3 Ways to Put Pizzazz Back Into Your MMA Training

Training should be fun. Yet, for many entering into the world of mixed martial arts, the excitement and enthusiasm of conditioning and exercise can easily go from an energized full head of steam into disastrous derailment in the blink of an eye. Sore muscles and sheer exhaustion can turn motivation into frustration. You might wonder what the professionals know that you don’t. Is mixed martial arts training just a recipe for punishment, or can it be pathway to muscular enlightenment? The key to success may not be as difficult as you think. If you are beginning a mixed martial arts (MMA) training regimen, and you are finding the lifestyle to be tedious and overly challenging, then you might use these three steps to get back in the game.

1. Experiment and Learn New Techniques

Practice makes perfect, or so they say. While repetition is the pathway to perfection, lack of interest may well be the enemy. Spice up your training regimen by learning new techniques. Giving yourself something new to practice can bring new life to your mixed martial arts training routines and reinvigorate your motivation. Most of all, document your progress. Seeing results will likely help you to focus on meeting new challenges.

2. Mix Up your Conditioning

For some, running five miles daily and jumping rope for hours is fun. Yet, for others, it all becomes like some sort of dreary Groundhog Day routine. Don’t let your practice sessions become mind-numbingly boring. Make it fun by adding in workouts on fitness equipment or bring a new sparring partner into the mix.

3. Step Back and Study

Putting a little pizzazz back into your training regimen doesn’t always mean doing something physical. Sometimes the study and visualization of performance can add to your training while giving your body a physical break. Watching and examining mixed martial arts techniques can provide you with valuable tips and motivation to enhance your training.

With little ingenuity and some creative thinking, you can breathe new life into your mixed martial arts fitness routine.

"Just received the 3.2 update - outstanding!"

I really like the 3D effect for the Mitts and Sparring. Curious as to what would be involved to have the new center strike pad that is new with the N3.

"The best workout I have ever had"

I downloaded the update yesterday, let me tell you it's the best workout I have ever had. It's fun - like working out with a trainer. And the sensors are so much better, I don't have any problem with them. Thank you!

"Having the Nexersys on campus has gone over great..."

The students have seen it on TV, on YouTube and in the magazines and are ready to make it a regular part of their fitness routine. We are super happy with our Nexersys and I expect we’ll have to get another one.

"Love coming in and using the Nexersys..."

My son, Jaxon, and I love coming into the Northeast Family YMCA and using the Nexersys. I teach group fitness classes at the YMCA so it is important to me that my son stays active and leads a healthy lifestyle.

"This machine is AWESOME..."

I have trained with some of the worlds best coaches. This machine is AWESOME. I get the best of both worlds. It increases your agility, power, and cardio. The cardio segment really works the hard to reach muscles and the abdominal routine is insane. I have yet to find a better machine or exercise to do high Intensity Interval Training on. This machine is everything it says it is and more.
