Here’s the thing… Training dozens of mixed martial artists for MMA fights in local
shows and the UFC has given me rare insight into how most fighters usually train
for strength, cardio and power. I’m about to share what they did WRONG so you can
avoid crucial training errors and discover the RIGHT way to get into peak condition.
To All Serious Mixed Martial Artists,
Have you ever wondered what may be holding you back from being in top fight shape?
To be dripping with the confidence of knowing that you’ve got an elite level of strength, power and cardio that you know will never let you down?
If so, then you’ve come to the right place…
On the very page you’re reading at this very moment, I’m going to reveal to you the most efficient methods of rapidly increasing your gains in strength, cardio and explosive power for MMA while training only 2 days per week.
WARNING: There are no pills or potions and this will take some hard work, so if you’re looking for a magic-fix then you’ve landed on the wrong site. But if you’re looking for a solution to your strength and conditioning needs that’s not only based on science and theory but also tested in the Octagon, then the info you’re about to read may be the most important info you ever read.
In order to be a successful MMA fighter, you’ve got to constantly learn new techniques and hone your skills.
But let me ask you this…
When two athletes get ready to go to war and they’re equal in skill, who will win?
If you said, “The guy in better shape,” you’ve nailed it.
It doesn’t matter how skilled you are, if you gas out or get overpowered, you’re going to lose.
Even if you simply train for fun, what’s more fun… Getting tapped out all the time and losing to less experienced guys or being able to pull off all of your skills and train forever and still be hungry for more?
But to be an MMA fighter requires a lot of dedication – often 5, 6 or even 7 days a week of training.
This makes it hard to fit in your strength and conditioning workouts, even though you know how crucial they are to training and fighting at your potential.
And most workout plans you find require 3, 4 or even 5 workouts per week – impossible to stick to and potentially dangerous, since you’ll quickly become overtrained or injured.
And on top of that, the programs you find are based on old-school methods that drain your energy, making your MMA training at best INEFFECTIVE and at worst, COUNTERPRODUCTIVE, since you’ll end up developing sloppy technique because you’re sore and you’ve already spent all of your energy working out.
The fact is that most of the workouts you find online and see UFC fighters doing on TV won’t work for you, especially if you’ve got a job, school or family to manage too. They’re designed for guys who fight full time.
But the absolute worst plans are based around body-part splits – if you’re following a body-part split routine, you’re KILLING your chances at achieving phenomenal results.
These routines are not designed for MMA, they won’t give you the functional strength and power you need and they’re not only missing many key components but they also include many unnecessary elements, further wasting your precious time and energy.
Plus, they’ll make you bulkier, slower and more susceptible to gassing out – exactly the OPPOSITE of what you want.
Let me ask you a question…
Are you the go to coach for MMA fighters in your area?
Have you trained dozens of fighters (and champions) for competition in local fights all the way up to the UFC?
Do you have a degree in Kinesiology from one of the top universities in the world?
Have you spent all of your spare time over the last 4+ years researching, attending workshops and writing about MMA strength and conditioning?
And when you put that kind of dedication – that kind of passion – in to developing and testing your programs and methods, you truly gain an incredible understanding of how a mixed martial artist must train to attain their physical potential and maybe even more importantly, what must be left out, saving both your time and energy.
For example you’ve probably heard from certain coaches that Tabata’s are all you need for optimal MMA conditioning.
Let me ask you this…
How can Tabata’s be the ‘best’ method for fat loss, developing your aerobic system and your anaerobic system – 3 completely different goals?
That’s right, they can’t… and aren’t!
What these same coaches won’t tell you (or might not even know) is that every method can be useful, but it depends on the time and place the method is used that determines its effectiveness.
Here are 3 screw-ups showing how it’s more than just lifting some weights and doing some intervals if you truly want to be in top shape:
Screw-up #1: Weight training is crucial in developing your strength and power. But if you’re like most fighters and you don’t change your exercises and rep ranges at least every 4 weeks and progress in the right order, you’ll stop making gains and plateau and you’ll never get elite results from your program.
Screw-up #2: High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a solid method to develop your anaerobic endurance. But when you combine HIIT with the incorrect type of weight training, your body will be fighting itself and won’t make the optimal adaptations you could be making in your anaerobic endurance and strength.
Screw-up #3: Medicine ball exercises are the best way to develop knockout power – but most guys totally blow it by doing way too many reps and not resting enough so that the exercises are a quarter as effective as they could be if done right, which you’ll learn about soon.
And that’s why MMA Specific Programming and Periodization is so important – because it allows you to train strategically AND synergistically, working the right attributes at the right time, resulting in consistent gains while completely eliminating excessive soreness, fatigue, overtraining and injury.
The Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program has been tested, tweaked and proven in the UFC, in championship fights and in local shows by 523 fighters (and counting) from over 28 countries around the world.
So what kind of results did they get? Take a look for yourself:

