MMA Cardio Training Using Running Drills

Here’s a workout that we used getting ready for Tough Mudder events we ran last year. This is a great workout for outside, and a track is ideal. The goal is to complete each lap without resting. If needed rest at the end of a lap.

Laps 1 and 3

Forward Run (sprint) 100 meters
Inch Worm/ Walkout 10 reps
Active Recovery 2 Laps (Jog)
Backwards Run (Sprint) 100 meters
Push ups 10 reps
Active Recovery 2 Laps (Jog)
Russian Twists 50 reps

Laps 2 and 4

Lateral Grapevine (sprint) 100 meters
Jump Squat 10 Reps
Active Recovery 2 Laps (Jog)
Jump Squat 10 Reps
Lateral Shuffle (sprint) 100 meters
Push ups 10 Reps
Active Recovery 2 Laps
Russian Twist 50 Reps

Workout Goal:
Complete workout laps 1 – 4 without resting. If needed rest between rounds enough to catch your breath and be ready to go. Workout can be done on a track or field. Make sure to do a proper warm up of at least 10 minutes before beginning this workout.
