When it comes strength and conditioning for MMA, I would be completely remiss without ever covering the topic of diet and nutrition.
If you train but neglect your diet and nutrition, it’s actually better for you that DON’T TRAIN AT ALL.
Why? Because after a strength and/or conditioning workout, your body then relies on two components to repair: rest and nutrients. Without the proper nutrients to restore muscle tissue, you’re really just wasting your time.
So what’s a good diet and nutrition plan MMA fighters should follow?
If you’re looking to cut weight safely and effectively, maintain balanced energy for your training throughout the day, build lean muscle, burn fat, or all of the above, then you gotta check out Jonathan Stamey’s blog post series on The MMA Diet.
