Hi guys. I just recently purchased the Bas Rutten Mixed Martial Arts
Workout and wanted to hear what you guys thought. For those who dont know Bas Rutten, he is a fighter who is the former UFC Heavyweight Champion and the former King of Pancrase in Japan. He now teached mixed martial arts in Beverly Hills and is a commentator for the Pride Fighting Championchips on pay-per-view. The workout consists of a DVD and 4 audio CD's. The DVD explains the various workouts and techniques and the CD's are the actual workouts. The CDs each include two verions of each workout, 2 min rounds with 1 min rest in between or 3 min rounds with 1 min rest in between.
CD1 is the boxing workout which consists of Bas calling out various boxing combos that you can do shadowboxing, on focus pads or a heavy bag.
CD2 is the kickboxing workout and is pretty much the same as CD1 except there are kick combos added to the workout.
CD3 is the all around fighting workout and is the same as cd2 except there are sprawls and gound moves added. (When bas yells DEFENSE you have to sprwal into the pushp possition and then shoot back up).
The all around workout on cd4 is the same as cd3 except various excersises are added, including pushups, situps, mountain climbers ,etc.
You can see a better description of the workouts here: http://www.basrutten.tv/html/mma_workout.html
. That website gives an example of what you end up doing in the all around fighting workout:
On the 7 rounds of 3 minutes from the All Round Fighting tape you make:
424 knees or kicks
70 push ups
20 seconds in push up stand, making fast wrestling exercises. That's at least a punch/kick/sprawl/push up every second!
I was wondering what you guys thought of a workout like this? Would this be good for cardio? How would i encorporate this into a regular lifting routine
? I would be doing these workouts on the heavybag. Thanks guys....Im hoping this helps my get some motivation back.
