Second Act: Beginning Martial Arts After Age 50

Posted on 26 June 2012 by Jillian Bullock

When many people reach age 50 they tend to start saying things such as: “I’m getting old.” “I’m over the hill.” “These aches and pains in my body are a part of life, there’s nothing I can do about it.” However, now there are even more middle-aged people who are defying aging and not looking to settle in Florida and watch the sun set over the water.  In fact, according to many fitness experts, there have been a growing number of people over 50 who have begun what they call – a second act of their life – by taking up martial arts.

How To Explode Your Striking Game!

Posted on 30 April 2012 by Tony Hackerott

Every mixed martial arts fight begins on the feet so it’s a wonder why more fighters don’t develop devastating striking skills and look to lay their opponent out. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of guys out there that have average to above average striking skills, but for all those guys there are twice as many who don’t take the time to get good at the stand up game. Amateur fighters are especially bad at this, because the level of talent isn’t as deep so they don’t see the devastating leg kicks or the fluid combinations.

Cross Training for the MMA Fighter

Posted on 10 April 2012 by Tony Hackerott

Cross training is a term that gets tossed around a lot in the fitness world.  People try to make it sound more elaborate than it really is and don’t give it enough credit toward taking your game to the next level.  I’ve heard the saying several times, “that if you want to be a fighter then you have to train to fight.”

Protein Powder & MMA: How Much Do You Really Need?

Posted on 24 March 2012 by Tony Hackerott

Elite athletes are always looking to get a leg up on their competition and one way they do so is with the use of supplements, either performance enhancing or muscle development. Not all supplements are bad or banned by the athletic commissions. Whey protein powder is a pretty common supplement that helps build muscle, makes a great recovery drink, and is legal to use for competition. While it is a great product to use when you are training it is quite easy to get carried away and consume more protein than your body needs or can handle. If you choose to add whey protein powder to your routine then make sure you know both the benefits and pitfalls as well as know just how much your body needs.
