Bodyweight training: fit to fight
I love this saying: “Fit to fight.” I heard this from the number one man in world bodyweight training records, Paddy Doyle. And he has it right, you need to be fit to fight. More and more men and women are embracing bodyweight training as the path to optimal fitness in record time. MMA fighters and athletes around the world are beginning to notice the benefits of bodyweight exercises and are getting results that take them to the next level.
Using your own body weight for resistance isn’t just a few push-ups and sit-ups, it’s so much more. Bodyweight exercises are so versatile that you will never have to do the same exercise again. A man who has more than 100 world records for body weight and martial arts is a man I want to learn from. Using your own body weight will make you a better athlete or burn your waste line fat like wild fire.
The physical fitness aspect of bodyweight training will not only work in the ring or to keep you in good physical shape, but it will put you in mental shape that will carry you through life. The more you improve using your body weight as resistance, the more you push yourself. You will start to push yourself harder and harder, you will start to feel unstoppable. Martial artists and other athletes will become faster, stronger, more explosive with a “I’d rather die than give up” attitude. Bodyweight training will get you fit 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, jumps, bodyweight squats. Each exercise should be done for 1 minute with a 1 minute break 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 will soon need to get oxygen.
