We’re all looking to take our workouts to the next level right? As fight sport athletes, we’re always looking to sharpen our skills and increase our conditioning. The Everlast PowerCore FIT Bag is an amazing tool made specifically for the fight sports athlete and enthusiasts alike, designed to get you the most out of your workout, blending functional multi-joint movements, with the option of striking and grappling for my MMA guys. The possibilities on the FIT bag are endless. Here are 10 of my favorite movements.
Sit Up to Press
Mountain Climber Knee Strike
Standing Chest Press
Alternating Plank Elbow Strike
Squat and Press
Plank Walk Ups
Now, take a few of these movements (no more the six) and put them into a timed interval. Always use a 2:1 ratio, meaning if you work for 1 minute, you rest for 30 seconds. Keep the intervals short and explosive with a conscious effort to perform each rep as hard as possible, but with good form. You can also do these movements using Tabata intervals. Remember, these training sessions should be kept short in duration and performed at high intensity throughout. Mix this into your normal fight sports training about 3 days a week and you’ll see your conditioning increase dramatically.
