What is The Best MMA Workout?

Whether you choose to work hard and make your way to the Octagon, or you just want to feel the confidence and even look like you could handle a few rounds with Anderson Silva, you’ll need to exercise like your favorite fighter would. Unfortunately, the best MMA workout does not use a ‘one-size fits all’ approach for everyone. That is because not everyone fits into the same categories of strength and conditioning. Yet, there are some common characteristics of fitness training that will have you blasting strikes and grappling like a champion.

The best MMA workout typically follows a disciplined regimen of core, cardio and strength conditioning. However, for someone who doesn’t need to lose weight, an MMA workout for dropping the pounds would not be ideal. Someone who is already very strong and well-built might easily power through strength training exercises but may not have the endurance to last in the ring. Likewise, if you are just beginning a training routine, extreme, and vigorous exercise right away can take the fun out of training and even be dangerous. Therefore, the best MMA workout follows a plan tailored to your current level of fitness and body makeup.

Whether you use fitness equipment, or do it the old-fashioned way by running several miles, doing sit-ups for days and lifting heavy household items, the best MMA workout will focus on setting realistic goals and charting your progress. For example, a beginner might set a cardio and endurance goal of running a mile in a specific amount of time, or hitting the heavy bag for twenty minutes straight. Others might focus on increasing their reps with lower weights to tone muscle and still others will do fewer but heavier reps to help build muscle.

"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.
