ME black box + complexes for fighters=good idea?
 
Been experimenting this lately with myself and some teammates of mine. Here's a sample template

mon: mile run+MMA training
tue: ME + complexes
wed: MMA training
thu: rest
fri: ME+ complexes/CF
sat: CF
sun: ME+ MMA drills

any inputs? comments?

I am guessing that it is one ME lift per day from the big three squat, DL and press of some sort. If so I like it.

Are the complexes with sandbags or BB's? I am playing with sandbag complexes right now trying to put together a couple that are demanding on the entire body including grip.

I strongly suggest you have 2 rest days a week. I'd cut a ME day.

Otherwise looks fine. I'd put the ME day towards the front after a rest day and the running towards the end.

One day off a week perhaps seems a bit slim. I guess it depends on how intense some of your MMA classes are.

Ill be giving Coach Rut's ME Black Box method a try, as outlined here.

Personally I would recomend moving the MMA drills to Saturday, doing them before the CF workout and taking Sunday off.

A bit more rest will enable you to push it harder during the workouts which is usually better than working out more often.

Like everyone else, at least one more rest day, either cut a CF day or a ME day. I like lifting so I'd keep 3 ME days, but people recover differently from different stimulii

Would combining the ME upper and ME total into one day be a better option? Just take 5-10 minutes in between exercises.

Noted. I'll figure out how to allow an extra day of rest.

I wouldn't do this personally. Why not follow the original MEBB template, but replace standard CF with complex conditioning?

Ok I'll do that instead

more MMA, less workouts.
that is assuming that your end goal is to get better at MMA.
