Few Thoughts on MMA Program Design

I have been recently involved in designing and implementing a physical preparation program for the local MMA club Car Dušan Silni at my friend’s gym Superiorni Atleta.

In the video below, I am going through some of my thought processes and rationale regarding the implemented program. I am discussing the overall philosophy of training, top-down approach vs. bottom-up approach, how to deal with attendance issues, how to build robust program and MVP (minimum viable program), should extra conditioning be implemented and how, and much more.

If you are interested in the physical preparation of the combat athletes, please give this a listen and leave your comments below. Interested to hear your thoughts and feedback.
