|MMA Gym - Relative Strength|
One of the best examples of relative strength, absolute strength in relation to body weight, mixed martial arts was the late Bruce Lee. He said that pound for pound one of the greatest martial artists of his time, weighing between 130-140 pounds, but doing strength exercises that most people who weigh 200 pounds + could not. So how to develop this phenomenal strength, without losing the desired weight?
Bruce began his strength training MMA building its strength through the years made more basic. Exercises like squats, bench presses, deadlifts, rows, leuanvedoille, shoulder presses, curls, etc.
As he increased his strength with these exercises, he would continue to build strength in other exercises, just change his routine enough that it would not stagnate and hit any plateaus or "nodes" too soon.
It 'important to understand here that the Bruce, and many other athletes for that matter, has spent the first two years just building strength in this way: with the more basic compound exercises. Of all the different strengths can be developed, the absolute strength, endurance strength, muscular endurance, strength, strength, endurance, absolute strength, etc. takes the longest to develop. Although the absolute strength alone is only effective as a mixed martial artist, serves as the basis for any other power.
Go back to Bruce. After spending a good time to develop his core strength overall, would then need to go to some kind of circuit training (today known as strength training complex in October around the world) to build strength and resistance to lose all the unwanted fat, could have gained during his basic needs for the construction of the force.
As more experience with strength training, then Bruce started with the type of exercise, which is still little known publicly, and surprisingly not yet taught in October around the world, even if it is to develop some of the most Mixed Martial Artist functional strengths are: isometric training.
Isometries is a form of weight training where you either push or pull against an immovable object, or hold a static position against a weight resistance. Sounds like a familiar kind of force used in MMA? Frequently Asked MMA fighters will use the isometric force is to fight for or against a pass.
Isometrics are much better than dynamic exercises to increase the maximum power of only one corner, but do not develop the strength of the entire range of motion, such as awareness of concentric and eccentric exercise.
Isometric exercise is a great way to develop maximal strength of the different points of view without increasing muscle mass. The integration of isometric exercises on its territory the program of strength training, not only to develop a relative strength, but it is necessary to develop more functional strength, because the MMA fighters often have to push, pull, or oppose their opponents are pushing or pulling against you.
These positions occur much more often, especially for decision, so that the movement standard eccentric / concentric where you push or pull an opponent across a wide range of motion.
