    Really varies a lot from what I've seen.

    Some kickboxers do no weight training at all. Others do incorporate it.

    Same with jiu jitsu guys.

    I think most mixed martial artists do incorporate weights, but again not all.

    youve got two slightly contadictory arts there in terms of training. dont get me wrong, they compliment each other very well from a SD point of view but youre looking for slightly different things from each in terms of what you're asking your body to do.

    what condition are you in now? what are your strengths and weaknesses in terms of physical strength, stamina, speed in the ring, flexibility, reflexes etc? eg if youre already quite a big guy, say, it might be best to work on fitness and flexibility as your weight brings with it a degree of power?

    if youre just starting out in weighlifting you cant go too far wrong whatever you do but i would suggest more like a powerlifting routine, and just go for strength. the training you get at your clubs will give you all of the rest and some extra strength will be handy on the deck.

    Yes I think many do.

    As for what sort of training, that will vary according to the fighter.

    If you take the example of Ken Shamrock, clearly he looks different from say Pedro Rizzo. They train differently. Pedro as far as I know (info from an interview a few years back) does no weight lifting, and relies on his sparring and grappling to keep him strong. Ken on the other hand trains with weights a lot, as you can tell by his lifts and his physique.

    There's no one way in which fighters train. But yes I do believe that most MMA guys do lift weights to some extent, especially the guys in the higher weight divisions.

    I know we have a few guys here who do MMA so maybe they can chime in. I remember one MT member spent some time training with Randy Couture a while back.

    I'm just starting weight lifting for my MA.
    I want to increase strength in the core muscle groups and the strength in my lower back.
    All power comes from hip and abdomen region.

    I came across this in my search for information on weight training for MA.
    Hope it helps.

    Just to add to this, Ive been kickboxing for just over 3 years now. Ive been using an altered version of Frankies 2 day mass routine for a good year or so now (prior to that I was using 3 split, high reps)> It has worked for me and doesnt interfere too much with mykickboxing (ive got used to the sore shoulders!!)
    It has also much improved my kicking strength due to the squatting and back work.

    Ive got a full contact fight in 3 weeks however, and have had to drop one day of weights simply because im training monday to friday both boxing and kickboxing - I wasnt recovering from the weights and it was affecting my training big time as my shoulders are constantly hurting. So for the next 3 weeks ill just be training saturday on the weights, giving me a good days rest on sunday before boxing on monday :)

    Basically it all depends on whether your training for a fight or just to maintain your techniques and fitness. I fully reccomend Frankies 2 day split, its just enough to fit in nicely if your doing martial arts many times a week

    One of the best things I've ever done for myself.
    I love the discipline. I love the mental challenge.
    I love the self-improvement.
    I love that I can kick-ass if I need to, but you'd never know I could by looking at me. LOL!

    I think Body-building and MA are very similar in their process.
    I am looking forward to my Body-building journey in combination with my MA.
