    a lot of that is god stuff but the absolute most important thing for me is working in my power range. Strength-speed work or (DE stuff for the wsb tards) is what I feel is most beneficial to me. Once you get good at jujitsu or BJJ or whatever sub wrestling you do....you learn to relax and work slowly and deceptively for position and when the time is right explode into a sub or a dominant position. If you are pulling on someone for more than a few seconds your technique is shitty.


    Overall though a good article, I would just add that a lot of strength-speed and then speed strength needs to be done leading up to a fight.

    Thanks for the article, its always nice to see some MMA related items pop up every now and again. On that note, any of the fighters here tried mixing some tabata aka Guerilla Cardio drills into your routines? Alot of guys on a mma forum have been been giving nothing but praise, just wondering if anyone had any personal experience?
