5 Secrets To Getting Ripped With MMA Workouts
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

So I’m sure you’ve been training in your new MMA Workouts pretty aggressively recently. Maybe you’re looking to get in the cage, and maybe you’re just looking to get in shape. Well, no matter what your training or workout goal, there are 5 secrets that will guarantee that you will meet that goal, and bust through your training plateaus.

Set a deadline – Most fighters know a few months in advance when their next fight will be. They use that as a method to commit to their training for the next 8-12 weeks. MMA Workouts are no different. Set a specific goal and give yourself a timeframe that you will commit to accomplishing that goal. Setting a deadline is one of the most effective methods for not only meeting MMA Workout goals, but also becoming more efficient at accomplishing any goals in life, whether they are MMA Workouts, losing weight, completing a project at work, or any other personal plan.

Get a good team – Having a team to help you and support you is one of the most powerful tools in training. Having of a team in your MMA Workouts extends far beyond having the advice of an experienced coach. It comes with the support to keep pushing. They can provide the feedback on your progress, challenge you to new heights, and keep you accountable to meeting your deadlines in your MMA Workouts.

Follow a Plan – If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. The same goes in MMA Workouts. Planning is key, and your team can help you make that plan. Look at your end game, and figure out PRECISELY how you will get there, and structure your MMA Workouts to support that plan. Know that every piece of your plan will bring you one step closer to your goal. Most importantly, is to measure those steps. Monitor your progress! Keep track of your sets, your reps. See them rise and know that your goal is getting closer. Weigh yourself regularly and see yourself getting closer to your goal, one pound at a time.

Visualize – Make your goal specific. “I want to get in shape” or “I want to lose weight” are decent starts for your MMA Workouts. But try and imagine those things. Is it clear or is it kind of blurry? Saying something more specific like “I want to lose 10 pounds of pure fat” or “I want to get down to 8% body fat” are much more specific and vivid goals for your MMA workouts. Imagine yourself in a ring or a cage. Visualize the scale and the number you want to be at, the BMI, the ref holding your hand up at the end of the match. Top Olympic and World champion athletes frequently and consistently use visualization to further their goals, and you should too for your MMA Workouts.

Focus on your Behaviors – On a daily basis, start to become more and more conscious of your frequent behaviors. Are they bringing you closer to your goals in your MMA Workouts, or are they really sabotaging your efforts? Did you skip a workout recently and make up a poor excuse? Are you eating foods that are going to pack on pounds of belly fat? Look back at steps 3 and 4 and just remember to follow your plan. Visualize the endgame of your MMA Workouts to reinforce those behaviors. Use steps 1 and 2 for extra motivation. Remember that you have to hit your goal by a certain date, and these sabotaging acts aren’t helping you meet that goal. Use your team to help keep you on track.

These 5 secrets to getting ripped apply not only to your MMA workouts, but also to any goals you set for yourself, and any aspect in your life. But start small, with your own body. Start inside, work your way out, and the success will follow in many other areas. To help you get started, I have a free MMA Conditioning workout and 12 day meal plan available on my site.
