  • Weight Training or Martial Arts?

    What do you prefer?

    I did weight training for a couple of years and found it to be the most tedious and repetitive thing in the world. In the end I had to stop and I started boxing ( plus a little bit of mma but mainly boxing). I found learning how to fight was considerably more interesting and useful than weight training. Not only are you learning some very useful skills, you are also staying in shape and each lesson is different, theres none of that repetitiveness that you get with weight training.

    Which do you enjoy more and does anyone do both together?

    do both, most effective.

      Can't really get into weight training anymore. I would like to become more explosive tho in the way I fight and I've been told weights can help with that but don't have a clue where to start when it comes to explosive weight training. Maybe brother Ahmed can help with that

        If I could I would do both.

        But I don't think I'll have the time for both to be honest.

        Plus I don't want to lose any brain cells getting punched in the head... lol.

        I did MMA a long time ago but that was only for a short while. The hardest part is to stay consistent, and I evidently failed at that. Plus it ain't cheap.

          I did explosive strength training with kettlebell, you can try looking into what american football players do. They are all about explosive power

              I use a 8 KG, I go to my local MMA gym that does kettlebell conditioning.

              don't let the size fool you, you will find out when you use that to do 30 minute routine if you have never used a kettelbell before. The dynamics of the exercise changes.

                            I enjoy wrestling.... Lions... And hunting down yettis and climing the tallest hill known to man lies

                            And weight lifting is so freiken tough! I do it all the time, and have tiny biceps when I clinch my fists and push my arm up, hoping it will bulge up from all the training I do one day: I have a hand bag baby bag and a toddler on one arm and a 6month baby in her carrier in the othe hand... I have to race them both weights to my car before I pass out and same from the car to the door before I pass out :p
