Conditioning for Fighters Workout – Bodyweight and Abs Training

Here is a highlight of my conditioning for fighters circuit from

This week I crushed them with a bodyweight circuit followed by abs and core training.

I love bodyweight training, especially for fighters because you can improve overall cardio, endurance, explosiveness. mobility, agility and muscular endurance while burning fat.

Using bodyweight exercises is generally better on the joints and will make them stronger while decreasing chances of injury.

The abs training at the end is essential for all athletes in order to strengthen core to also help decrease injury but improve overall strength and athleticism.

Add Bodyweight HIIT circuits 2X per week into your overall training after your skill training session or on an off combat training day.

Abs and core should be trained at least 3-4X per week.

Bodyweight HIIT Circuit

Do 2 rounds of this 10-exercise circuit. Perform each exercise for 60 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds rest one after the other with no rest in between. Rest for 2 minutes and finish 2-3 rounds
