In all of MMA it is the two fighters that are both punching each other bloody that get the crowd and MMA fans going nuts! However if you train in MMA I bet you also get just as much excitement out of watching a well crafted submission move. Mixed martial artists understand and respect how hard it is to work your way into one of these submission moves. The amount of strategy behind getting your opponent to tap out. What looks like just a few seconds to the average MMA fan took months of preparation and submission training. Unlike a clean knockout (which is also exciting don’t get me wrong) a submission move takes a tremendous amount of preparation and work to watch and learn the tenancies of your opponent and capitalize on them.

One workout I saw the other day with Jens Pulver is the Tennis Ball pushup. This is done with a tennis ball in both your right and left hands. Then clamp the ball and your palm to the pull up bar. This will turn tough guys into babies. Next time you are there designing your MMA workout throw this little movement in your arsenal. You will thank us for it!

A lot of MMA fighters don’t quite understand the true power behind the bicep slicer. This submission type move is also known in MMA circles as the bicep crusher or the bicep lock. This is one of the most under-utilized submission moves in MMA and submission fighting.
