Bodyweight Training – Fit to Fight
I love this saying: “Fit to fight.” I heard this from the #1 bodyweight training world record holder, Paddy Doyle. And he’s right, you need to be in shape to fight. More and more men and women are opting for weight training as the way to get fit in record time. MMA fighters and athletes around the world are starting to see the benefits of bodyweight exercises and getting results that propel them to the next level.
Using your own body weight as resistance isn’t just a few push-ups and crunches, it’s so much more. Bodyweight exercises are so versatile that you’ll never have to do the same workout again. A man who holds over 100 world records for bodyweight and martial arts is a man I want to learn from. Using his own body weight will make you a better athlete or burn your waste line fat like a spreading wildfire.
The fitness aspect of bodyweight training will not only work in the ring or get you in great physical shape, but it will also get you in a mental shape that will help you in life. The more you get better at using your body weight as resistance, the harder you’ll push yourself. You will start to push yourself harder and harder, you will start to feel like you are unstoppable. Martial artists and other athletes will become faster, stronger, more explosive with an “I’d rather die than give up” attitude. Bodyweight training will get you in shape to fight in the ring or in life.
Bodyweight training will build physical and mental strength that you will be proud of. So get in shape to fight. A short workout that you can try will only take a few minutes, so there are no excuses in time.
Choose 4 bodyweight exercises. For example, burpees, push-ups, jumping jacks, bodyweight squats. Each exercise should be done for 1 minute with a 1 minute rest between each exercise. After going through this 1 time, rest for 2 minutes and repeat one more time.
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity, you’ll soon be asking for oxygen.
