lot of that training was focused towards technique, drills, and sparring, the need for GPP training outside of those hours was pretty big.
Now, when I build up for a fight I'm usually doing 2-3 hours each day of Muay Thai, plus an hour or two of other strength and conditioning work.
