Hello, First I just want to say happy new year to all of you:)
Anyway, I was wondering if someone could help me with a situation?
I have been lifting for a few years and gained some decent size. When I joined a mma club, my cardio sucked but my grappling (using strength) was enough to fend off my teammates fr a short while.
Now for the past 6-8 mth I have tried using a mma style workout (aka wiggy-hypertprophy).
The results have been that I have lost size(1/2 of it fat,and a little size) but more importantly strength, believe it or not.
My teammates have not changed their workouts, but are instead throwing me around now like a rag doll.
My question is, I am thinking of going back to weighlifting ( a max-ot style ) and doing taku's interval traing for cardio.
Do you think this will work for mma or am I missing an element that made me lose so much strength.
Any help would be appreciated.
btw my diet from this time frame has cleaned up, not perfectly but none the less way better then when Ifirst started..
