Re: MMA Conditioning Program Help

Dakota,
I found your post very interesting. That has actually been my counter argument against doing SS. I'm looking for functionality in my weight training aspect because you are absolutely right, I'm a fighter before I'm a weightlifter, powerlifter, or bodybuilder.

So if I'm understanding you correctly though, organizing my supplementary work should include power cleans, pull ups, maybe some deadlifting, and core work (and of course crossfit to help with metcon)? But what about bench press, shoulder press? Unnecessary? Or do the CrossFit WoDs take care of these areas?
I like CrossFit but my only concern I ever had with it were lack of info and if it transitions well.
I think I have workout ADD and seem to get bored with programs easily so I think Crossfits variability would be good.
