Fartlek training for MMA 'Speed Play'

A typical routine updated:

You will need to plan your fartlek routine around what you are training for. Fartlek training can have enormous benfits.
It can be a great speed tool in your arsenal and it does wonders for your fitness bank.
A typical routine consists of changes of pace, running, jogging and walking for set time periods and a training partner who can keep up with you enough to yell out what you need to do next as you might not be able to remember it all at first.

Fartlek means speed play in Swedish, this is how to play;
 1     5 minutes jogging to warm up
 2     2 minutes 80 per cent full pace running
 3     2 minutes at a normal pace running
 4     30 seconds at 100 percent pace
 5     30 seconds slow jog
 6     2 minutes at 80 percent pace
 7     1 minute at 100 percent pace
 8     2 minutes of jogging
 9     1 minute walking
10    2 minutes at normal pace
11    2 minutes 80 percent
12    30 seconds at 100 percent pace
13    30 seconds slow jog
14    2 minutes at 80 percent
15    1 minute normal pace
16    1 minute at 100 percent pace
17    5 minutes of jogging to cool down

A good way to begin Fartlek training is to incorporate it in to your normal routine as a seperate session every 4 to 5 weeks. 

Always stretch and cool down properly after a every Farlek session. Do not cut corners! 

Advanced only / Next level 

Rest for a short period (depending on your level of fitness) and sip some fluids, then get started on the bag, pads, speedball etc whatever suits

3 x sets of 25 reps of each punch
3 x sets of 25 reps each kick
3 x sets each elbow strike etc and so on.....

This type of training will tax you to your limits but will over time have a massive overall effect on your fitness. It will however require a good level of fitness and should be incorporated once you are fully familiar with the Fartlek training system. 

And remember, all good things come to those that wait!

Train Hard, Fight Easy.

WEC/UFC - Dana White

Dana White: WEC, UFC to merge in 2011 -

Click link to watch;

UFC/WEC merger.

World Extreme Cagefighting is merging with its sister organization the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

UFC president Dana White has stated that the merger will happen in January 2011, which means that the UFC will now feature for the first time a 135 and 145-pound weight class. The WEC lightweight division fighters will also move over to the UFC.

"The timing was right," White said. "The reality is, we purchased the WEC, we started getting these lighter weight guys exposure on television, sending them around the country and arenas. Now, as the UFC continues to grow globally and we're doing more and more fights, now it makes sense to bring in those lighter weight classes."
"We're going to add more fights every year and add more countries, more television networks in different countries. So now it makes sense."

Before the merger takes place, WEC will put on 2 more events.

By the time the merger takes place, the WEC will have put on 53 events, including one pay-per-view card in April 2010.
