The Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program draws from his knowledge and experience as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and an MMA and UFC trainer. This isn’t a generic program for people who want to get fit, it is a comprehensive system specifically designed for those who want to succeed in BJJ and MMA.
This is only for those who are serious about training. Weekend warriors need not apply.
The Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program gets my pick as the top BJJ and MMA training program for the following reasons.
It is comprehensive. Really comprehensive.
Ultimate MMA is a truly complete training program for BJJ and MMA fighters – you will not need another strength and conditioning program ever again.
From the psychology of goal setting to how to warm up properly for MMA and full 8, 12 and 16 week programs, Wong covers everything in exacting detail.
He also explains the science behind his program. For example, did you know your body has 3 energy systems – aerobic, anaerobic lactic and anaerobic alactic? Wong explains what these are, how they are used in a MMA / BJJ match and how to specifically train each energy system.
But because it’s well written and well presented, it’s really easy to follow. The information is sensibly broken down into key points making it simple to understand and simple to remember. I believe it’s always best to understand why you train in a certain way. Knowledge can make you a better athlete. But if you don’t have the time or inclination to understand the ‘why’, you can just focus on the ‘how’ and follow the training program.
One of the great things about Ultimate MMA is that it’s not a hardcopy book but comes in electronic format. Now some people will prefer being able to pick up a training manual but having it electronically has some really neat benefits. Top of the list is video. Following written instructions is one thing. Being able to watch and follow audio-visual instructions takes things to a whole new level.
It is written for MMA fighters
This is the single most compelling reason why I pick Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning as my top training program. It is laser focused on MMA fighters.
For example, the training program is designed to fit in with skills training. MMA and BJJ fighters don’t want to hit the gym seven days a week. We need to fit time in to hit the mats and train our skills.
The workouts are all specifically designed around what an MMA fighter needs. For example, underhooks are a key element for any BJJ or MMA fighter. The program includes training to specifically develop strong underhooks. Wong also goes through the most common injuries MMA fighters suffer and then shows you how to train to strengthen and protect those body parts.
Is it all good news?
To be honest, it is. If you’re serious about MMA or BJJ, if you want to be in the best shape to win competitions, you need the Ultimate MMA Strength and Conditioning Program. It’s such a complete and comprehensive resource, you’ll literally be able to bin all your other workout programs.
