The ultimate strength and conditioning book for ultimate fighters. Mixed martial arts (MMA) is America's fastest-growing combat sport, with millions signing up for MMA classes and many more tuning in to "pay-per-view" to watch events with names like "Cage Rage" and "No Limit." MMA is not for wimps, and participants take a real pounding-they must be ready for anything. However, there is one way to predict a winner in any bout: conditioning. When facing an opponent with equal technical skill, the better-conditioned athlete will win-every match, every round, every time. Now, with amateur fight leagues springing up across the country, top conditioning coach Jason Ferruggia reveals the ultimate conditioning program for the ultimate fighter. By gaining overall strength, stamina, speed, and flexibility, athletes can substantially reduce their risk of injury in this intense contact sport. The key to Ferruggia's system is his emphasis on matspecific conditioning techniques. Too many would-be fighters use training programs borrowed from football or bodybuilding-methods that are all wrong for MMA. Included are: - A first-rate warm-up guaranteed to make a fighter more explosive and to reduce injuries - Off-the-charts strength-building secrets - Dozens of exercises to develop crushing grip strength - Top speed-building methods, including Olympic lifts, plyometrics, and throws - Incredibly effective exercises for building a thick, powerful neck that could be the difference between victory and serious injury Each exercise is accompanied by black-and-white photos illustrating proper technique and form, and "Inside the Cage" tips share the secrets to success from top professional fighters.

Tudor Bompa revolutionized Western training methods when he introduced his groundbreaking theory of periodization in Romania in 1963. He has since gone on to become a world-renowned exercise scientist and the foremost authority on periodization and the development of biomotor abilities. In Periodization of Strength Training for Sports, Fourth Edition, Bompa partners with international strength and conditioning expert Carlo Buzzichelli to go beyond the simple application of bodybuilding or powerlifting programs to show you what training to schedule—and when—to build athletic strength and maximize performance at the right time. Periodization of Strength Training for Sports demonstrates how to use periodized workouts to peak at optimal times by manipulating strength training variables through six training phases—anatomical adaptation, hypertrophy, maximum strength, conversion to specific strength, maintenance, and peaking. Coaches and athletes in 30 sports now have at their fingertips proven programs that take into consideration the specific phases and unique demands of their sport, along with information about the dominant energy system, limiting factors for performance, and objectives for strength training. No more guessing about preseason conditioning, in-season workloads, or rest and recovery periods—now it’s simply a matter of implementing the strategies in this book. Rather than experiment with untested training regimens, let the proven science and ready-made training schedules go to work for you. Periodization of Strength Training for Sports eliminates the guesswork and establishes a clear path to achieving the best results for peaking at the ideal time. CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. The Periodization of Strength Training for Sports Online CE Exam may be purchased separately or as part of the Periodization of Strength Training for Sports With CE Exam package that includes both the book and the exam.

Preparing for the Army Combat Fitness Test is the ideal resource to help you assess your readiness and train for the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT). Because soldiers operate on a three-dimensional battlefield where physical demands are often variable and unpredictable, the Army’s revised physical test provides a more diverse measurement of a soldier's physical abilities than its predecessor. But if you are one of the 200,000 annual recruits or the 1.2 million active duty soldiers who must pass these new protocols, this diverse test may bring anxiety and uneasiness. That is where this essential guide can help. Backed by the expertise of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Preparing for the Army Combat Fitness Test is the first book on the market to address the requirements of the ACFT and provide you with the tools you need to be prepared for testing day. Consisting of six events—the 3 Repetition Maximum Deadlift, Standing Power Throw, Hand Release Push-Up–Arm Extension, Sprint-Drag-Carry, Leg Tuck, and Two-Mile Run—the ACFT will test physical characteristics that you can develop and cultivate with the training guidelines in this book. For each testing event, you’ll find a description of the test, instructions on performing the test safely and effectively, and scoring standards so you know the minimum performance requirements to pass and avoid being disqualified on testing day. To begin, you will be guided through a self-assessment that will allow you to determine your current readiness and select a training program to maximize your performance outcomes. A variety of sample training plans are provided so you can select a plan based on how much time you have to prepare for the ACFT and the amount of time you have available to train. Choose from 24-, 12-, 8-, or 4-week plans that contain workouts for two, three, four, or five days a week. Setup and execution guidelines are provided for over 100 exercises, so you can safely and effectively execute the exercises assigned within your training program. Accompanying photos visually demonstrate how to perform the exercises. If you don’t have access to the necessary equipment for the primary exercises, suggestions are offered for replacement exercises that are similar in movement and training outcome. Completing this comprehensive training resource is valuable supplemental information about nutrition, hydration, physical and mental recovery, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The ACFT does not have to feel overwhelming. With a good preparation plan and commitment to training, you can show up on test day with confidence. Preparing for the Army Combat Fitness Test will give you the edge you need to excel and achieve your best on the Army Combat Fitness Test. Get more help from the app! Looking for additional resources to make sure you are in peak condition for the test? The Volt Athletics training app, which is available separately, provides programming based on this book that you can use to help with your training.
