Re: Concept2 / CrossFit and MMA

Love the workouts, but since we don't have a rower, what would be a good substitute for those workouts.

Re: Concept2 / CrossFit and MMA

Hey Greg,

We are in the process of developing fighter-specific workouts that include the C2, kettlebells, bodyweight, airdyne bike etc... We plan on running a class just for these type of training sessions. Will keep you posted. Or, just check our site periodically for updates.

Re: Concept2 / CrossFit and MMA

So far with my experience in brazilian jiu jitsu, I have not had any sport specific training applied to my WODs and I have experienced amazing results. So far I feel that keeping it constanly varied, keeping the body guessing has worked awesome. Your grappling/ mma opponent may not be what you had expected. The fight may be fast and loose, or he/ she might like to stay in close and out muscle you. So in my brief experience so far in CrossFit, staying varied has been beneficial. One day super heavy, next lots of running and jumping, then medium length WOD with medium weight, then tabatas at high intensity. And of course, regular training in your sport to increase your skill level, timing, and awareness.

ConceptII on tc would be awesome - I love C2's. It would be great publicity for them and for CrossFit in general.

I'm interested in the experimentation process in the future to see what is generally best here and what can be tweeked to better our performances and sport specific training. good stuff.

Re: Concept2 / CrossFit and MMA

Hey sorry I have been away for a while. I get pulled a bunch of directions here at C2 but I want to keep the MMA training threads going. I have had a bunch of questions on how fighters have been using the rower for training and because I am just a WOD guy and do more Motocross than fighting I like it when you guys tell us how you use it. I don't like to pass along BS and I know you guys will only post what works the best. Thanks for keeping it going and if any of you are going to be at the games make sure you come find me. - Greg
