To become a stronger fighter, you must use resistance training correctly... Historically, old-school fight coaches claimed that weight training makes fighters big and slow. But that’s only true if you use resistance training poorly. When used in the right way, weight training can either make you much stronger WITHOUT getting any bigger, or both bigger and stronger together, meaning you get FASTER, not slower!
And as we’ve seen in the previous episode, getting “the wrong kind of big” will sabotage your speed... How you use resistance training is critical. Weight training is a tool. We can’t blame the tool for bad results if it’s being used inappropriately! Let’s dig into how to best use weight training to level up your fight performance.
