Sequence of Conditioning Exercises for Fighters and Martial Artists

New article titled “Sequence of Conditioning Exercises for Fighters and Martial Artists in Long-Term Training and in a Single Workout” is posted on stadion.com.

In this article you will learn about the sequence of strength and endurance exercises in long-term training and in a single workout.

A rationally designed strength training program begins with developing the core of the body and the stabilizing muscles (see the 5th and 6th principles of conditioning in the article “Principles of Conditioning for Sports and Martial Arts.” People with a weak core of the body (trunk muscles) can strain their backs, hip flexors, and abdomens while doing sets of kicks and punches.

A strong trunk is the basis for strengthening arms and legs so their joints can withstand punching and kicking. As a bonus, having strong legs makes it possible to safely and quickly develop the ability to do splits with isometric stretching.

You can start work on aerobic fitness at the same time you begin work on strengthening the trunk, so by the time you are ready for intensive strength exercises your aerobic fitness is good. Aerobic fitness makes you healthier and speeds up your recovery after speed, strength, and muscular endurance exercises. It thus allows for a high volume and intensity of other conditioning and sport-specific exercises (see the 2nd principle of conditioning in the article “Principles of Conditioning for Sports and Martial Arts.” Even sprinters and weightlifters develop aerobic fitness (Kurz 2001).
