While most of us consider the hard work we put in on the mats to be sufficient, sometimes it just isn't enough. If you want to elevate your game, not get winded after rolling with a whitebelt, or just live a healthier lifestyle, additional conditioning is probably your answer. Most of us have seen the crazy workouts that MMA athletes endure during UFC Countdown shows, but a lot of us have yet to realize that all the top grapplers have also adopted extensive nutrition and strength/conditioning routines as well. So today we are going to overload your tiny brain with tons of conditioning. Our goal is to inspire you to train harder, eat better, and work out more. But, we are pretty sure it might just depress some of you beyond help and you may have to turn to watching reruns of the Tyra Show for moral support.
Check out ADCC vet and Luta Livre extraordinaire, Andreas "Andyconda" Schmidt, kicking some ass with his FITALO Ring Training. Schmidt's FITALO system is an effective method of functional fitness training for the whole body.
And secondly we had to throw in a kick ass video from our buddies over at PTT that shows the rigorous conditioning they employ for their athletes.
