MMA Strength & Conditioning

Basic Program

Our basic Strength and Conditioning Program begins (as do all of our more advanced programs) with:

Movement Prep: Static stretching, warm up, dynamic stretching followed by Static exercises designed to help improve your overall conditioning and neuromuscular efficiency. In other words, the program is designed to help you learn how to properly align, contract and follow the proper technique while being able to breath correctly.

While this seems simple… It’s not so easy to do all of it at once. That is why it is so important to be able to prep yourself prior to the actual workout. The proper protocol will help improve overall performance and reduce the possibility of injury.

Developing neuromuscular efficiency takes so time but once mastered, your overall capacity and athletic performance will increase dramatically. This will allow you to move on to the more Dynamic workouts.

Dynamic Strength and Conditioning Program

Again, this program begins with the Movement Prep portion of static and active stretching along with a warm up session. The main difference between this program and the basic is that now we incorporate more dynamic (movements) in the exercises and overall workout.

The exercises are more difficult but the main focus remains the same: Proper Alignment, Contraction, Technique (ACT) and correct breathing throughout each exercise and the entire workout.
