In the second part of the course you’ll take part in a step-by-step workshop that will guide you through the creation of your very own personalized 4-month plan for building unstoppable endurance.

 

This course will require some heavy lifting on your part, but I promise that when you master this content, you’ll have the key to designing your very own individualized fight plan, and this will help you reach your full potential as a fighter.

COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES +

After completing this course, you will:

  1. Understand how food is converted to energy, and all about the currency of energy in the human body.
  2. Understand how your body supports powerful high-intensity efforts in the cage, and the performance adaptations that can result from identifying and training the appropriate energy system.
  3. Identify the key characteristics of energy systems that allow you to perform at a high intensity for a prolonged period of time, like when you’re performing long combinations or trying to control your opponents body position. Understand how this energy system works and identify performance adaptations that arise from targeting this energy system appropriately.
  4. Identify the key characteristics of the energy system that allows you to work at a repeated high intensity over the course of a whole round, and a whole fight. Understand performance adaptations that arise from targeting this system correctly.
  5. Appreciate how all energy systems work together
  6. Understand the pros and cons of low and high intensity training
  7. Know how to manipulating movement pattern, work interval, rest interval and exercise intensity to train all of the energy systems that influence your performance in the cage.
  8. Appreciate how your body responds to training
  9. Explain the general adaptation syndrome
  10. Define overtraining, supercompensation and a mal-adaptation to training
  11. Identify the signs and symptoms of overtraining
  12. Understand how to lower your risk of overtraining
  13. Understand key concepts in periodization
  14. Appreciate the art and science of periodization
  15. Identify the five phases of a fight plan (General preparatory phase, Fight-specific phase, Fight camp, The taper, The transition)
  16. Understand how to implement a testing battery to assess physical and mental performance in the following domains: Psychological skills and mood, Body size and composition, Flexibility, Muscular power, strength, endurance, An/aerobic performance, Sport-specific performance)
  17. Become familiar with The MMA Training Bible’s worksheets for creating unstoppable endurance in four steps
