I do a short deload 2-3 days prior, but try to keep everything else the same. Meals, sleep, etc.

Mark is this MMA or Grappling. I would continue doining the WOD then I would do my Martial Arts training. I would brake up the sparring in rounds just like a fight. So if its 3 minute rounds with one minute rest between rds thats how i would train. always rotating a fresh guy in.If its a 3round fight i would go five rds and if its five rds i would train for a 7 round fight.Try to put your self in the worst postions and fight from their, that way if you end up their you well know what to do.

Hi!

I treat MMA like kickboxing...

I do my hard sparring weeks 5 and 4, getting my conditioning high, remembering how to take impact. Weeks 4 and 3 are the highest intensity, really killing stamina, really working the techniques and combinations to be used.

Weeks 3 and 2 the emphasis is on sharpening and precision, with a quick fix for fitness (12 minutes of !) each week thrown in to focus fitness conditioning to the task at hand.

Weeks 2 and 1 taper right off, longer rests, shorter exercise, everything full speed...

week 2 and 1 start loading carbs and vitamins and really sort out the diet...no conditioning workouts (apart from 12minutes session) replacing conditioning with technical workouts.

Final week only 2-3 sessions (rather than my usual 10-15) as there will be travel involved that needs to be accounted for (tiredness, time zones, change in food, medicals, press meets etc) and these will focus specifically on recovery and reiteration of the work to be done.

Then after the fight, after getting my fluids back up, recovering from the effort...takes a coupla days...then is Hagan Daz or...or? AND Ben and Jerry's lol!

Smiler

It would be great if a top fighter would come out with a DVD series on this subject and lay it out day to day exactly what you do leading up to your fight. And maybe for different levels of fighters, not everyone can train 6 hours a day. The Bas Rutten Big DVDs are great but we need more detail for the final 6 weeks or so.

Prefight sharpening is where trainers make their living. I doubt we'll see anyone giving their bread and butter away for 39.95 and s&h.

If they do, then salud; I'll question their business sense and enjoy the info.

The Bas Rutten Big DVDs of combat cost over $100.00 and they are great, but they dont give you the exact day to day conditioning. I think if a fighter wanted to they could charge lots of money for the DVDs.
