Honestly I don't feel very strong competitively. It needs work.
When your next fight?
The time to get strong is before you start fight prep not during
Pretty much what I expected. Get strong our wide camp. Gonna get on that. Next fight 7th December.
You run a 4or 8 week fight camp?
Keep the strength stuff easy one day deadlift and incline bench, trap bar if you have it it's easier and uses more legs.
Other day power cleans, weighed chins and one leg squats
Work up to a heavy set of 3 - 5 reps each exercise that's it.
All the above can be learned from YouTube.
Trapbar deadlifts are easy to do, hard to do.wrong and hit front and back of the legs, core and don't fry the lower back or CNS.
Incline press is easier to.do.right than flat and works the shoulders more which a fighter needs.
Power cleans add explosive work and posterior work in.
Weighted chins help with pulling and holding someone.
And single leg squats work the legs in plane you will find in a fight, without hurting the lower back
What he said. Do not learn power cleans from Mark Rippetoe by the way. Also I am guessing Icefield by one-leg you mean split squats and not pistol squasts, no? Always worth clarifying
Yep slit squats or Bulgarian squats
I honestly don't like rippetoe for anything I like Joe kenns approach to the power clean for athletes
The only reason I can train like I do is due to being on closing shifts at the gym I work at, I stay late and train at my own pace with weightlifting. that gives me four nights a week on my own.
