A Fighting Workout

Here are 4 Workout tips used by martial arts fighters notably the UFC.
Bar Bell Push
Get a barbell that is 80% of your on rep max and lie on a bench. Lift it up as high as you can, then slowly lower it down to your chest while inhaling. Then push it up as powerfully as you can while keeping your arms straight.
Reps - 10-12
Squat Press
Stand on a bosu ball with your feet shoulder width apart. Then slowly raise your arms so they are parallel to the ground. Bend you knees and hips to lower yourself in the squat position while keeping your arms straight. Try and go as low as you can, then rinse and repeat.
Reps – 10-12
Skipping requires a lot of hand eye co-ordination and involves a lot of practice before you can move fluently between each swing of the rope. When you have had enough practice and feel competent, mix up your swings with different styles (Double Jumps, Split leg, Single – leg hops).
Time – 2 Minutes
Bosu Ball Pull
Firstly place your right hand on the bosu ball then your knee with a light bar bell in your left hand. With the light barbell in your left hand raise it in a rowing motion towards yourself, while making sure your core is tight all the way through. A bosu ball is suitable for people of all ages; they are used to train your balance and aerobic activities.
Reps -10-12
