This Brand New Report Tells You Everything You Need to Know to Prepare Yourself For the Unique Physical Challenges of Combat Sports
Don't Step Into the Ring Again Until You've Read It…
Combat sports are enjoying something of a boost in popularity. It’s not just the more traditional sports like boxing and wrestling that are gaining popularity. More ‘extreme’ sports such as kick-boxing and Mixed Martial Arts (sometimes known as cage fighting or extreme fighting) are attracting bigger crowds than ever to their events – and lots more participants as well.
The very nature of combat sports, however, means you must pay particular care and attention to your preparation. Playing a regular, weekend game like football is one thing; stepping into a combat sports arena on such a casual basis quite another.
You’re simply asking for trouble…
Because there are so many more people wanting to participate in combat sports, we’ve made this the subject of our latest ‘mini report’: Training For Combat Sports.

First let me tell you a bit about the three expert contributors who put the report together for us. Because each of them was specially chosen for their firsthand experience in this area:

  • Andy Harrison BSc, MSc is a physiologist who works as athlete services manager for the English Institute of Sport
  • Nick Grantham is a lead strength and conditioning coach, with the English Institute of Sport. Previously he worked with the England Netball team and the British Gymnastics team.
  • James Marshall MSc, CSCS, ACSM/HFI, runs Excelsior, a sports training company.

All three are highly experienced, sports conditioning professionals working with elite athletes across a range of different sports. So you can be sure their advice is informed, up-to-date – and highly pertinent to anyone seeking to perform better, no matter which combat sport they participate in.
When I commissioned Andy, James and Nick to write this special report, I set them two clear objectives:

  • scrutinise all the very latest sports scientific research into the best ways to condition one’s body for the physical challenges of combat sports – not just the academic journals that we regularly review for our Peak Performance and Sports Injury Bulletin specialist newsletters, but all the not-yet-published material as well. Findings that have only recently emerged – and have not yet made it into the specialist media. Secrets of sporting success that might not ever make it into the magazines you find on the high street news-stands. (Because some of this stuff is highly technical, and not easily understood by your average journalist or magazine editor.)
  • synthesise their findings into a concise, readable report. No impenetrable scientific jargon – only the facts about what you need to know about preparing yourself for the rigours of combat sports…. and you can use this information to your advantage.

Here are just some of the fascinating facts you’ll learn about exclusively in Training For Combat Sports:

  • What are the specific fitness requirements for combat sports? (p. 10)
  • What are the best work-to-rest ratios for developing the aerobic and anaerobic systems? (p. 12)
  • How should you go about incorporating interval training into your preparation regimes? (p. 13)
  • What are the tricks to getting stronger as a fighter – without getting bigger? (p. 14)
  • What’s the ‘secret’ weight-training technique that allows you to lift maximal weight while only being under load for a short time – so you can safeyy increase the total volume of high-quality work you do in a set? (p. 15)
  • Given the physical requirements of all combat sports, why is it important that circuit training be used with considerable caution? (p. 17)
  • What are the lessons that participants in other, newer combat sports must learn from the strength training techniques used by wrestlers? (pp.21-28) This chapter alone makes the report worth reading.
  • Which key variables should you consider when designing a resistance program for combat sports? (p. 23

and much, much more…
Your copy of Training For Combat Sports comes complete with tables and diagrams, where needed, to supplement the explanatory text. In short, everything you need to put an end to any confusion on the subject.
So now you can be a fitter, faster, more successful combat athlete – one who can train harder and longer without risking over-training or serious injury, and compete at a higher level than ever.
Too good to be true? Not at all. Read on and you’ll see why.
