The MMA Training Bible's Guide to Bioenergetics

Myths and misconceptions about the Science of MMA training can end a fighter’s career before it starts. Dr Gillis and The MMA Training Bible are here to set the record straight.

About Dr Gillis & The MMA Training Bible +
Dr. Jason Gillis

The MMA Training Bible, created by Dr Jason Gillis, aims to provide fighters and coaches in mixed martial arts and other combat sports with evidence-based training advice.

Dr Jason Gillis is an Assistant Professor working in the Human Performance Laboratory at Salem State University. Here, he engages in research and teaches Undergraduate and Graduate courses in strength and conditioning, exercise physiology, exercise testing and prescription and research methods.

Dr. Gillis is an environmental physiologist by training and has a research interest in the influence of menthol on human temperature regulation, perception and performance. He is also interested in recovery interventions following exercise-induced muscle damage, and the science of fighting.

Experiments over the years

Jason has conducted research for the UK Ministry of Defense, charities like the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, rehabilitation hospitals in Canada and Norway, and for the sports drinks and supplement industry.

Dr. Gillis has an international education. He completed his B.Sc (Hon) in Kinesiology at Dalhousie University in Canada, and went on to complete his Masters at KU Leuven University in Belgium, and at the Norwegian School of Sports Science in Norway. Jason completed his Ph.D. in England as part of the Research and Innovation Team at UK Sport in the run up to the Beijing and London Olympic Games.

Whether as a scientist, athlete, or coach, Jason is passionate about sports. He has a background in mixed martial arts and a particular interest in the science of fighting. In his spare time, he provides scientific support to athletes and coaches in combat sports.

  • It ain’t so much the things we don’t know that get us into trouble, it’s the things we know that ain’t so - Artemas Ward

    Dr Jason Gillis and The MMA Training Bible will teach you how your body powers the repeated high intensity efforts that dominate MMA. When you understand this, not only will you appreciate why you fatigue or gas-out in the cage, but you’ll know how to bring about specific metabolic adaptations and optimize your performance on fight day.

COURSE GOALS +

The goal of this ten-part video training course is to explore the Science of MMA. Specifically, you'll:

  1. Learn about the essentials of energy expenditure, anaerobic and aerobic energy metabolism, maximal aerobic fitness, and the anaerobic threshold.
  2. Understand why high intensity interval training is better than low intensity training, and  how to target a specific energy system in training.
  3. Learn the essentials of periodization, and how to best develop endurance in MMA.
COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES +

After completing this course, you will:

  1. Understand how food is converted to energy
  2. Describe how energy is stored in the body
  3. Understand the currency of energy production in the body
  4. Appreciate how energy is produced in the body by various systems
  5. Describe how energy systems coordinate together to power your performance in the cage
  6. Understand what energy system powers high intensity efforts like take-down attempts.
  7. Identify training objectives for the high-power energy systems
  8. Recognize performance adaptations that result from training the high-power system
  9. Appreciate what causes fatigue when you’re performing high-power efforts
  10. 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.
  11. Set metabolic training objectives for the prolonged high intensity energy system.
  12. Specify performance adaptations that arise from targeting the prolonged high intensity energy system.
  13. Identify probable causes of fatigue when you’re performing at a high intensity for a prolonged period of time.
  14. 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.
  15. Set metabolic training objectives for the repeated high intensity effort system.
  16. Specify performance adaptations that arise from targeting the repeated high intensity effort system.
  17. Identify probable causes of fatigue when you’re working at a repeated high intensity over the course of a whole fight.
  18. Define maximal aerobic fitness
  19. Understand the components that determine your maximal aerobic fitness
  20. Describe the relationship between maximal aerobic fitness and MMA performance
  21. Identify factors that influence maximal aerobic fitness
  22. Understand the relationship between breathing heavy and the energy systems powering your performance.
  23. Define low intensity training and high intensity interval training
  24. Understand the pro’s and con’s of low intensity training and high intensity interval training
  25. Understand that high intensity training is more appropriate for fighters in combat sports
  26. Understand how to target energy systems manipulating movement pattern, work interval, rest interval and exercise intensity.
  27. Understand what periodization is and identify the five phases of a fight plan
  28. Appreciate how to program your endurance training across all phases of the fight plan including 1) the General preparatory phase, 2) the Fight-specific phase, 3) the Fight camp 4) The taper, 5) The transition
  29. Learn how to match specific workouts to specific energy systems, and then place each workout in a fight plan
  30. Understand how to create recovery workouts, warm-ups & cool downs

Here's What You're Getting When You Purchase The MMA Training Bible's Guide to Bioenergetics Today...

  • Session 1: The basics of energy metabolism

    This session will explore 1) how energy is derived from food, 2) what the currency of energy in the human body is 3) how energy powers muscle contraction, 4) how to generate energy, and 5) how energy systems in the body work together to power your performance in the cage.

  • Session 2: The ATP-PCr system and power production

    You will learn 1) the characteristics of the high-power producing ATP-PCr system, 2) how the system works, 3) training objectives to maximize power, 4) performance adaptations, and 5) fatigue when you’re working at a high intensity.

  • Session 3: The burn from anaerobic glycolysis

    Session 3 covers 1) the characteristics of the system that allows you to perform at a prolonged high intensity: anaerobic glycolysis, 2) how the system works, 3) training objectives, 4) performance adaptations, and 5) fatigue when you’re working for a prolonged period at high intensity.
