3 Ways A Martial Artist Can Lose Weight - MMA Clothing, Training, Diet

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 141

Some martial artists take fights at a very short notice, so they always train hard, but aren't as strict with their diet. Martial artists know their bodies well and what they have to do to get back in shape as it is their job to do so.

MMA fighters are generally in very good condition when it comes to fitness; however when they are not in preparation for a match they tend to let themselves slide - slightly. An MMA fighter's definition of slacking in the fitness department would still probably be regarded as an impressive fitness level to anyone else. However, when it comes to weight, MMA fighters must not stray too much from their weight class to make it easier for them to whip themselves back in shape in time for a weigh in. Here we share our top three techniques used to cut weight fast including MMA clothing, MMA training, MMA diet.

MMA training - Cardio

Cardio or cardiovascular exercise is the process of working out constantly without a break to increase the heart rate and to keep it elevated for a period of time. Forms of cardio would be jogging, swimming and fast walking. Implementing cardio into your workout routine is beneficial and not just for losing weight. It strengthens the heart and lungs, boosts metabolism which burns calories quicker, relieves stress, promotes restful sleep and increases energy.

MMA Diet

Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is essential during MMA training. Eating foods which aid in weight loss combined with food which feed your muscles are the basic eating principles for an MMA fighter. Eating starch and carbohydrate-rich foods such as potatoes, yams and brown rice provide essential energy when MMA training.

MMA clothing - sweat wear

Implementing MMA gear and MMA clothing such as a sweat suit will enhance and intensify your workout before a weigh in. Sweat suits increase your sweating rate across your entire body enabling you to lose your water weight which could make all the difference at a weigh in. Some examples of MMA clothing sweat wear work not only as sweat suits but also as rashguards.

MMA clothing, diet and training are only three of many ways of losing weight which can be implemented into an existing MMA training routine. To best utilise the benefits of these three tactics they should be used as part of an already successful MMA training routine and diet.
