Are you Fit to Fight?
Now, before all the male egos out there beat our chests and say “ hell yah! I’m fit to fight!” I’m not really talking about a real street fight or military combat (well maybe…). I am talking about an MMA fight like the ones we see on Fox sports with the UFC. MMA is a sport that has been popular since the 1990’s. However, it’s been around for some time. They have seen paintings and sculptures depicted multi-discipline combat moves back to the Toga days. Back then it was a little less civilize and there was no “referee” per se. Today, they call the fight in the octagon more civilized which I do agree with. However, when you look at both times in history the fitness level to stay in that type of physical condition is most inspiring.
So, what does it take to walk in the cage or the ring ? What attributes do you need to be fit to fight? Many of us would settle for being fit as a fighter. No offense to the bodybuilding community but there is little room for the those big bulky muscles in the ring or cage. They simply are not functional. How much you can bench press is not going to relate to how well you can throw a punch. Many people may think that, but as a personal strength coach to over 15 pro MMA fighters, it simply is not the case. In order to go into the “chaos of combat “ as we call it, you need several attributes.
Gas in the Tank, Round 1
Well, there you have it. If you give this a whirl, I can pretty much guarantee you will be Fit to Fight!
