MMA Body: Full Throttle Barbell Routine

Get the explosive power you need to take down an opponent, and the ripped physique to match.

To build the ultimate athletic MMA body, you need to not only lift heavy but also move weight explosively. By increasing power in all of your major muscles you’ll not only have the force to better take down your opponent, but you’ll will have a leaner physique to accompany that power.

To increase overall full-body power, perform a Barbell Complex twice a week. In the Training for Warriors system, we incorporate Barbell Complex’s on our metabolic days (Tuesday/Thursday). Time is the main parameter for determining intensity. Putting a time limit on it will ensure the right weight has been selected, therefore affecting the speed at which you’ll move the bar.

Target Muscles: Full-body workout
Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Frequency: Perform the barbell complex one to two times a week, resting at least a day between each session.
Time Needed: 20-45 Minutes

How To Do It:

After warming up, perform each exercise for 5 repetitions (explosively, with good form) consecutively, 1-8, in less then 60 seconds. Use a 1:2 ratio when resting between sets. Do a maximum of five total complexes per workout.
