We know you’ve seen it, and maybe have even tried it.
You know…. the super-duper, ultra-complex, multi-angle, compound circuit, training day that looks far more like a circus act than a training protocol for combat athletes.
Yes, you do learn hundreds of scientifically proven training routines and principles in the MMA Conditioning Coach Certification course. However, you don’t need to combine all of them in any single workout. And, it’s unlikely you need all of them in a full season of training for any single athlete.
Your job is to have a massive toolbox of knowledge and skills. Then, you carefully select the best possible combination for the task at hand.
In the earlier days of MMA fitness and conditioning, coaches would do way too much because they thought they had to “destroy” the athlete to make him or her better. Just because you throw up in a workout, doesn’t mean it was effective. If fact, it’s just stupid. Why would that ever be an objective?
Of course, you want to push the limits of the athlete on some days. Most often, it’s more about technique, intelligence, skills, and logical progression.
When you complete our training program, all of this makes sense.
Think about BJJ training.
In many cases, your coach will focus on a specific technique such as spider guard. The warm-up can be aligned with this technique. The progressions can stem from this technique. The strength training exercises can be related to the hip movement and grip that is required. It all ties together. However, you don’t have to be (or look) crazy during the workout to be incredibly effective while you and your students have fun.
In short, use your vast knowledge to make things more simple and effective. Stop being a circus ringleader.