Or perhaps you’d like to do your own research for fighters around the world who have taken their strength and conditioning to whole new levels by following the Ultimate MMA S&C system:
The honest truth is that there are only a few athletes in every club who will get the true attention of their coaches, since it’s impossible to help everybody equally.
If you’re one of these lucky few, you’ll get more detailed instructions, you’ll get more tips when you’re sparring and rolling and your development will skyrocket.
Whether you’re currently a star pupil or not, the best way to get and keep this elevated status is to be in peak shape.
Just look at it from your coach’s perspective – would you rather spend more time and effort with the guy who gets sloppy and forgets technical details because they’re winded, or the athlete who can soak up everything you throw at them, has endless energy and is always ready for more?
So instead of spending time trying to catch your breath or recovering from a tough sparring session, you’ll be right back on the mats improving your game, asking questions and honing your MMA skill set, rapidly accelerating your development as a fighter.
The Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program outlines in an easy-to-follow format everything you need to never have to worry about your conditioning again, including:

P.P.S. Have a question? It’s probably already answered below!
Q: How can I only workout 2 days per week and still get results?
The Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program is designed so that you only have to dedicate 2 workouts per week to your strength and conditioning program.
The secret is in the setup. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, has been perfected to work together to increase your strength, power, endurance and cardio.
Every single workout, every single exercise, every single rep you do on this program is for a very specific reason that contributes to the overall continual and rapid results you get from the program.
Simply put, when you learn how to unlock the right methods in the right combination in the right sequence, the strategic, synergistic results are profound. And that’s exactly what the Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning program does.
Q: What kind of equipment do I need to follow this program?
All you need to get in the best shape of your life is equipment you’ll find in any gym:
And while medicine balls and cables aren’t absolutely necessary, you will get optimal results if you have access to these as well.
Q: Can I do CrossFit while I’m on the program?
NO. In fact, doing CrossFit while on the program will prevent you from getting optimal results and might even cause an injury because you’ll be in a constant state of neural and muscular overtraining.
While CrossFit is excellent for someone looking to develop a good level of general fitness, but the lack of periodization will stop you from making consistent gains.
Q: Can I follow the program more than once?
Because the program is based on a periodized template, exercises, reps, rest periods and more change at least every 4 weeks.
That means you can continue to cycle through the 8, 12 or 16 week training templates and continue to make gains, week after week, month after month.
Q: I’m not an MMA fighter, I just want to train like one. Will this work for me?
First of all, I know why you want to train like a fighter – because they not only have insane levels of strength and conditioning, they also have chiseled, athletic physiques that most guys (and girls) are after.
Although this program is designed specifically for guys who compete, inside the manual I’ll show you exactly what to do if you’re not training MMA at the same time and you can train 3-4 days per week using the program to make up for the time you’re not doing MMA.
Q: I want to start getting in top fight shape right now; will I have to wait for you to ship me all this information before I can get started?
No! The entire program will become immediately available to you via download after your purchase – no shipping fees, no waiting for results – you can start right away!
Q: I’m not in my 20’s or 30’s, will this program still work for someone considerably older?
It does, but to prove it to you, why don’t you check out the results that some of these ‘older’ guys have gotten from the Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program:

Q: Is this program suited for a complete beginner?
If you’re a beginner, then this is the best way to get on your way to optimal strength, conditioning, power and cardio for MMA.
You’ll actually make even faster gains than more experienced guys because you won’t have any bad habits to break and you’ll be doing everything properly right from the beginning.
Q: What if it doesn’t work for me?
Then it’s all FREE.
Simply put, if you follow the Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning program exactly as outlined in the materials, and do NOT gain more strength, power and endurance than you ever have previously, just contact me and I’ll refund your money. It’s that simple.
I stand behind my program as the best MMA strength and conditioning program ever created, and if doesn’t yield those results for you when followed, you get your money back. No hassles, no hoops to jump through, just a prompt, courteous refund.
